HONOLULU -- There were no signs of jet lag for No. Merril Hoge Jersey . 24 Boise State on Saturday.Behind the play of sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien, the Broncos (9-1, 8-1 Mountain West, No. 22 CFP) scored early and often on their way to a 52-16 rout of host Hawaii.Rypien threw for 338 yards and four touchdowns as Boise State racked up a season-high 603 yards of total offense, 403 of them coming before halftime.The Broncos jumped out to a commanding 28-0 lead early in the second quarter and went on to score touchdowns on six of their first seven possessions.I think were clicking a lot better than we have all year and you want to be playing your best football coming into the end of the year and I think were doing that, said Rypien, who completed 18 of his 22 pass attempts before taking a seat for the final quarter.Boise State coach Bryan Harsin credited his teams week of preparation ahead of its longest road trip of the season.Overall, just the way that the coaches and the players prepared themselves for Hawaii, I was very excited about that, and I think thats got to carry over into these next two games that we play because its all about the process for us, Harsin said.Rypien threw touchdown passes of 35 yards to Thomas Sperbeck and 6 yards to Alec Dhaenens in the first half and added scoring strikes of 35 yards to Cedric Wilson and 44 yards to Sperbeck in the second. He also ran in a touchdown from four yards out to send the Broncos into halftime with a 35-3 lead.I think we had a good plan coming in and I think we had a great week of practice and that helped a lot, said Rypien. We just came out and started fast, like we usually do, but the big thing for us was to play a good four quarters -- well for the starters, three quarters tonight -- but I thought we fought hard every single play.Boise State entered the game ranked 18th nationally in red zone offense and continued that trend Saturday, finding the end zone on all four of its trips inside the 20.Jeremy Nichols, the nations leading scorer, ran for 153 yards on 16 carries and scored on runs of 36 and 5 yards. Wilson had game highs of seven receptions and 141 yards and Sperbeck, the schools all-time leader in receiving yardage, added five grabs for 114 yards.In addition to its offensive success, Boise State managed two defensive takeaways for the first time this season.Paul Harris ran for 145 yards and Rigoberto Sanchez made field goals of 24, 32 and 35 yards for the Rainbow Warriors (4-7, 3-4).THE TAKEAWAYBoise State: Wyomings wild 69-66 triple-overtime loss to UNLV Saturday keeps the door open for the Broncos to sneak into the Mountain West championship game. Boise State needs New Mexico to win out and beat Wyoming on Nov. 26 to create a potential three-way tie in the Mountain Division. The tiebreaker would be determined by the team ranked highest in the College Football Playoff rankings at the end of the regular season.Hawaii: The Rainbow Warriors chances of a bowl game are bleak, but not completely dead. They needed to win their final three games to finish above .500, but there is still a possibility they could be invited to the Hawaii Bowl with a 6-7 record.Weve had about a month here where we havent had a lot of positives and we better figure it out heading into the last two games, Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich said.KEY NUMBERSBoise State: The Broncos entered the game ranked 118th (of 128 FBS teams) in turnover margin, but won the turnover battle Saturday. Safety Chanceller James had an interception in the second quarter and linebacker Joe Martarano forced a fumble in the third quarter that was recovered by teammate Durrant Miles. They did not turn over the ball on offense.Hawaii: The Rainbow Warriors managed just three first downs in the first half. They posted 200 of their 359 yards of total offense -- and 12 first downs -- after halftime.UP NEXTBoise State: The Broncos will face another West Division team when they host UNLV. The Broncos have gone 101-6 at home since 2000.Hawaii: The Rainbow Warriors make their final road trip of the season to take on Fresno State. They are 13-7-1 in games there, including losses in their last two trips.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org Le Veon Bell Jersey .

Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Esmil Rogers is turning into quite a starter for the Toronto Blue Jays. In his third start after opening the season as a reliever for the Blue Jays, the right-hander was as good as Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish in a 3-1 victory Thursday night. Both starters allowed only one run over seven innings, and the Blue Jays got the tiebreaking hit in the eighth when Edwin Encarnacion had a two-run double. "He was tremendous, he really was. You could kind of see that building," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Rogers. "Hes really taken to it." And the Blue Jays could have easily skipped Rogers (2-2), who was supposed to start Wednesday nights game at the Chicago White Sox that was postponed because of inclement weather. Instead, they just pushed back the entire rotation. "They give me that confidence," Rogers said. "Yesterday after the game, we sat down at my locker and they talked to me, that Id pitch tomorrow. I just went back to my room and thought about how I pitched the last time I pitched against the Rangers and let me go on the attack." Casey Janssen worked a perfect ninth for his 14th save. The slumping Rangers wasted another solid outing by Darvish, who has made five consecutive starts without a victory. "Im not amazed," Darvish said through his interpreter. "This is baseball. Anything can happen." Darvish allowed only three hits and walked two, but threw 110 pitches to get through seven innings. Since his last victory May 16 against Detroit, Darvish lost 1-0 to Oakland and has now gone four games in a row without getting a decision. The right-hander has a 2.08 ERA with 41 strikeouts in those 34 2-3 innings over those five games, but the Rangers have scored only seven runs for him in that same span -- and four of those runs came in the same game. "Some games you get a lot of run support. Others you dont," he said. "Im not really surprised by it." Nelson Cruz homered for the Rangers (38-28), who have lost three in a row at home. They have dropped eight of 12 overall, falling out of first place in the AL West and two games behind Oakland. The Athletics (41-27), who play four games in Texas next week, have won 21 of their last 26 games. They capped a three-game series sweep of the New York Yankees with a 3-2 win in 18 innings earlier Thurssday. Chris Boswell Jersey. . Neal Cotts (2-1) replaced Darvish to start the eighth, when Emilio Bonifacio reached on a throwing error by Gold Glove third baseman Adrian Beltre. Munenori Kawasaki had a sac bunt before Tanner Scheppers, the second reliever, walked Jose Bautista before the double to left-centre by Encarnacion broke the 1-all tie. "Yeah, big hit," Gibbons said. "Joses big at-bat before that and (Bonifacio) getting it started and a nice sac bunt, we played well." Rangers centre fielder Leonys Martin made a diving attempt to catch the game-deciding hit. He was fully extended when the ball went under his glove. Martin sprained his left wrist after his gloved hand rolled awkwardly when he hit the ground. The Rangers said X-rays were negative, and said he was day to day with a mild sprain. "Just hurts a little bit, but I dont think its too serious," Martin said through a translator. "I had to run a lot and unfortunately, it was a great hit and I didnt get it." After Cruz homered in the second, Toronto got even in the third, when Bonifacio had a leadoff single. Bonifacio then stole second, sliding headfirst with his hand stretched out to the base just ahead of the tag. Manager Ron Washington came out to discuss the call with second-base umpire Paul Schrieber -- television replays showed the ump got the call right. Bonifacio scored on a single by Melky Cabrera. Darvish retired 14 of the last 15 batters he faced after that, including the last 10. Rogers also retired 10 in a row around the same stretch, a streak that ended when Cruz had a two-out single in the seventh. But Rogers quickly got the third out and had thrown his last pitch when the Blue Jays went ahead. He had pitched 3 1-3 innings his first start, and then allow one run in four innings against the Rangers last weekend. "Im awful proud to get the opportunity," Rogers said. "It doesnt matter where Im going to be, Im going to do my best everywhere." Notes: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, a former Mets player and minor league manager, was named Thursday as one of the AL coaches for the All-Star game next month at Citi Field in New York. ... Toronto had double plays to end each of the first two innings, including right fielder Bautista doubling off Chris McGuiness at first base in the second.
