The Boise State spring game is in the books with the offense putting on a show, racking up 49 points on the defense which was good enough to walk home with the win and a steak.

The offense which struggled in the team's first scrimmage last week turned it up a notch even building a 20-point advantage going into the fourth quarter.

“We’re coming out here letting these guys play its lets these guys compete. It was good to see the offense get out there and move the ball down the field get some explosive plays in and have a few touchdowns.” Said head coach Bryan Harsin.

Quarterback Brett Rypien once again showed why he should be leading the troops into battle this fall having two touchdowns and throwing over 230 yards and connecting on 20-of-37 of his passes.

“Really what I was focusing on was getting myself better every single day and getting my guys around me better every single day and I think we accomplished that. I feel like if you go back from day one to where we were now we got better for sure. We still have a lot to work on this summer.” Said sophomore Brett Rypien.

Sophomore wide receiver Sean Modster played in place of seniors Thomas Sperbeck and Chaz Anderson who were not suited up. Modster was on the end of both of those touchdown passes which could be a new duo threat come fall.

“As a group, we were short players so a lot of people had to step up and I had some opportunities today to make plays, Rypien got me the ball and I scored.” Said, sophomore Sean Modster.

“When you don't have a Thomas Sperbeck out there or a Chaz Anderson out there, you let these other guys do some of those things.” Said Harsin

Boise State will have one more practice this Monday giving Coach Harsin one last look at his team heading into the summer break.  We are just 145 days until kickoff against Louisiana-Lafayette so let the countdown begin.
