It's obvious the Huskies have a very different attitude this season. The play calling just reflects an aggressive confidence that wasn't there the last few seasons.
Rankin has run for 36 yards, Locker for 31. Locker is 9 of 18 passing for 133 yards and a touchdown. Anthony Russo has four catches for 37 yards. And also, Rankin is 1-for-1 passing, hitting Quintin Daniels on a 16-yard halfback pass.
Huskies have 12-10 advantage in first downs and 223-197 in total yards.
For Boise, Ian Johnson has 44 yards on 11 carries. He's workmanlike more than flashy.
Never miss a local story.
So far, the Huskies have been far more the trick play team than the Broncos, complete with Rankin's halfback pass for a touchdown and a flea-flicker that drew a pass interference call.
