BSU outlasts UW to win Maaco Bowl

Southwick escapes Feeney (US PRESSWIRE)

(Las Vegas) (AP) - Little Michael Frisina came up big for Boise State, kicking a 27-yard field goal with 1:16 left to give the No. 20 Broncos a 28-26 victory over Washington in the Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday.

Frisina, who stands 5-foot-5, made the winning kick after Washington had taken the lead for the first time on Travis Coons' 38-yard field goal. Boise State (11-2) sealed the win when Jeremy Ioane intercepted Keith Price's pass as the Huskies (7-6) neared midfield.

It was the third Las Vegas Bowl win in a row for the Broncos, who had to overcome a 205-yard rushing game by Bishop Sankey against a normally stingy Boise State defense.

Frisina was only 12 for 17 on field goals coming into the game, but kicked three of them.
