ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Hank Bachmeier threw three touchdown passes to lead Boise State to a 31-14 victory over New Mexico.

Latrell Caples caught two of those scores for Boise State (1-1, 1-0 Mountain West).

Ashton Jeanty and George Holani combined for 139 yards on 32 carries for the Broncos.

The Boise State defense held the Lobos (1-1, 0-1) to 123 total yards, with more than half of that coming on Geordon Porter's 69-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Through three quarters, New Mexico had 48 total yards.

The Broncos led 10-0 at halftime before scoring three touchdowns in the second half, including one on a blocked punt.

New Mexico's other fourth-quarter score came on Christian Washington's 100-yard kickoff return.

PUNT THAT STAT

Deven Wright's blocked punt recovery for a score in the third quarter marked the third time in two years that the Broncos have done so against New Mexico.

The Lobos have not blocked a punt in nearly 13 years, the longest streak in the FBS.

THE TAKEAWAY

Boise State: New Mexico showed up on the schedule at the right time. Smarting after a season-opening 34-17 loss at Oregon State, Boise State beat the Lobos for the 12th time in 13 meetings.

New Mexico: The game marked some progress from the Lobos' previous three outings, which they lost by an average score of 41-8.
