Bachmeier, Boise State defeat Utah State 27-3

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Hank Bachmeier threw for two touchdowns, Boise State’s defense frustrated Utah State and the Broncos won their 22nd-straightconference opener with a 27-3 win over the Aggies on Saturday.

The back-breaker was a 3-yard pass from Bachmeier to Scott Matlock with 5:09 to play. That capped a 15-yard drive after a critical fumble by Utah State quarterback Andrew Peasley. It took the Broncos nine plays and 4 minutes, 23 seconds to cover 15 yards because of penalties.

Utah State (3-1, 1-1 Mountain West Conference), off to its best start since the 1978 team opened 5-0, finally scored on a field goal less than a minute into the fourth quarter. But even then, the Aggies had a first-and-goal on that drive.

Boise State (2-2, 1-0) answered that with a field goal and followed with Jackson Cravens’ strip sack and Demitri Washington’s recovery.
