    Rypien leads Boise State past No. 16 Fresno State 24-17

    Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien etched his name in the Mountain West record books as the conference's all-time leading passer in both yards and completions. But the pro-style passer needed his feet almost as much as his arm to beat the nation's second-best scoring defense.

    Rypien engineered a fourth-quarter comeback, finishing with 269 yards passing with a touchdown and one interception, along with 30 yards rushing on eight carries that included scrambles for three first downs, in leading Boise State to a 24-17 upset over No. 16 Fresno State on Friday night.

    Modster has 3 TD catches, No. 23 Broncos top N. Mexico 45-14

    Any talk of a trap game did not get much attention from No. 23 Boise State in practice this week.

    The Broncos went out and played against a struggling New Mexico team as if a huge game was not looming on their schedule next week against No. 14 Utah State.

    "This week, it was all about New Mexico," Broncos coach Bryan Harsin said. "We can control how we play the game and we did."

    Sean Modster caught a career-best three touchdowns passes to lead Boise State to a 45-14 victory over New Mexico on Friday night.

    No. 14 Utah State survives on Colorado State penalty

    For a few moments, Colorado State lived every underdog's dream finish. The winning score even went up -- briefly -- on the scoreboard only to be wiped out by reality.

    Collin Hill's apparent 34-yard touchdown pass to Preston Williamswith no time left was negated by penalty, allowing No. 14 Utah State to escape with a 29-24 victory Saturday in a wild, stunning finish to a game played in snow and freezing rain.

    Fagan rushes for 260, Air Force beats Colorado State 27-19

    Cole Fagan 's Thanksgiving feast consisted of yards and carries.

    Turns out, the junior fullback had quite the appetite.

    Fagan rushed for 260 yards, the third-most in Air Force history, and linebacker Kyle Floyd thwarted a late drive with an interception to help the Falcons hold off Colorado State 27-19 on Thurs

    No. 24 Fresno State outlasts No. 19 Boise State in snow

    Ronnie Rivers didn't find many open holes while running the ball for Fresno State in a snowy Mountain West championship game.

    And he didn't have one on his final run Saturday night. But it didn't matter.

    Rivers took an option pitch and shredded a tackler before scampering into the end zone to give No. 24 Fresno State a 19-16 overtime victory over No. 19 Boise State for the Bulldogs' first conference title since 2013.

    Utah State routs North Texas 52-13 in New Mexico Bowl

    Utah State walked into the New Mexico Bowl with one of its best records in school history but uncertainty. Its head coach, Matt Wells, left to take the Texas Tech job. Interim coach Frank Maile had to prepare the Aggies with an army of graduate assistants and an announcement a new coach was coming next month.

    North Texas, meanwhile, was coming into Albuquerque with experienced coach Seth Littrell and highly touted quarterback Mason Fine.

    The Aggies pushed those distractions aside Saturday.

    Jordan Love threw for 359 yards and four touchdowns and Jalen Greene had six catches for 151 yards and a score to help Utah State rout North Texas 52-13.

    Rivers, Fresno State top Arizona State in Las Vegas Bowl

    Running back Ronnie Rivers might be the embodiment of Fresno State's turnaround.

    It wasn't guaranteed Rivers would be able to play this season after sustaining a foot injury in spring practice, and he was limited by a shoulder injury late in the year. But Rivers was there, leading the way as the Bulldogs completed their journey after going 1-11 two seasons ago.

    Rivers rushed for 212 yards and two touchdowns to help No. 19 Fresno State beat Arizona State 31-20 in the Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday.

    Nevada beats Arkansas State 16-13 in OT at Arizona Bowl

    - As Nevada quarterback Ty Gangi worked through his progressions, Reagan Roberson slipped out into the left flat unnoticed.

    Gangi flipped the ball out to his tight end and Arkansas State's defense quickly converged. Roberson shed the first would-be tackler like he was brushing off a bug, made a beeline for the corner of the end zone, diving across the line just before two more defenders could stop him

    Following more than three quarters of offensive ineptitude, the Wolf Pack found their offensive rhythm at just the right time, beating Arkansas State 16-13 on Saturday in the Arizona Bowl on Roberson's 11-yard overtime catch-and-run.

    Bachmeier helps No. 24 Boise State beat Marshall 14-7



    With a pair of true freshmen guiding Boise State's sputtering offense, the Broncos leaned on their defense to deliver a win against Marshall.

    The No. 24 Broncos held the Thundering Herd to zero yards of offense in the second half and got just enough offense to grind out a 14-7 victory Friday night.

    Big 2nd half leads No. 20 Boise State past Air Force 30-19



    Hank Bachmeier's arm and poise carried No. 20 Boise State until Robert Mahone took over in the fourth quarter.

    And the Broncos' defense? It continued to stymie opponents in the second half, even if it finally gave up some points.

    "The second half we just went out there and tried to put the game away," Mahone said. "It was a close game, but the second half we knew we had to finish and that's what we did."

    Bachmeier threw for 263 yards and two touchdowns, Mahone rushed for a pair of scores in the fourth quarter, and Boise State pulled away in the second half for a 30-19 win over Air Force on Friday night.
