Boise State pounds Miami (Ohio) behind D.J. Harper's career day

Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho -- D.J. Harper rushed for a career-high 162 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Boise State past Miami (Ohio) 39-12 on Saturday.

Harper, a sixth-year senior who was granted a medical redshirt and an extra year of eligibility, also caught a 21-yard pass from Joe Southwick and ran for a 2-point conversion.

Boise State (1-1) won its eleventh straight home opener, overcoming a pair of first-half turnovers before pulling away for good in the second half.

Miami (1-2) took a 9-8 lead in the second quarter after Pat Hinkel's fumble at the Boise State 9 set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Spencer Treadwell to Andy Cruse.

Boise State responded with seven-play, 75-yard drive, culminating with a 1-yard scoring run by Harper to retake the lead.
