Boise State offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz says the Bronco offense must sustain their blocks, avoid turnovers and provide better protection for the quarterback if they are going to continue the success of last season.
Boise State is averaging 124.5 rushing yards a game, 224.5 passing yards per game, and 20 points per game. Last season, the Broncos averaged 213.9 rushing yards, 280.4 passing yards and 39.7 points a game.

"There were a lot of opportunities for us to make plays to change the outcome of the game that we didn't make," Drinkwitz said. Specifically, he said "There were several blocks that if we sustain a little bit longer, we score. If we don't throw the ball to the other team, if we pick up the right person in protection...these things have got to be corrected this week and they will be corrected and that's the focus of our team."
Drinkwitz called for better decision-making by starting quarterback Ryan Finley, and talked about the problems that the Idaho State defense (this week's opponent) can cause.
Boise State hosts Idaho State this Friday in Albertsons Stadium. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
