Boise State cruises to victory

Associated Press

Kellen Moore threw four touchdown passes and No. 12 Boise State rolled to a 48-0 home win over Miami (Ohio) on Saturday night.

The Broncos (2-0) were never challenged by the rebuilding RedHawks (0-2), still looking for their first points of the season.

Moore completed 16 of 26 passes for 307 yards, including a 54-yard TD pass to receiver Titus Young in the third quarter. Moore also threw touchdowns to Austin Pettis and Tyler Shoemaker before heading for the bench in the third quarter with Boise State up 34-0.

Boise State outgained Miami 441 to 197, and the Broncos’ defense held Miami to 41 yards rushing and intercepted four passes.

The RedHawks stayed close early. But a costly blocked punt with 35 seconds left in the first half set up a 25-yard touchdown toss by Moore to Young that put Boise State up 20-0 at the half.

(17) Utah 24, San Jose St. 14: At San Jose, Calif., Terrance Cain passed for 248 yards and hit Jereme Brooks for a go-ahead 51-yard score early in the fourth quarter, and the Utes finally shook free of the Spartans (0-2) late in their 16th straight victory.

Matt Asiata rushed for 94 yards and an early score for the Utes (2-0), who persevered through 45 frustrating minutes before three late scoring drives kept alive the longest winning streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Wisconsin 34, Fresno St. 31 (2OT): Chris Maragos came up with an interception in the second overtime, and Philip Welch kicked a 22-yard field goal to give the Badgers (2-0) a victory over the Bulldogs (1-1) at Madison, Wis.

Fresno State quarterback Ryan Colburn hit Seyi Ajirotutu in the back of the end zone to force a second overtime.

Maragos then picked off Colburn in the end zone, and the Badgers drove for the decisive field goal.

New Mexico St. 21, Prairie View 18: Jeff Fleming completed 8 of 20 passes and ran for two touchdowns as the Aggies (1-1) beat Panthers (1-1) at Las Cruces, N.M.

The New Mexico State win marked the first victory in the DeWayne Walker era. The former UCLA defensive coordinator took over the reins this winter after the school fired former head coach Hal Mumme.

Navy 32, Louisiana Tech 14: Marcus Curry ran for 124 yards and a score, Ricky Dobbs scored twice and the Midshipmen (1-1) overcame a 14-point deficit to beat the Bulldogs (0-2) at Annapolis, Md.
