Special Teams Key San Diego St 21-19 Over Boise St

By  | 

Adam Muema rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown and San Diego State's special teams had a hand in two other scores in a 21-19 upset at No. 19 Boise State Saturday night.

The Aztecs returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and then in the second half Dwayne Garrett blocked a punt that set up the offense at the Boise State 8. Two plays later, Muema scored on a 3-yard run to put the Aztecs up 14-13.

The win is the fifth straight for the surging Aztecs (7-3, 5-1 Mountain West) and moved them into a tie for first in the Mountain West Conference. It was also San Diego State's first victory over a ranked foe since 1996.

The Broncos (7-2, 4-1) suffered a rare loss at home for the second straight year. Last season, TCU came in and won at Bronco Stadium, spoiling Boise State's hopes for a conference championship and playing in a BCS bowl.

The Broncos were led by D.J. Harper, who scored twice and rushed for 81 yards.
