Boise State had a costly 34-17 win over Nevada on Saturday, as quarterback Joe Southwick suffered a broken ankle in the first quarter and is out indefinitely.

In his absence, backup Grant Hedrick filled in admirably, completing 18 of 21 passes for 150 yards, while rushing for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Hedrick has thrown 57 passes in his Boise State career, but Saturday’s game against Nevada was his first extended action.

Southwick could return later this season, but his comeback could largely depend on what bowl Boise State plays in.
