Overall Game Grade: B-
Jeremy Ioane came up with the biggest play of the game as he intercepted a pass with less than a minute to go to seal the Broncos' victory. Had Ioane not jumped the route, Washington likely would have made a reception and put itself in position to kick a game-winning field goal.
Darian Thompson finished second on the team with nine tackles, while Corey Bell had eight.
While Boise State came into the game ranked in the top 10 in the country in passing yards allowed per game, the 242 passing yards allowed wasn't exactly what they were looking for.
Petersen expects more out of his group.
With that said, when it came time for a big play to be made, it was the secondary that stepped up to do so.
