BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Jared Zabransky threw three touchdown passes
and ran for another score, Korey Hall had three interceptions and
Boise State extended its winning streak to 13 games with a 53-34
victory over Oregon State on Friday night.
The Broncos, who improved to 2-0 with their first victory over a
Pac-10 team in school history, have the longest current winning
streak in Division I-A and their 20-game home run also is the best
in the nation. Boise State is 25-1 in its last 26 games, with the
lone setback a 26-24 loss last season at Oregon State.
Oregon State (0-2), coming off a 22-21 overtime loss at LSU,
raced to a 14-0 lead, but the Broncos scored 34 straight points to
Hall returned one of his interceptions 46 yards for a touchdown
in the second quarter to cut Oregon State's lead to 14-10, and
Zabransky gave the Broncos the lead late in the quarter with an
18-yard scoring pass to Derek Schouman.
Tyler Jones made a 26-yard field goal on the final play of the
first half to make it 20-14 and the Broncos pulled away in the
third quarter on Schouman's 17-yard TD catch and running back Jeff
Carpenter's 21-yard scoring pass to T.J. Acree.
Oregon State's Derek Anderson threw for 411 yards and four TDs --
three to Mike Hass -- but also had four interceptions.
The Beavers stunned the Boise State-record crowd of 30,950 when
they scored on their first two possessions, with Anderson
connecting with Hass on 49- and 9-yard scoring plays. Hass finished
with 12 catches for 293 yards.
Zabransky, a sophomore from Hermiston, Ore., who threw only 23
passes last season as Ryan Dinwiddie's backup, was 20-for-34 for
225 yards and also ran for 73 yards on 14 carries.
