Boise State Broncos Run Over UNLV Rebels 42-25

McNichols punished the Rebel defense by dishing out vicious hits...

BOISE, ID--Junior Jeremy McNichols ran for 206 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to help #20 Boise State beat back UNLV 42-25 last night in Albertsons Stadium.  McNichols tied school records for the most career 150-yard rushing games and the most 200-yard games (see charts at conclusion of article.)

The Broncos tied Nebraska's modern record with their 202nd win in the last 19 seasons and trail only Yale (218 wins from 1887-1905) and Pennsylvania (217 from 1890-1908) for the most wins in a 19-year period in college football history.  Boise State (10-1, 6-1 in Mountain West Conference play) became the seventh team in NCAA history to win 10 or more games in 12 of 15 seasons.  The Broncos reached the 10-win plateau for the second time in three seasons under head coach Bryan Harsin.

McNichols, who came into the game as the nation's fifth-leading rusher, leads the country in scoring with 156 points, 36 more than the next closest player.  He posted his third 200-yard game of the season, to match current NFL standout Jay Ajayi's school record.  

"(McNichols) did a good job of bouncing to the outside and breaking contain," UNLV coach Tony Sanches said.  

After spotting the Rebels a field goal, Boise State responded with a 19-play, 74-year drive when quarterback Brett Rypien plunged over the goal line from one yard out.

Boise State's anemic special teams clicked tonight, as Cedrick Wilson exploded for a 73-yard punt return, the Broncos' longest since Donte Deayon's 75-yard return against Wyoming in 2014.  UNLV punter Evan Pantels got just enough of Wilson's jersey to bring him down at the Rebel six-yard line.  Boise State entered the game with just 60 punt return yards all season.  Wilson also registered a 44-yard kickoff return, longest for the Broncos this season.

Wilson's heroics set up a six-yard run from McNichols, who bounced outside and sprinted to the end zone to give Boise State a 14-3 first-quarter advantage.

McNichols found the end zone again on a one-yard plunge to cap a 61-yard drive that extended the Bronco lead to 21-3.  After Alexander Mattison scored on a three-yard run to give Boise State a 28-10 lead, McNichols scored his third TD on a four-yard run.  With his team ahead 35-17 in the fourth quarter, McNichols broke a tackle and added his fourth score on a 31-yard run.  

UNLV ended the scoring with 1:41 left in the game.  The Rebels advanced to the Boise State 45 when UNLV's Andrew Price ran a deep route along the right sideline.  Boise State's Raymond Ford matched Price stride for stride as quarterback Kurt Palandech uncorked a long pass.  As both players looked for the ball, Price pushed Ford away to gain separation, allowing him to easily run into the end zone for the score. 

McNichols passed Rodney Webster (3,034 yards from 1980-83) and Jeremy Avery (2,932 from 2007-10) for seventh place in career rushing at Boise State.  McNichols, with 3,071 rushing yards, is 260 behind former Bronco great and current NFL star Doug Martin (2008-11).  McNichols now has 1,575 yards this season, fourth on the Boise State list.

With 217 yards against Colorado State, 208 vs. Oregon State and tonight's 206, McNichols now has three of Boise State's top 15 rushing performances, all accomplished this season.  McNichols tied Ian Johnson (2005-08) with his 15th career game over 100 yards and tied Martin for fourth with his 43rd career rushing touchdown.  McNichols eclipsed his 2015 total for touchdowns in a season and ranks fourth with 22 this year.  He is the only player in Boise State history with two of the top five seasons.

McNichols and Mattison, who ran for 24 yards and a touchdown, moved from 13-6 on the list of top rushing duos in a season.  The formidable pair, who have combined for 1,882 yards this season, are 533 shy of the school record set in 2014 by Ajayi and Grant Hedrick.

Palandech scored a two-point conversion and UNLV attempted an onside kick only to have the Broncos recover and run out the clock.

The Boise State defense continued to allow big gains by opposing quarterbacks on the ground--Palandech led his team in rushing with 64 yards but completed just 10-of-20 passes for 113 yards.  Palandech capped a 12-play drive in the second quarter with a seven-yard TD and a 14-play, 79-yard drive with a nine-yard dash in the third.

Rypien's passing statistics were almost identical to those of Palandech, finishing the game 10-of-20 for 109 yards.  Rypien misfired on several deep balls, unable to spot open receivers in the middle of the field.  His 10 completions were to just four Bronco receivers (Thomas Sperbeck, Wilson, McNichols and Chaz Anderson.  Nevertheless, Rypien tied Hedrick (2011-14) for sixth all-time in career completions, both with 475.

Rypien went over the 3,000-yard passing mark for the season to give Boise State a 3,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 1,000-yard receiver for the second consecutive year and sixth time in school history.

(Sperbeck shows amazing focus in hauling in a catch during last year's Poinsettia Bowl win over Northern Illinois)

Sperbeck, Boise State's all-time leader in career receiving yards, led the Broncos with five catches for 47 yards in his final regular season home game and ranks eighth (in single-season receiving yards) with 1,070 yards this season.  Sperbeck is now fourth in school history with 205 receptions and is tied for eighth in catches in a season with 75.

Senior Darren Lee paced the Bronco defense with 11 tackles, 10 of them solo, after fellow linebacker Joe Martarano was taken off the field on a cart after an injury.  Harsin said he will be without the services of Martarano for a few weeks and also announced that star linebacker Tanner Vallejo is out for the season after electing to have wrist surgery.

Tyler Rausa booted all six extra points to extend his streak of consecutive PAT's to 67, tied for third all-time at Boise State.

In the three games since their last-minute loss at Wyoming, Boise State has averaged over 48 points a game while allowing opponents just over 21.

Boise State travels to face Air Force next Friday.  Most of the Bronco starters have never beaten the Falcons on the field and will try to break a two-game losing skid to them.

UNLV hosts Nevada next Saturday in the regular season finale for both teams.
