Hank Bachmeier on Freshman of The Year Watch List
Boise State quarterback Hank Bachmeier was named to the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Midseason Watch List for the Freshman All-America Team and the Shaun Alexander/Stand Together Freshman of the Year Award, the organization announced Thursday.
Bachmeier started the first six games of the season for the Broncos (6-1, 3-0 MW), before missing Oct. 19's contest at BYU due to injury. Boise State got off to a 6-0 start with Bachmeier under center, including a season-opening 36-31 victory at Florida State in which the Murrieta, Calif., native went 30-for-51 for 407 yards and a touchdown, leading a Bronco comeback from an 18-point deficit.
On the year, Bachmeier has completed 61.9 percent of his passes (109-for-176) for 1,547 yards and nine touchdowns, against just three interceptions.
Boise State resumes Mountain West play Nov. 2 at San Jose State. That contest is slated for an 8:30 p.m. kickoff on CBS Sports Network.
