Since Boise State’s trick-play-infused, overtime win against Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, fans have come to expect a little gadgetry from the Broncos. First-year offensive coordinator Zak Hill described his playcalling last week against New Mexico as “safe,” but that mentality may be about to change. The Broncos rank 108th in total offense (340.7 yards per game) and 60th in scoring (32.0 ppg) heading into Friday’s home game against Virginia (6 p.m., ESPN2).
The Boise State football team hosts its first regular-season game against an Atlantic Coast Conference program when Virginia takes to the blue turf Friday night. While the two schools have played just once before — a 56-14 BSU win at Virginia on Sept. 25, 2015 — coaches on both sides know each other well. Before he took over at Virginia, Bronco Mendenhall was the head coach at BYU for 11 seasons, playing the Broncos four times, including two games at Albertsons Stadium.
Although the Denver Broncos whipped Dallas 42-17 in their Week 2 matchup, former Boise State defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence has emerged as a bright spot on the Cowboys’ defense. Through two games, Lawrence is tied for the NFL lead in sacks with four. He had one all of last season, and his career high was eight in 2015. Lawrence sacked New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning twice in the Cowboys’ season opener Sept. 10 and then hit Dallas QB Trevor Siemian twice Sunday, including a forced fumble.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
