Boise State running game starting to contribute

Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson

BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State has not taken its foot off the gas. It came out of the locker room and added another touchdown.

It was good to see the score come on the ground because the Boise State running backs had been pretty quiet this evening. Obviously, there was a little concern about the Broncos' running game coming into this season with Ian Johnson gone, but D.J. Harper and Jeremy Avery have found their legs early in the second half.

Through the first half, the Broncos had 28 carries for 52 yards. They had 56 rushing yards on the first drive of the second half and Harper scored the first rushing touchdown of the season.
