BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Colorado State is coming off its best win of the year, a blowout victory over UNLV that has given first-year coach Jim McElwain the chance to preach the importance of building on success.

The Rams, powered by 24 first-half points and a flurry of turnovers, rolled over the Rebels 33-11 in Fort Collins, Colo., last Saturday.

McElwain says the challenge facing his young team now is avoiding the so-called "one-hit wonder" tag.

The Rams' goal of posting back-to-back wins faces a tough test in Saturday's matchup with Boise State.

The Broncos (8-2, 5-1 Mountain West) are in a tie for first place in the conference and are playing their last game at home this season.

Colorado State (3-7, 2-4) will be making its first trip to Bronco Stadium.
