FRESNO, Calif. — The Boise State Broncos are now at the midway point of conference play. Coach Leon Rice and the Broncos entered their matchup against the Fresno State Bulldogs 4-4 in Mountain West Conference play.

The Broncos built a 35-26 advantage at intermission and outscored the Bulldogs 52-27 over the final 20 minutes.
