Boise State is hanging on to a one-point lead over Washington at halftime of the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

The Boise St. Broncos have an 18-17 lead over the Washington Huskies at the end of the first half of play at the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

The Broncos struck first, as Michael Frisina hit a 34-yard field goal at with 10:27 to play in the first quarter. Washington answered back with a field goal of its own, a 26-yard kick by Travis Coons following a five-play, 48-yard drive by the Huskies. Boise State closed the first quarter with a 16-yard touchdown pass to Geraldo Boldewijn to pull ahead 9-3 after Frisina's extra point attempt was blocked.

Frisina opened the scoring in the second quarter as well, drilling a 30-yard attempt to give the Broncos a nine-point lead with nine minutes to play in the half.

Boise State broke out its celebrated trick-playbook on the next drive when wide receiver Chris Potter hauled in a lateral pass and connected with tight end Holden Huff for a 34-yard touchdown.

Washington counterpunched twice on a 26-yard touchdown scamper by running back Bishop Sankey and a 7-yard run by quarterback Keith Price to make the score 18-17 at the half. Sankey had a huge first half, rushing 16 times for 129 yards and one touchdown.
