BOISE, Idaho — For the first time in several weeks we know who the starting quarterback will be for the Boise State Broncos as they prepare for Hawaii in the Mountain West championship game.

Senior Jaylon Henderson led the Broncos to three straight victories in his first three starts as a Bronco and this week BSU officially moved Henderson to the top of the depth chart.

"I think tthat says it all right there," said Coach Bryan Harsin. "We made a change and Jaylon has proven himself and done a really good job."

This season Henderson had gone 64-104 for 820 yards and nine touchdowns against just one interception.

Freshman Hank Bachmeier has also won every start this year he has gone 93-122 for 1,760 yards and nine touchdowns with four interceptions, Chase Cord has also seen his fair share of snaps.

"I think all of those guys have done really good things throughout the season, but you get to play one guy," said Harsin. "We've played multiple guys and that doesn't mean we won't play multiple in the game."

Boise State hosts Hawaii on the blue in the Mountain West championship game at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, earlier in the season BSU defeated Hawaii 59-37 at home.

The Broncos are also still alive for a Cotton Bowl bid but they need to win while hoping Memphis loses to Cincinnati in their conference championship game at 1:30 p.m.
