Boise State (3-1, 1-0 Mountain West) led by 25 points at half time after turning three fumbles by the Lobos (2-3, 0-1) into 18 points.

at Air Force 42, Colorado State 21: Cody Getz had 222 of Air Force’s 459 yards rushing to lead the Falcons over their in-state rivals.

The Falcons (2-2, 1-1 Mountain West) defeated the Rams (1-4, 0-1) for the seventh straight year. Connor Dietz threw two touchdowns for Air Force, the nation’s No. 2 rushing team entering the game.
