Brennan highlights 1st quarter stats

HONOLULU, HI
To start the game, Boise State won the coin toss and elected to receive the ball. In front of a roaring, packed house the Warrior defense came out hitting hard and Boise State senior Tad Miller felt the effects, going to the sideline with an injury just minutes into the game.

A combination of rushing and receiving got the Broncos to the Warrior 30-yard line before a 3rd down and 20 pass was intercepted by UH senior Jacob Patek, who returned the ball for 17 yards. The Hawaii offense took the field with just under seven minutes remaining in the first period, but failed to convert.

Boise State senior running back Ian Johnson broke multiple tackles to score on a 50-yard run for the first points of the game, giving the Broncos the 7-0 lead.

The Warriors responded on the following possession, as a 41-yard pass from Colt Brennan to senior wide receiver C.J. Hawthorne set up a touchdown pass to junior Ryan Grice-Mullins. With the touchdown, Brennan became the NCAA'a new all-time passing touchdowns leader (122), surpassing Ty Detmer's record of 121. In addition, Brennan set new NCAA records in touchdowns responsible for with 136 and points responsible for with 826.
