Boise State Blasts Utah of the Pac-12 80-61

Two years ago, the Pac-12 chose Utah for expansion over Boise State.  Yet it is now obvious that they made the wrong choice as Boise State has defeated Utah in nearly every sport since then.  

Tonight Leon Rice's new-look basketball team put the metal down 80-61 for an impressive win over the Utes in Taco Bell Arena.  Anthony Drmic poured in 23 points and Ryan Watkins and Drew Wiley had 11 each as Boise State scored the biggest win over a Pac-12 Conference team in school history.  The previous mark was 76-65 over Oregon State in 1977.

Boise State advanced to 2-0 in what was supposed to be a rebuilding season.  The Broncos host Cal State Northridge this Saturday at 3 p.m. in the Arena.
