After last night’s game, the Broncos remain undefeated in the Mountain Division.

The game didn’t start exactly how Head Coach Bryan Harsin would have wanted, with just three points and 118 yards in the first half. After the slow first half, the team came alive.

Backup quarterback Montell Cozart was almost perfect through the air. Cozart had 6-for-7 passing for 73 yards and a touchdown.

When Cozart transferred to Boise State from Kansas for his final season, he was hoping to have fun and help the Broncos win some ball games, but now he’s doing far more than that.

"I remember fall camp we sat down here as seniors and I sat in front of the full team coaches media guys, everybody, the whole team was in here and I told them I was willing to do whatever it takes to help our offense," said Quarterback Montell Cozart.

Cozart gave the team three touchdowns, two with his feet and one passing. It’s the first time in his career that he’s had a two rushing touchdown night. Cozart also had more time on the field than the starter, Brett Rypien.  Rypien finished the game with over 100 yards passing and no scores.

"He has a package of plays, Brett has a package of plays, really we have a package of plays for everybody out there.  For us to be effective and I think hard to prepare for you are able to have Montell in there and doing something different things," said Head Coach Bryan Harsin.

The Broncos defense continues to impress, they held Wyoming to 22 total yards in the final quarter, and haven’t allowed an opposing player to rush for 100 yards in a game this season.
