No. 6 Boise State Holds Off Late Charge From No. 3 TCU, Wins Fiesta Bowl 17-10

Glendale, AZ (Sports Network) – Doug Martin scored the go-ahead touchdown with 7:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, as sixth-ranked Boise State held off a late charge by No. 3 TCU, to post a 17-10 victory in the Fiesta Bowl.

Kellen Moore threw for 211 yards on 23-of-39 attempts for the Broncos, who became the second team in NCAA history to notch a 14-0 record, joining the 2002 Ohio State Buckeyes. Brandyn Thompson picked off TCU quarterback Andy Dalton twice, returning one of the interceptions for a touchdown, to earn defensive MVP honors.

Dalton completed 25-of-44 passes for 272 yards and one touchdown, but threw three interceptions, the final one sealing the Horned Frogs’ (12-1) fate in the dying seconds.
