    BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State has a long way to go if it wants to crash the New Years Six bowl party, but the Broncos did what they needed to do Saturday night to check off another win and keep its early-season momentum rolling. Matt Haack Jersey .Jeremy McNichols accounted for 226 all-purpose yards, including 132 yards rushing and a 61-yard touchdown reception, to lead No. 24 Boise State to a 21-10 victory over Utah State.Having (McNichols) on the field is fantastic, Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien said. He can do so many different things because hes strong in a lot of different areas.McNichols offensive prowess was on full display Saturday night, but he was almost overshadowed by wide receiver Cedrick Wilson. Wilson threw a touchdown pass to McNichols and hauled in a 36-yard touchdown pass from Rypien.The Broncos (4-0, 1-0) led 7-3 at halftime before taking control in the second half with a pair of touchdown passes by Brett Rypien and a stout defensive performance.I think there were some demons we needed to exorcise, especially on the offensive side of the ball, and we did that, Boise State coach Brian Harsin said, whose team lost 52-26 last season to Utah State. But when your defense plays well, thats always exciting. I certainly get fired up when we play well on defense like we did tonight.McNichols, who was named the Mountain West Conference offensive player of the week for his performance against Oregon State, continued to power the Broncos.His 61-yard touchdown reception on a pass from Wilson gave Boise State a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. In the fourth quarter, Boise State turned to McNichols to grind out the clock and secure the victory.Utah State (2-3, 0-2) didnt get the help it received last season in its win over the Broncos when Boise State committed eight turnovers.I thought our defense played well, but the culture around Utah State now is that we gave up too many points, Aggies coach Matt Wells said.Utah State failed to score on Boise States lone turnover when it recovered a muffed punt at the Broncos 25. After the Aggies offense stalled in the red zone, Brock Warren pushed a 32-yard field goal attempt wide left just on the final play of the half.What hurts you is you miss that field goal and you know its going to come back to haunt you, Wells said. And sure enough, it came back to haunt us.With leading rusher Devante Mays out with a right knee injury, Utah State struggled to mount any sustained drives on offense. The Aggies were held well below their 26.2 points per game average and narrowly avoided their first game without a touchdown since 2012.TAKEAWAYSUtah State: The Aggies will have to readjust their goals in Mountain West Conference play moving forward. Back-to-back losses to division front runners Air Force and Boise State along with a remaining tilt with San Diego State puts a serious dent in Utah States hopes of emerging out of the Mountain Division and playing in the conference title game.Boise State: The Broncos took a big step toward solving their second-half woes, which has been a point of emphasis for Harsin. Against both Washington State and Oregon State, Boise State was outscored in the second half and struggled to maintain its big lead. But against Utah State, the Broncos surrendered only one drive of more than four plays and outscored the Aggies 14-7 in the second half.POLL IMPLICATIONSPlaying in its first game since cracking the Top 25 for the first time this season, Boise State looks to rise this week after five of the seven teams directly ahead of them lost. The Broncos will likely also become the highest-ranked Mountain West team after No. 19 San Diego State lost to South Alabama.UP NEXTUtah State: The Aggies stay on the road to face division foe Colorado State on Saturday.Boise State: The Broncos have a shortened week to get ready for a divisional road game at New Mexico on Friday.COSTLY TARGETUtah States Anthony Williams was ejected for targeting near the end of the third quarter after hitting Boise State punt returner Akilian Butler as he was preparing to catch the ball. The officials on the field initially flagged Williams for kick-catch interference, but the replay official reviewed the play and ruled it more egregious.---AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org  href="http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsshop.com/authentic-mike-hull-jersey.html" target="_blank">Mike Hull Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Chase Allen Jersey . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsshop.com/authentic-brandon-doughty-jersey.html ;. Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. NEW YORK -- San Francisco third baseman Eduardo Nunez was left off the roster for Wednesday nights NL wild-card game against the New York Mets, and the Giants opted to go with 11 pitchers.Madison Bumgarner started for the Giants, and manager Bruce Bochy had 10 bullpen options: right-handers Santiago Casilla, Johnny Cueto, George Kontos, Derek Law, Sergio Romo, Jeff Samardzija and Hunter Strickland, and left-handers Javier Lopez, Steven Okert and Will Smith.Cueto and Samardzija are usually starters.Theyre both fresh, Bochy explained. Jeff has experience pitching out of the bullpen. I can use him anywhere. Johnny, hes one of the best pitchers in the game and hes fresh. It gives us another long man. ... So it just gives us coverage there.We just felt the pitcher was more important than a third catcher. So thats why theyre on here, he added.Giants pitchers Matt Cain and Jake Peavy werent included on the 25-man roster.Nunez, an AL All-Star this season with Minnesota, was acquired in a July 28 trade but hasnt played since Sept. 25 because of a strained right hamstring. He planned to test his leg during Tuesdays workout at Citi Field.He couldnt pass the test that we were hoping he could pass. Thats running, sprinting. Hes just not ready. So theres no point in putting him in harms way, Bochy said. We still thought maybe he could help out in some way, but its just too much of a risk. Hes not ready and hes not healthy enough to play.Conor Gillaspie was in the starting lineup at third base.New York went with an eight-man bullpen behind starter Noah Syndergaard:: right-handers Bartolo Colon, Jeurys Familia, Robert Gsellman, Addison Reed, Hansel Robles and Fernando Salas, and left-handers Jerry Blevins and Josh Edgin. William Hayes Jersey. Colon, a starter, was effective in a bullpen role during the 2015 postseason and likely would start the Division Series opener at Chicago on Friday if the Mets advanced.First baseman Lucas Duda, sidelined from May 20 to Sept. 18 by a stress fracture in his lower back, was left off the roster. He went 5 for 23 (.217) with two doubles and four RBI after returning.James Loney, who filled in for Duda most of the season, was in the starting lineup at first base. Loney batted .265 with nine homers and 34 RBI in 100 games this year.Thought wed play a guy that is certainly an outstanding defender for us, saved a lot of runs for us, manager Terry Collins said.I talked to Lucas about it. I know he worked very, very hard to get back and get ready, but this is an awful big challenge tonight for a guy thats just been back for 10 days. So I went with James.Duda hit 57 home runs from 2014-15 and could have posed a power threat off the bench. But the Mets decided against that, too.With their bullpen, if Lucas Duda comes up, hes going to face a lefty. I know that, Collins said. So we thought it would be better to have a guy who has versatility, switch-hitter, who gives you options.Rookie reliever Josh Smoker also was passed over, in favor of fellow left-hander Josh Edgin. Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
