BOISE STATE SHOCKS EIGHTH-RANKED FRESNO

Fresno State's unlikely run at college football's biggest prizes ended in a most unlikely way.

Ryan Dinwiddie threw for 297 yards and four touchdowns, and Boise State sacked David Carr 10 yards from the end zone with 51 seconds left as the Broncos beat No. 8 Fresno State, 35-30, Friday night, ending the Bulldogs' improbable run at a Bowl Championship Series bid.

Fresno State (6-1 overall, 2-1 in the Western Athletic Conference) beat Colorado, Oregon State and Wisconsin earlier this fall to become the darlings of the sport. But the Bulldogs scored just two points in the final 27 1/2 minutes against the Broncos (4-3, 3-1), who roared from behind for what was easily the biggest victory in school history.

Fresno State's 17-game home winning streak -- the second-longest in the nation -- ended.
