Boise State 30, Louisiana Tech 13

RUSTON, La. (AP) -- Ian Jackson ran for 103 yards and scored the team's final touchdown as Boise State defeated Louisiana Tech 30-13 Saturday.

Johnson bolted in from 18 yards after a fumbled kickoff to give the Broncos (9-3, 7-1 Western Athletic Conference) their fourth consecutive win against Tech (6-4, 5-2), whose hopes for a bowl appearance dissipated with the setback.

The Broncos, defending WAC champions, now await a probable invitation to the Humanitarian Bowl which will be held in Boise during the latter part of December.

Jared Zabranksy was 10-of-17 for 137 yards and two touchdowns for the Broncos.

Matt Kubik finished 17-of-32 for 180 yards and one touchdown for the Bulldogs.

Boise State trailed 10-7 at halftime before taking the lead for good at 14-10 with 3:45 left in the third quarter on Lee Marks' 16-yard run.

A 40-yard field goal by Danny Horwedel brought Tech to within 14-13, but the Broncos went ahead 21-13 following a 10-yard pass from Zabransky to tight end Sherm Blazer.
