Trailing by 39 points early in the third quarter to Boise State, drug Hawaii football coach Nick Rolovich had enough.

Maintenance crew members were asked to remove the team’s benches and take them out of Aloha Stadium, order preventing the Warriors from being able to sit. It worked in that they outscored Boise State the rest of the way, sales but a minor victory it was.

On the other sideline, sitting, standing, passing, running, catching, the No. 22 Broncos were plenty comfortable in a 52-16 Mountain West rout Saturday in their most dominant effort of the season.

“We came out, started fast as we usually do, but the big thing for us was to play a good four quarters,” sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien said. “Well, for the starters, three quarters tonight.”

It was the sort of smooth win that had evaded Boise State (9-1, 5-1 Mountain West) most of the season. It reached a season-high in points and racked up a season-best 603 yards of offense. The Broncos’ starting offense was done for the night after Rypien’s 44-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck put them up 52-6 with 14:51 to play.
