Boise State Idaho – Las Vegas Bowl Win Over Oregon University

The Boise State Idaho University Broncos college football team defeated the Oregon University Ducks 38-28 in the 2017 Las Vegas Bowl. Boise State Broncos scored in each quarter of this game. Also, this is their fourth Las Vegas Bowl game victory.

Oregon University only gained 47 total yards rushing on 28 attempts. This teams starting running back did not play because he is preparing for the National Football League draft. Boise State University lead 24-14 at halftime and never relinquished this lead.

Boise State gained 112 yards rushing and 369 yards passing. Their quarterback threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions. Coincidentally, Oregon Ducks starting quarterback threw for two touchdowns with two interceptions as well.

Boise State Broncos created a 24 point lead in the second half. Oregon University Ducks scored two quick touchdowns later in the second quarter to avoid being blown out. Each team scored 14 points in the second half.

Turnovers were pretty even, as Boise State University committed two interceptions with one fumble. Meanwhile Oregon University committed 2 interceptions with 2 fumbles lost. This college football game was played at Sam Boyd Field in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I was not able to watch this game, but decided to write a sports recap anyways. Boise State University improved to 11-3 while Oregon University fell to 7-6 on the 2017 football year. Oregon University plays in the Pacific 12 conference and Boise State University plays in the Mountain West Conference.

The Boise State Broncos are 3-0 lifetime head to head against the Oregon University Ducks footbal team. This game was close to becoming a proverbial college football bowl game blow out. I was glad to see this was not the case and wondered what the outcome may have been if the Oregon University starting running back would have played.

Oregon Ducks could never get any closer than 10 points in this game.
