                   === Boise State edges out Fresno State ===
 
 Boise,  ID  (Sports Network) -  D.J. Harper carried the  ball 21 times for 122
 yards  and  a touchdown as  No. 24 Boise State  downed Fresno State, 20-10, on
 Saturday.
 
 Joe  Southwick  was 11-for-22  passing  for  113  yards  with a  touchdown  to
 Geraldo  Boldewijn, who  had three catches for 37 yards in helping the Broncos
 (5-1,  2-0 MWC)  to its fifth straight victory after falling to Michigan State
 in the season opener.
 
 "The  running game  was  great; we  ran  for a  lot of  yards,  I know  that,"
 Southwick  remarked.  "We were  really close in  the passing game  in a lot of
 things."
 
 Derek  Carr  completed 29-of-43 passes  for 266  yards and a touchdown, Robbie
 Rouse  rushed  for 77 yards and  also caught nine  passes for 68 yards for the
 Bulldogs  (4-3,  2-1), who  have  dropped  11  straight games  against  ranked
 opponents dating back to 2008.
 
 "You  have to  give  Boise  State credit,"  Fresno  State  coach Tim  DeRuyter
 admitted.  "They  outplayed us,  they outcoached  us, they out-physicalled us,
 they  played smarter and they were more composed. That comes from coaching. We
 have to do a better job."
 
 Boise  State took a 7-0 lead with just over three minutes to play in the first
 when Southwick connected with Boldewijn for a 10-yard touchdown pass.
 
 Earlier  in  the  drive  Southwick  found  Aaron  Burks  for  a  25-yard  pass
 to  put  the ball  in Fresno State  territory before getting  on the board six
 plays later.
 
 After  forcing  a three-and-out, the  Broncos extended their advantage to 10-0
 when  Michael Frisina  split the uprights from  19 yards out to cap a 10-play,
 62-yard march.
 
 Harper's  28-yard  touchdown scamper with 2:10  to play in the first half gave
 Boise  a commanding 17-0  lead. Harper ran the ball four times for 58 yards on
 the drive.
 
 Fresno  State finally  got on  the board  in the  third quarter  after Quentin
 Breshears  booted a 39-yarder after a 12-play drive stalled at the Boise State
 22.
 
 After trading punts, the Broncos used a 19-yard Frisina field goal to push its
 cushion to 20-3.
 
 The  Bulldogs were  able to pull within  20-10 with 2:15 to play in the fourth
 when  Carr connected with Davante Adams for a 3-yard touchdown pass, but Boise
 picked up a pair of first downs on its following possession to ice the win.
 
                                   Game Notes
