Tyler Shoemaker with 1 catch for 8 yards

We're in the second half of the East-West Shrine Game.  Boise State wide receiver Tyler Shoemaker, who broke the school record for touchdown receptions this year with Kellen Moore throwing to him, has one catch for eight yards.

If they're not careful, they're going to realize that Kellen Moore is a much better quarterback than they think he is.  The current West QB's aren't breaking any records.

Bronco Gymnasts Score Resounding Victory

The Boise State gymnastics team turned in another solid performance in defeating Sacramento State 196.175 to 191.875 in the 10th annual Beauty and the Beast competition in Taco Bell Arena.  And they even brought along the Bronco wrestlers for a win.  The young Bronco wrestling team, which has yet to step into the shoes of graduating seniors who established Boise State as a then-national power, defeated North Dakota State 21-16.
Junior Brittany Potvin-Green had two career bests to lead the Lady Broncos to the impressive victory.  Potvin-Green won he vault with a score of 9.875, placed second on the beam with a 9.80, placed third on the floor with a career-best 9.850 and finished third on the uneven bars with a mark of 9.825.  Potvin-Green thus delighted the crowd of 2,845 and captured her first career all-around title with a sparkling 39.350.

Erica Oswalt finished second in the vault with a career-best 9.850.  Senior Lindsay Kazandjian and freshman Kelsey Morris tied for the top uneven bars score, each notching career-bests of 9.850.  The Broncos' biggest chance for improvement is on the beam, where Potvin-Green and Kazandjian tied for second with 9.80 scores.  The Broncos, as a team, however, scored only 48.775 points.

Amanda Otuafi registered a career-best of her own of 9.90 to win the floor competition. 

Sacramento State earned team scores of 48.625 on vault, 48.150 on bars, 46.625 on beam and 48.475 on floor.

The Broncos travel to Logan next Friday for a tough match against Utah State and Southern Utah.
