Senior D.J. Harper got things started with an 80-yard touchdown on BSU's first offensive play from scrimmage, and things stayed easy the rest of the way as the Broncos cruised to a 42-14 blowout over Colorado State.
Harper's 100 yards paced the Broncos, and the defense's three turnovers and obvious talent advantage kept the Rams out of the end zone until well after the game was in doubt.
It was over when ...
If you believe in harbingers, Harper's 80-yard touchdown run pretty much signed, sealed, and signaled the outcome in this one. Otherwise, it was over when the Broncos went up 35-0 before the half.
Box score MVP
Hard to argue with Harper's 10 carries for 100 yards - that's like a first down a carry.
