Boise State beats OR in Las Vegas Bowl

Making their first postseason visit to Sin City since 2012, Boise State is 3-0 all-time in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Boise State is no stranger to unusual - yet effective - play calls.

Remarkably, the teams combined for seven turnovers in the first half, and careless play by Boise State in the latter stages is primarily what kept OR afloat.

The Broncos were inventive on offense, mixing everything from minor flair like on Wolpin's first score to more elaborate trick plays such as double passes and reverses.

Without even coming close to breaking 100 yards of offense or running a play in Boise State territory, the Ducks trailed by just 10 points at the half.

"That was one thing we talked about all week having to do: Start fast", Rypien said.

The Las Vegas Bowl will be the third meeting between the Ducks and the Broncos. They were up 24-0 midway through the second quarter before OR had ever gained 24 yards on a drive.

After Haden Hoggarth's 39-yard field goal and Kekaula Kaniho's 53-yard interception return gave Boise State a 24-0 lead, OR (7-6) managed to trim the deficit due to two defensive touchdowns.

"Its a great feeling to make history", Raynard said.

"There was no doubt in my mind that we were the team that wanted it and we were going to win it", said Shawn Elliott, the Panthers' first-year coach. The Broncos are 3-1 against Pac-12 teams in bowl games, including a 2-0 record in the Las Vegas Bowl with wins over Arizona State in 2011 and Washington in 2012.

OR is led by Mario Cristobal, who is the Ducks' new head coach.

In all three of those bowl wins, Boise State built an early 24-point lead.

Cedrick Wilson is, by far, Rypien's favorite target. "Personally, it feels good that all the hard work I've done paid off". Mattison has 209 carries for 1,074 yards and 12 touchdowns. "He made some plays in critical situations".

OR clawed back into it with two defensive touchdowns in the final minute of the first half. Then the Broncos got too cute. "The guys that were involved were able to shake it off". In the second half, Jim Leavitt's unit didn't even have the services of leading tackler Troy Dye, who didn't return to the sideline after halftime while reportedly dealing with dehydration, and inside linebacker Sampson Niu also left with an injury in the third quarter and did not return.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Keion Davis rushed for 141 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown, and Marshall had two other big scoring plays in a 31-28 victory over Colorado State. Rypien put up 362 yards on 21-for-38 passing, easily outdueling Oregon's more decorated Justin Herbert, who had 223 yards on 26-for-36 passing.

Boise State averages 32.1 points per game and gives up 22.5 points per game. "To have a performance like that against that type of offense is pretty special".

Chase Litton threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns for the Thundering Herd (8-5).

Much like Wolpin's first score, it was a combination of synchronization, as four players including himself shifted across the line, and determination, as he lowered his head and powered past the goal line.
