The biggest home game in Boise State history became a four-quarter bullying of their big-conference neighbors to the west that left frustrated Oregon players hitting each other after star running back LeGarrette Blount a teammate punched a Broncos player.

Kellen Moore threw for 197 yards and a touchdown, and the 14th-ranked Broncos pushed aside No. 16 Oregon, 19-8, shoving aside their biggest obstacle between them and a possible second BCS berth.

D.J. Harper scored on a 1-yard run early in the third quarter and Boise State held on for a shaky final 25 minutes of mistakes and turnovers to record their 50th straight regular-season home victory and ruin Chip Kelly’s debut as Oregon head coach.

Utah 35, Utah St. 17 - Terrance Cain passed for 286 yards and two touchdowns in his debut as the No. 19 Utes extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 15 by beating the visiting Aggies.

Maine 34, St. Cloud St. 27 - Quarterback Mike Brusko scored on a 1-yard run in overtime to lead the Black Bears past the Division 2 Huskies at Orono, Maine.

South Carolina 7, N.C. State 3 - Brian Maddox had a short touchdown run and a swarming Gamecocks defense shut down standout quarterback Russell Wilson (74 yards passing) in stopping the host Wolfpack.
