Boise State QB Bachmeier sidelined vs. Air Force

Boise State sophomore quarterback Hank Bachmeier didn’t travel with the team and missed Saturday’s road game at Air Force.

Sophomore starting safety JL Skinner also missed the Mountain West contest.

No. 25 Boise State reportedly confirmed one player missed the game due to a positive COVID-19 test but didn’t reveal the identity.

Transfer Jack Sears, a former Southern California starter, took Bachmeier’s place. Sears threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to senior receiver CT Thomas on the game’s first offensive play.

Sears, a fourth-year junior, started one game for USC. He completed 20 of 28 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during a 38-35 loss to Arizona State on Oct. 27, 2018.

Air Force sophomore quarterback Haaziq Daniels departed the game in the first quarter with an injury. Junior Warren Bryan replaced him.
