BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Boise State scored on its first offensive
play Saturday and never looked back in a 42-14 victory over
Colorado State.



Senior D.J. Harper went untouched on an 80-yard touchdown run,
and the Broncos (9-2, 6-1 Mountain West) scored on five of their
six first-half possessions against the Rams (3-8, 2-5) to keep
their conference title hopes alive. Boise State entered the day
tied with Fresno State and San Diego State in the Mountain West.



Harper, a sixth-year senior playing in the final home game of
his career, finished with 107 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Quarterback Joe Southwick completed 17-of-20 passes for 216
yards and two touchdowns in a little more than one half of
action. He connected with Matt Miller (5 yards) and Holden Huff
(18 yards) for first-half touchdown passes.



Senior receiver Chris Potter had a 12-yard touchdown run out of
the Wildcat formation for the Broncos, which led 35-0 at
halftime. It marked the sixth time this season that Boise State
held its opponent scoreless in the first half.



Colorado State trailed 42-0 when it finally scored on a
career-long 72-yard run by Chris Nwoke with 2:09 in the third
quarter. Nwoke finished with a game-high 119 yards on 10
carries. The Rams managed only 229 total yards and committed
three turnovers in their last chance to win a road game this
season. Colorado State is 0-5 in away games this season.



Colorado State got its final score on a 30-yard pass from Conner
Smith to Marquise Law with 4:09 left. It was just the third
passing touchdown yielded by Boise State this season.



Backup quarterback Grant Hedrick had a 1-yard touchdown run for
the Broncos, which wound up with 503 yards, their most this
season since rolling up 599 against Miami (Ohio) on Sept. 15.
