Arron Mosby (Sanger grad) was ejected for targeting on Boise State's opening series. The two teams would trade field position before Broncos senior quarterback Brett Rypien fumbled the ball and the Bulldogs recovered at the Broncos 20 yard line. On the ensuing Bulldogs drive Dinuba grad Marcus McMaryion found Michiah Quick (Central HS) for a 15 yard touchdown to open the scoring.

The Broncos would answer on their ensuing drive. Rypien's throw on 3rd down from the 10 yard line went through the hands of Jaron Bryant and Sean Modster took advantage with a catch that tied the game at 7.
Unbelievable. Interception goes through the hands of Jaron Bryant--falls in the hands of a Boise State receiver who somehow keeps his feet in bounds for a TD. Tie game. @ABC30— Stephen Hicks (@StephenABC30) December 2, 2018
The second quarter saw the rain turn into snow flurries as snow began to stick on the blue field. Following another completion from McMaryion to Quick the former Grizzly fumbled setting up a turnover on downs at the 23.
Freshman Asa Fuller hit a 44 yard field goal through the snow to give the Bulldogs a 10-7 lead at the break. Fuller would hit another from 38 yards to make it a 13-7 FS lead.
Alexander Mattison carried the ball 36 times for 181 yards but none was bigger than his 34 yard run to tie the game 13-13 with 8:01 to play in the game. FS senior from Toronto Matt Boateng blocked the extra point that would have given the Broncos the lead.
"It looked like we were going there tonight. We were ahead again and they came back like they do. We were resilient. Defense played really well. We made some mistakes. We had too many turnovers but our kids had a not be denied attitude tonight," said Coach Jeff Tedford.
