BOISE, Idaho (Ticker) -- No. 23 Boise State attempts to stretch the longest winning steak in Division I-A to 15 games Friday when it hosts Brigham Young of the Mountain West Conference.

The Broncos (3-0) opened Western Athletic Conference play with a 47-31 triumph at Texas-El Paso on Saturday.

Sophomore Jared Zabransky threw for a career-high 392 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Boise State, which trailed by as many as 10 points and 24-20 early in the third quarter before seizing control.

The Broncos collected 567 yards of total offense in their 14th straight win - two more than co-defending national champion Southern California's streak.

Boise State is 6-0 against teams from the MWC since moving up to Division I-A in 1996.

The Broncos also have the nation's longest home winning streak at 20 games. Ohio State is second with 18 straight home wins.

BYU (1-2) is coming off a 42-10 home loss to the Trojans on Saturday.

John Beck completed 18-of-34 passes for 194 yards, one TD and three interceptions for the Cougars, who held a 3-0 lead early in the second quarter before USC scored 21 points before halftime.

BYU was outgained, 291-27, on the ground and 527-221 overall.

Last year, Boise State won the first meeting between the teams, 50-12, in Provo, scoring touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams in the first half.
