Boise State looks to remain perfect at San Jose State

Nov 7, 2006 - 9:43 PM No. 14 Boise St (9-0) at San Jose St (6-2), 6:00 pm EST

SAN JOSE, California (Ticker) - Boise State is three wins away from a perfect record. More importantly, the Broncos likely are three triumphs away from their first berth in a Bowl Championship Series game.

The 14th-ranked Broncos look to remain undefeated when they visit Western Athletic Conference rival San Jose State on Saturday.

Last Wednesday, Boise State (9-0, 5-0 WAC) posted a 45-21 win over Fresno State to run its home winning streak to 29 games.

Jared Zabransky threw for three touchdowns and Ian Johnson ran for 136 yards and two TDs for the Broncos, who are 14th in the BCS standings. They must finish at least 12th in the final standings to get an automatic berth in one of the five lucrative bowls, or in the top 16 while being ahead of the top contender from one of the six major conferences. Currently, they are ahead of Georgia Tech, which leads the Atlantic Coast Conference teams in 18th.

San Jose State (6-2, 3-1) has won six of its seven games since a season-opening loss at Washington. Last Saturday, the Spartans snapped a 15-game road skid with a 31-21 win over New Mexico State.

The Spartans scored the go-ahead touchdown two minutes into the fourth quarter when Jeff Clark returned a blocked punt two yards for a touchdown.

Boise State has won all six games in the series, including a 38-21 home win last year. The Broncos posted a 56-49 win in double overtime in the last meeting here.
