qualcomm stadium flooding:-Boise State Broncos vs. Utah results and Qualcomm Stadium flooding, report. Broncos dominate Utah 26-3
Boise State Broncos defeat Utah for 26-3 in the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas. The No.10 Broncos after missing a handful of opportunities in the first quarter dominated No.20 Utah in the rest part of the game. Utah were quite unfortunate to exploit from the first quarter shoddiness of their opponents in the game.
Utah, about to head for the Pac-12 next year, are leaving the Mountain West Conference with their first-season defeat to the Broncos. Kellen Moore and Doug Martin took out splendid show in the game to ensure the loss of Utah before leaving for the Pac-12.
Moore threw for 318 yards and two touchdowns and Martin threw in 147 yards and a touchdown being two aggressive players of the Broncos in the game. Anyway, for the first 21 minutes of the game, Boise State could not make any movement in the scoreboard. When the first quarter ended, it looked like that the Broncos would be the wrong side in the game.
However, they came back into the game quite dramatically from the brink of a disaster. In fact, even after putting the Broncos (12-2) scoreless whole in the first quarter, Utah (10-3) could not do anything against them. Utah’s players like senior quarterback Terrance Cain struggled in the game and could not find a flow.
In the later stage of the game, Boise State made a wonderful return and its Martin established a MAACO Bowl Las Vegas record with an 84-yard run. It was enough to beat Utah heavy-handedly in the game.
Meanwhile there is unprecedented flooding in many parts of California that hasn't spared even sporting facilities. A report in Los Angeles Times says, "Conditions were tough in San Diego County, where media reports say that SeaWorld was shut down and rains flooded the Qualcomm Stadium football field a day before the Poinsettia Bowl. TV footage showed a dramatic rescue of guests at a Mission Valley hotel where floodwaters were approaching the tops of car roofs"
