The Boise State Broncos took a 32-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter over the UNLV Rebels Saturday. The Broncos built most of their lead in the second quarter, when Boise Sate scored 17 points capped by a fumble returned for a touchdown by Jerrell Gavins.
BSU added to their advantage in the third quarter, as D.J. Harper scored his second rushing touchdown of the day from one yard out to cap a 54-yard drive. The score was set up by a 35-yard pass from Joe Southwick to Chris Potter on third-and-14 from the UNLV 36.
UNLV's best player, running back Tim Cornett, went down with an injury with just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter. He appeared to fall directly on the ball, and may have just had the wind knocked out of him. He walked off the field under his own power, and returned for the first play of the 4th quarter.
Boise State's defense has limited the Rebels to just 160 total yards on the day. The Broncos look certain to win their sixth consecutive game. The Rebels moved into Bronco territory after converting several third downs to open the fourth quarter.
