Draft Scout Brett Rypien News
01/29/19 - Brett Rypien displayed some of his pedigree in the East-West Shrine Game. Rypien and Easton Stick each threw a touchdown pass to help the West beat the East 21-17 on Saturday. Rypien, a Boise State product and nephew of Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien, was 10 of 14 for 134 yards. Scouts from a number of NFL teams talked with Rypien during a week of workouts preceding the game. "Overall it was a great week," Rypien said. "I thought I came down here and did what I needed to do as far as what I wanted to show the scouts."
Stick, from North Dakota State, completed 5 of 8 passes for 51 yards. Purdue's David Blough had two touchdowns and 149 yards on 10-of-15 passing. "It was a good day," Blough said. "I think we had a good opportunity to showcase what I can do, so that was special. I'm thankful for it all and I'm just glad I got to be a part of." Rypien connected on a 22-yard scoring strike with LSU's Nick Brossette during the first drive of the game. "Thought I was pretty accurate with the ball for the most part," Rypien said. - AP College Football
11/10/18 - Brett Rypien threw for 269 yards and Alexander Mattison rushed for 143 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead Boise State to a 24-17 upset over No. 16 Fresno State on Friday night. Boise State (8-2, 5-1 Mountain West), which hasn't lost to Fresno State at home since 1984, beat a ranked team for the first time in November in program history to keep its conference title aspirations alive. Fresno State (8-2, 5-1) entered the game as the nation's No. 2 scoring defense and had only given up three touchdowns in conference play before facing the Broncos. Rypien, who became the Mountain West's all-time passing leader in both yards and receptions, hit Khalil Shakir in stride on a 49-yard scoring strike with 9:22 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Broncos a 24-17 lead. Leading 10-3 at halftime, Fresno State appeared to take control of the game by driving 75 yards on the opening possession of the second half and scoring on a 1-yard run by Ronnie Rivers for a 17-3 advantage. But Boise State stormed back, scoring on consecutive possessions on a pair of short runs by Mattison to knot the score at 17. - AP College Football
11/04/18 - Brett Rypien threw for 214 yards and a touchdown and the Boise State defense made a last-minute goal line stand as the Broncos held off upset-minded BYU 21-16 on Saturday night. Boise State (7-2), which has now won three straight against the Cougars, leaned heavily on its defense to secure the victory. The Broncos registered seven sacks and nine tackles for loss. BYU (4-5), which has never won in five tries in Boise, lost for the third time this season in a game decided by a touchdown or less.
Boise State led 14-6 at halftime before trading touchdowns with the Cougars in the third quarter. But BYU made things interesting after a 41-yard field goal by Skyler Southam with 4:35 left cut the Boise State lead to 21-16. After the Cougars defense forced a Boise State punt with 2:05 remaining, Zach Wilson led the Cougars from their own 13 to the Boise State 2 with seven seconds remaining. However, on the final play, Tyson Maeva and Scale Igiehon combined for a sack on Wilson, preserving the victory. - AP College Football
10/20/18 - Brett Rypien threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns to lead Boise State over Colorado State 56-28 on Friday night. Boise State (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West), which had to rally from a 35-10 halftime deficit last season against the Rams, flipped the script this time in racing out to a 35-7 halftime lead and never looked back. Colorado State (3-5, 2-2) was its own worst enemy, turning the ball over three times and giving up a wild punt return for a touchdown. K.J. Carta-Samuels was 19-of-30 passing for 238 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. In the first half, the Broncos' offense was so efficient that the only third down it failed to convert occurred when Rypien stumbled over his own feet after taking a snap under center. But that was about the only miscue he had in finishing with the same number of touchdowns as incompletions (22 of 26 passing). - AP College Football
09/30/18 - Playing in hazy conditions caused by smoke from a forest fire burning the area, Boise State's Brett Rypien burned another defense to record his fourth consecutive 300-yard passing game this season. Rypien completed 28 of 42 pass attempts for two touchdowns and 342 yards in leading the Broncos over Wyoming 34-14 on Saturday. Boise State (3-1, 1-0 Mountain West Conference) scored on four of their first six possessions in the first half to gain a 24-0 halftime advantage and were never threatened the rest of the game.
Rypien entered the game as Boise State's career leader in 300-yard games and now has 18. Also, he has yet to throw an interception this season after four games, which is a school record. "Once we realized that we could run by them a little bit, on the outside there, we started to get some one-on-one opportunities, we took advantage of them and then it kind of opened things up," Rypien said. Broncos coach Bryan Harsin credited Rypien's success to how he prepares before each game. "He's very focused, very intentional about what he does, and I think it shows up on the field," Harsin said. "He's as consistent week to week as I've been around." - AP College Football
