HONOLULU -- Joe Southwick threw three touchdowns and backup quarterback Grant Hedrick rushed for another as Boise State easily beat Hawaii 49-14 on Saturday.

Southwick threw for 209 yards, including touchdowns to Matt Millers, Aaron Burks and Holden Huff.

Hedrick replaced Southwick in the fourth quarter, well after the game was decided. He led the Broncos (8-2, 5-1 Mountain West) on a 56-yard drive of more than 9 minutes, capping it off with a 4-yard touchdown run.

Jay Ajayi and Shane Williams-Rhodes each added rushing touchdowns and Boise State's defense also scored on a 25-yard fumble recovery.

Hawaii (1-8, 0-6) had its best play on special teams, with Mike Edwards returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 in the first quarter.

Hawaii Quarterback Sean Schroeder was benched midway through the third quarter. He finished with 100 yards and an interception, while taking four sacks.

With the win, Boise State remains in a three-way tie with San Diego State and Fresno State for first place in the Mountain West Conference.
