BOISE ST 45, SMU 3

10/18/2003

DALLAS (Ticker) -- It would be hard for Boise State's fans to
find fault with this one.

Ryan Dinwiddie passed for 509 yards and four touchdowns as the
Broncos routed winless Southern Methodist, 45-3, in a Western
Athletic Conference contest.

Boise State (6-1, 3-0) was booed in last week's 27-20 home
victory over Tulsa, but blew out SMU early, building a 31-0
halftime cushion.

Dinwiddie, who completed 27-of-36 passes, surpassed 500 yards
for the second time in three games. He threw for a school-record
532 yards in a 43-37 victory over Louisiana Tech on October 4.

Boise State had three players with more than 100 yards
receiving. Lawrence Bady caught four passes for 173 yards and a
touchdown, Jerry Smith grabbed six passes for 151 yards and a
score and T.J. Acree hauled in nine receptions for 110 yards.

Tim Gilligan had only 65 yards, but caught TD passes of 1l yards
in the first quarter and eight yards in the third period.

Dinwiddie was responsible for five touchdowns as his one-yard
keeper gave Boise State a 17-0 lead after the first period.
After Donny Heck scored on a 17-yard run with 9:24 left in the
second quarter, Dinwiddie tossed a 28-yard TD strike to Jerry
Smith with 48 seconds left in the half to make it 31-0.

Boise State held a 641-214 edge in total offense. The Mustangs
(0-7, 0-4) got their only points on Chris McMurray's 27-yard
field goal in the third quarter.

Keylon Kincade rushed for 103 yards on 21 carries for the
Mustangs. Richard Bartel completed just 9-of-25 passes for 104
yards and was sacked four times.
