BOISE -- Boise State's offense appears to have hit midseason form a little early, and just in time for its conference showdown with longtime rival Fresno State.

After failing to score a touchdown in a disappointing opening defeat at Washington, Boise State (2-1, 1-0 Mountain West Conference) has put up 105 points in the last two games.

Coach Chris Petersen says he's pleased with the recent production, but knows the offense will need all the points it can get Friday night against Fresno State and quarterback Derek Carr.

The Bulldogs' game against Colorado last week was postponed due to flooding.

Yet Carr remains among the conference leaders in passing, and the Bulldogs (2-0) are averaging more than 46 points per game.

Boise State has won seven straight against Fresno State.
