Bronco Secondary Will Be Contending With 19 Feet of Height In Game With BYU Cougars

All week long, Boise State cornerbacks Donte Deayon and Jonathan Moxey have heard how they won't be able to measure up against the taller BYU Receivers. Now is their chance to do something about it.

In just hours, Boise State cornerback Jonathan Moxey and his counterpart Donte Deayon will face BYU and their trio of tall, talented receivers.  Seniors Mitch Matthews (6'6"), Terenn Houk (6-5), and Nick Kurtz (6-5) give freshman Cougar quarterback Tanner Mangum big targets to throw to.  And if one listens to the experts, the trio presents big matchup problems for Deayon and Moxey.

That is something the two Bronco cornerbacks have heard all their life--they're not tall enough to compete, they're not tall enough for a Pac-12 school to be interested in them, and they're not tall enough to go up and deny the BYU receivers the ball.

Moxey relishes proving the critics and the naysayers wrong.  He'll get another chance to do that tonight when Boise State meets the Cougars in Provo, Utah--kickoff is 8:15 p.m.
