Boise State exploded out of the gates to take a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back as they defeated CSU 63-13.
CSU received the ball to start the game and went three-and-out on its first drive, BSU marched straight down the field and opened the scoring with a Doug Martin 26-yard touchdown run.
After another CSU punt, Martin struck again.
The senior burst down the left side for a 65 yard touchdown run to make it 14-0 BSU. The long run put him over 100 yards early in the first quarter.
BSU scored yet another touchdown after partially blocking a punt and getting the ball at their own 48.
On the first play of the drive, quarterback Kellen Moore hit Tyler Shoemaker down the middle for an easy 52-yard score to make it 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.
The rolling Boise offense continued in the second quarter when D.J. Harper scored on a long touchdown run of his own.
His run down the right side of the defense gave BSU a 28-0 lead.
That came one play after CSU linebacker Mike Orakpo walked off slowly after he hit his head after losing his helmet. He did not return to the game with a head injury.
The drubbing continued after a Raymond Carter fumble gave BSU the ball at the 33.
Moore made it a family connection when he hit his brother Kirby for a nine yard touchdown to make it 35-0 with 10 minutes remaining in the half.
The packed house at Hughes Stadium finally got a reason to cheer when Thomas connected with Thomas Coffman for a diving 46-yard catch.
On the next play Thomas threw a lateral to Crockett Gillmore who threw to Joe Brown for the easy touchdown.
The joy was immediately shot down when the extra point was blocked to make it 35-6 BSU.
The CSU defense then got the ball back on a fumble that was forced and recovered by Momo Thomas.
And the offense took advantage when coach Steve Fairchild went back to the bag of tricks.
Freshman receiver Charles Lovett took a handoff on the reverse and threw 20 yards to Matt Yemm for the TD. It was the second touchdown pass of the season for Lovett.
BSU held a 35-13 lead at half.
CSU forced a BSU punt on the first drive of the third quarter and seemed to have some real momentum, but BSU faked the punt and ran 36 yards for a first down.
Shortly thereafter Martin recorded his third touchdown of the game, this one for 14 yards.
Shoemaker added another touchdown on a 62 yard pass from Moore after the CSU secondary bit on a play fake. The score made it 49-13.
An interception by Thomas then gave BSU the ball inside the CSU 20.
And they quickly capitalized when Moore hit Gabe Linehan for a three yard touchdown.
That would prove to be Mooreâ€™s last action of the game. When BSU next came out on offense Joe Southwick was in at quarterback.
BSU added one more touchdown after Mooreâ€™s departure and it was the final scoring of the game as BSU won 63-13.
