The Boise State Broncos are not going to roll over. That was the lesson learned by the Michigan State Spartans in the second quarter of Friday night's game, as the Broncos put 10 points on the board and will go into the half up on Michigan State by the score of 13-10. The Spartans were on the verge of tying the game or even taking the lead, but quarterback Andrew Maxwell threw an interception at the goal line with six seconds left in the half.
It was Maxwell's third interception of the half, the second of which was returned by Boise State safety Jeremy Ioane for a 43-yard touchdown. It was that score that tied the game at 10, with Boise taking the lead on a field goal with 4:23 left in the half. It could have been worse for the Spartans, but they recovered a fumble on a botched Boise State screen.
The Spartans offense has been carried in the first half by running back Le'Veon Bell, who has 108 yards on 22 carries in the first half. That will likely be a theme as the game continues.
