The 14th ranked Boise State Broncos picked up their 7th straight victory of the 2016 season on the blue last night against BYU.

Even with committing 5 turnovers last night on a short week of practice the team was able to find a way to push on and win.

The turnovers weren’t the only mistakes as Quarterback Brett Rypien threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns.  Kicker Tyler Rausa missed two field goals.  Rypien finished his day throwing for over 300 yards for the third time this season finishing with 442 yards with three touchdowns.  Coach Harsin said in the post game press conference that games like this show the toughness of his team

“We are 7-0 and we have found a way to win.  Sometimes you don't always know why but sometimes there is something special about a football team.  You know what they stayed together the whole time.  We could have folded and we didn’t and to me that's the credit to the leadership of this team, the coaches, and everybody together and finding a way to win,” said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.
