Boise State Falls to Oregon State 34-17
Boise State's second-half efforts fell short Saturday night following a 24-0 deficit, as Oregon State came away with a 34-17 win in Corvallis.
Boise State's highly-anticipated season opener against Oregon State quickly snowballed in favor of the Beavers Saturday night. Trailing 24-0 at halftime,
the Broncos were unable to pull themselves back despite a strong second-half effort, dropping the week one contest 34-17.
Following back-to-back interceptions and a fumble from Hank Bachmeier, Boise State elected to pull the fourth-year starter in favor of redshirt freshman Taylen Green early in the second quarter.
On its first 15 plays of the game, Boise State's offense tallied just one rushing yard and 31 yards total. The rocky start put the Broncos down 17-0 with 10:28 to go in the first half.
Multiple times Saturday, the Broncos' defense was forced to sink their heels in, eager to get back within reach.
Oregon State worked the clock for nearly six minutes after Green's interception, leaving just 4:37 left in the contest up 34-17.
