Feature on how Boise State wants to make a statement against UH

AO = Arbiter Online (BSU’s student newspaper)

About their respect for UH, BSU head coach Chris Petersen said:
“They are the WAC champs, they went into Fresno and beat them right away. They have some weapons, no question about it.” (AO)

Putting the Southern Mississippi game behind him and focusing on UH, Petersen said:
“I am already past that game, we’re onto Hawai’i full speed. They have a lot of playmakers who are really starting to come on.” (AO)

About Inoke, Petersen said:
“This guy is a true passer who can run as well as anyone we’ve seen all year. He brings another dimension to the run-and-shoot offense that could cause us problems.” (AO)

About how he isn’t used to playing against the WAC champions, senior LB Kyle Gingg said:
“It’s weird to think that the WAC champs are coming into our house. We’re used to being WAC champs. It kind of pisses me off. We’re fired up, we’re ready to play.” (AO)

AO Note: “More bad news came for the offense when it learned standout sophomore wide receiver Titus Young would be suspended for three games before heading to Hattiesburg, Miss. This gave the other wide receivers a chance to shine in the game against Southern Miss. Wide receiver Jeremy Childs led all receivers with 10 catches for 92 yards and a touchdown, while sophomore Austin Pettis finished the night with 30 yards receiving with two touchdown catches.”

About WR Austin Pettis, Petersen said:
“He [Pettis] is a big tall guy that you can throw it up to, and really shines in one-on-one matchups. We hope he can keep doing these things, we know he’s a great player.” (AO)

About UH’s win at Aloha Stadium last year, Petersen said:
“There was more energy and passion in that stadium than ever. We would really like to return the favor.” (AO)
