Well… that was interesting. The Huskies today looked amazing at points, but they also looked God awful at other, as they have all year. They finish the 2012 season with a 7-6 record, but by all means should have finished 9-4 after losing the last 2 games against WSU in the apple cup, and Boise State this afternoon 28-26.
First I must give credit where credit is due to Boise State. They built a gameplan that attacked the Husky secondary which has been pretty damn good all year. Joe Southwick was responsible for 264 of Boise State’s 298 passing yards and 2 TDs. But the other 34 yards came from a Boise State on a Holden Huff WR throwback TD that put Boise up 18-3 with 5 and a half minutes left in the first half.
At that point it appeared Boise State would run away with it, but then Bishop Sankey took over. He scored and a 26 yard toss play following a 39 yard completion to Kasen Williams. Stankey finished the day with 205 yards on 30 carries and a TD, along with 6 catches for 74 yards. One catch went for 42 yards on the following Husky possession that lead to a 7 yard Keith Price TD run to cut the deficit to 18-17 at the Half.
Boise State scored on their first possession of second half to make it 25-17 on a Southwick 1 yard TD pass to Huff. The Huskies answered however on the ensuing possession on a 6 yard TD pass to ASJ, and after missing the 2 point conversion made it 25-23.
The game came down to the final possession however. Following a Travis Coons 38 yard field goal that gave the Huskies they’re first lead of the day at 26-25, special teams and defense let the Huskies down. After a big kickoff return and a clock chewing drive lead to a Boise State field goal by Michael Frisina from 27 yards out to regain the lead 28-26.
But the Huskies still had a chance… Until Keith Price threw his second pick of the day with 23 seconds left securing a Boise State victory and a disappointing end of the season for the Huskies.
