Draft Scout Joe Southwick News
10/21/13 - The Broncos lost their offensive leader on their first play from scrimmage in the 34-17 victory over Nevada when quarterback Joe Southwick suffered a broken ankle while scrambling. Without Southwick, who was 15-4 as the starter, Boise State turned to junior Grant Hedrick. - Brian Murphy, The Idaho Statesman
10/13/13 - Joe Southwick passed for a career high 335 yards and two touchdowns on 30-of-44 passing as Boise State topped Utah State 34-23 Saturday night. Shane Williams-Rhodes caught 13 of Southwick's passes for 150 yards and a touchdown while running back Jay Ajayi added 109 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. The Broncos (4-2, 2-1 Mountain West) gained 26 first downs to USU's 16 in the game and gained 447 yards of total offense.
Junior Craig Harrison made his first start at quarterback for Utah State (3-4, 2-1 Mountain West) after Chuckie Keeton, three-year starter for the Aggies, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of a loss to BYU last week. Harrison went 7 of 17 for 105 yards and rushed for 36 yards. Freshman Darell Garretson replaced Harrison with 9:23 to play in the third quarter and went 9 of 14 for 116 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. - AP Sports
09/29/13 - Joe Southwick threw for 268 yards and three touchdowns and Jay Ajayi rushed for 83 yards and another touchdown to help Boise State get back on track with a 60-7 victory over Southern Mississippi Saturday night. The Broncos also got help from special teams, which blocked two field goals and forced a fumble on a punt return, and a defense that rebounded after getting torched a week ago in a 41-40 loss against longtime rival Fresno State.
The offense for Boise State (3-2, 1-1 Mountain West Conference) started slowly, going three-and-out on its first two possessions. But Southwick, with the help of some big runs by Aaron Baltazar and Jay Ajayi, got things rolling, putting up points on nine of their next 10 possessions en route to the most lopsided of Boise State's four straight victories over Southern Miss since 2007. Southwick was sharp again, completing 19 of 23 passes before heading to the bench in the third quarter. He threw touchdown passes of 42, 18 and 14 yards and his 52-yarder to Geraldo Boldewijn set up Ajayi's 4-yard TD run just before the half. - AP Sports
09/13/13 - The Broncos went from no touchdowns against Washington to nine against UT Martin (eight on offense). The next couple weeks, against Air Force and Boise State, should provide a better gauge of which is the true offense. The defense was much-improved against UT Martin but still had issues with missed tackles.
GAME PREVIEW: vs. Air Force, Friday. This is a must-win game in the Mountain Division for Boise State, which still has to play at Fresno State and at Utah State in the next month. The Broncos have only faced the Falcons once, two years ago. That was one of the program's most talented defenses and it found few answers to the Air Force offense. - The Sports Xchange
09/13/13 - Scouting the Boise State passing game: Quarterback Joe Southwick was unable to produce big plays in the pass game in the opener. He came back with a bunch of them against UT Martin - TDs covering 54 and 30 yards and a couple pass-interference calls on deep balls. Southwick threw five TD passes and topped 200 in quarterback rating points after falling below 100 in the opener. - The Sports Xchange
