Hendricks does it all as Broncos take Humanitarian Bowl

The top-rated quarterback in the country this year wasn't named Weinke -- or Brees or Heupel. It was Boise State's Bart Hendricks, and he put on a show of his own in the Humanitarian Bowl. The senior ran for two TDs, threw a touchdown pass and caught the final TD pass for the Broncos in a 38-23 win over UTEP.

Dec 28 Game Recap: Texas El Paso at Boise St.

Boise State   Texas - El Paso
Team Page

Record: 9-2, 5-0 Big West
Dan Hawkins (first game)
Key players: QB Bart Hendricks (3,364 yards, 35 TDs), RB Brock Forsey (914 yards), S Shaunard Harts (13 tackles-for-loss)
Season summary: Boise is one of several teams so successful this season that their coach is gone. Dirk Koetter left for Arizona State, but Hawkins is essentially the architect of the offense that has turned Hendricks into a throwing machine and Boise into an offensive juggernaut that scored over 40 points seven times and ended the season with back-to-back 66-point efforts.
Team Page

Record: 8-3, 7-1 WAC
Gary Nord (first season)
Key players:
TE Brian Natkin (775 yards), QB Rocky Perez (26 TDs, 6 INTs), DL Menson Holloway (10.5 sacks)
Season summary:
A school-record seven-game win streak highlighted the Miners' rise from the ashes in Nord's first season after a promotion from coordinator. Natkin is an All-America nominee and the closest thing to a star on the team, but the offense is led by the unheralded Perez, who has thrown for an impressive 2,661 yards, 1,110 of them to athletic Lee Mays.
