HOUSTON (AP) — Boise State’s Chris Petersen has won the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award, the second time in four years he’s earned the honor recognizing the nation’s best coach.

Petersen was honored with the award on Thursday night

The Broncos finished a 14-0 season with a 17-10 win over previously unbeaten TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. Boise State went undefeated through the regular season for the third time in Petersen’s four years.

Petersen also won the Bryant award in 2006, after the Broncos completed another perfect season with a 43-42 win over Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. The Broncos are 49-4 under Petersen, including a 31-1 record in the Western Athletic Conference.
