Boise State throttles Nevada, 34-17

Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Boise State running back Jay Ajayi ran for a
career-high 222 yards on 24 carries with three touchdowns to
lead the Broncos to a 34-17 win over Nevada.

Backup quarterback Grant Hedrick threw for 150 yards and ran for
115 more.

Hedrick, a junior who had only attempted 36 passes in his
career, took over when starting quarterback Joe Southwick
injured his right foot on the Broncos' first offensive play from
scrimmage. He finished 18-of-21 passing. He is also the first
Bronco quarterback to rush for over 100 yards since Jared
Zabranski rushed for 123 against Hawaii in 2004.

Boise State (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West) won its eighth straight
game at home against Nevada.

Nevada (3-4, 2-2), which led at halftime against Boise State for
the first time since 1997, lost its fifth straight on the road
dating back to last season.

Boise State's defense, which yielded 246 yards of offense in the
first half, held Nevada to 127 yards in the second half.

Trailing 17-7 at halftime, the Boise State offense also found
its rhythm in the second half.

On their first possession of the second half, the Broncos drove
64 yards in eight plays, scoring on a 4-yard touchdown run by
Ajayi. A missed extra point left Nevada with a 17-13 lead.

On Boise State's next possession, Ajayi raced 71 yards for a
touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. With the extra
point, Boise State took its first lead at 20-17 with 9:31 left
in the third quarter.

Boise State added two more touchdowns to secure the victory.

Nevada receiver Brandon Wimberly led the Wolfpack with 11
catches for 121 yards. However, his streak of five straight
games with a touchdown reception was snapped.
