The loss to Louisiana State in Week 11 did not send the Boise State Broncos spiraling out of control. Even though their goal of playing in the SEC Championship Game in their first SEC Fantasy Football season was dashed by the Tigers, the Broncos came out full force against the University of Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.
The vaunted Tide defense proved no match for Kellen Moore as he repeatedly nickel and dimed the Alabama defense up the middle the entire game. Equally impressive was the Alabama rushing attack, which accounted for all of the Crimson Tides' points.
The two offenses went toe-to-toe for three-and-a-half quarters until a Boise score with under five minutes to play forced Alabama away from its running attack and they simply could not move the ball through the air.
The Broncos took the ball back over on downs and after securing one first down, they were able to run out the clock for the win.
Boise State currently holds a 8-2 (6-2 SEC) record and will face South Carolina this Saturday to wrap up their season.
