|TOP 25 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: #10 Boise State Wins Shootout Against Fresno State
|FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Jeremy Avery scored on a 67-yard screen pass and added a 74-yard run, providing just two of the many highlight-reel plays in No. 10 Boise State's 51-34 victory over Fresno State Friday night.
Titus Young scored two touchdowns, including a diving fumble recovery in the end zone after Avery ran it 74 yards to the 1 as Boise State (3-0, 1-0) won for the 57th time in its past 59 Western Athletic Conference games.
The Broncos broke out to a 24-3 lead then had to scramble to win this one and keep alive its hopes for making it back to a Bowl Championship Series game.
Fresno State (1-2, 0-1) got three touchdown runs of at least 60 yards from Ryan Mathews but lost for the 10th straight time against teams ranked in the Top 25.
