Broncos Illustrated brings you game photos from the Broncos 42-0 victory over UT-Martin.


CommUniverCity’s tent pavilions drew thousands to the game well in advance of kickoff.


Head coach Gary Darnell leads the Broncos onto the field to begin the 2004 season.


WMU linebacker Mike Giorgianni is hidden from view as Kevin Ford (9) and Nick Melcher (35) usher him into the end zone after his 1st quarter interception.

Blayne Baggett earned his first career start versus UT-Martin and responded with three touchdown passes; Mark Ottney (61) and Robbie Krutilla (78) provide protection.

UT-Martin didn’t roll over for the Broncos, keeping pressure on Baggett throughout the game.


Running back Lawrence Cannon gets his first career carries in the second half, riding the wave plowed by Brandon James (71) and Mike Onaga (89).


There was plenty to cheer about at Waldo Stadium, where the Broncos scored 14 1st quarter points before the offense snapped the ball.


The Skyhawks best chance for scoring came in the 3rd quarter when they missed a 25-yard field goal attempt. Jimmy Vincent (5) applies pressure from the outside.


The going was never easy for UT-Martin which, despite winning the time of possession battle, was shutout against WMU.


A key play in the first half brings WMU students to their feet in support of the Broncos.


Justin LeMay can barely contain his excitement after his first career touchdown in the second quarter.


Teacher and pupil talk tactics when secondary coach Van Malone and cornerback Jimmy Vincent have a chalk-talk on the Bronco sidelines.


The play of the offensive line is expected to be a key to a successful season. Guard Dominic Moran (72) and tackle Kyle Ras (79) block for Trovon Riley (hidden) while under the watchful gaze of offensive line coach Mike Cummings (white shirt).


True freshman Mike Onaga acted like he planned to make catching touchdown passes a habit after his first career reception–and touchdown–in the third quarter.


It appears rising tuition and fees left these Bronco fans with few wardrobe options, likely delighting others in the stadium.
