BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State running back Jeremy McNichols admitted that last season he didnt spend as much time in the film room or with his offensive line. Hes changed that this year and its paying big dividends.McNichols rushed for 206 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to power No. 20 Boise State past UNLV 42-25 on Friday night.Boise State (10-1, 6-1; ?No. 22 AP) kept its Mountain West title hopes alive and reached 10 victories for the second time in three seasons under head coach Bryan Harsin. After passing Western Michigan in the College Football Playoff rankings this week, the Broncos also remained in contention for a Cotton Bowl berth.McNichols set a school record for the most 200-yard rushing games in a single season with his third.You have to know your offensive line well, McNichols said. And last year I didnt watch as much film with them or spend as much time around them. But I changed that this year.Now even at our walk throughs, Ill go over and see what theyre talking about. Having a good relationship with your offensive line is huge. When they mean something and you show them they mean something, they feel like they scored a touchdown with you. They run down the field to try and catch me. Its fun.The Rebels (4-7, 3-4), who lost for fifth time in five tries at Boise State, didnt have much fun trying to stop McNichols, who entered the game as the nations fifth-leading rusher.(McNichols) did a good job of bouncing to the outside and breaking contain, UNLV coach Tony Sanchez said. We had him dead to rights a few times, but just werent able to tackle in space. And that killed us.UNLVs offense, which was missing leading receiver Devonte Boyd due to a broken hand suffered last week, didnt have any better luck either, managing only 302 yards of total offense, their second-lowest output of the season.Harsin said he planned on emphasizing the ground game against UNLV, but things went better than expected.We came in here with the game plan to run the ball, Harsin said, But the way Jeremy was just running it, when hes hot like that, you want to keep getting it to him.McNichols, a junior who could follow in the footsteps of former teammate and Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi and enter the draft after the season, said his last regular season game at home seemed different.I said before the game that something felt special about tonight, McNichols said. When you get in that groove, you feel like every touch could go the distance. And it felt like that tonight.After UNLV converted a fumble into a field goal on Boise States opening possession, the Broncos went on a 19-play, 74-yard drive -- their longest of the season -- and took a 7-3 lead on quarterback Brett Rypiens 1-yard run.The Broncos followed that drive up with their shortest after a 73-yard punt return by Cedrick Wilson set up Boise States offense at the UNLV 6. On the only play of the drive the Broncos ran, McNichols bounced outside and won a footrace to the corner of the end zone for the touchdown, giving Boise State a 14-3 first quarter lead.That early lead helped set the tone for Boise State as UNLV never really threatened to make the game competitive.Rypien finished with 109 yards on 10-of-20 passing. Career receiving leader Thomas Sperbeck had five catches for 47 yards in his final regular-season home game.UNLVs Kurt Palandech passed for 113 yards, completing 10 of 20 passes. He also led the team in rushing with 64 yards.TAKEAWAYSUNLV: The Rebels have already topped last seasons win total of three games, but they will look to finish strong with a win in their finale next Saturday. With a victory, the Rebels could lock up second place in the West division and set their eyes on getting bowl eligible next year.Boise State: The Broncos defense delivered one of their most dominant performances of the season as the entire team seems to peaking at the right time. In the three games since its last-minute loss on the road at Wyoming, Boise State has committed only one turnover and averaged more than 48 points a game, while limiting opponents to just over 21.POLL IMPLICATIONSBoise State isnt likely to impress the voters much with the victory, though the easy win shouldnt cost them any votes either. Dont expect the Broncos to move up in the poll much as most of the teams in front to them are all favored to win handily Saturday.UP NEXTUNLV: The Rebels host in-state rival Nevada in the regular-season finale for both teams.Boise State: The Broncos will travel to Air Force for their final regular-season tilt in a must-win game to keep their division title hopes alive.MORE McNICHOLSMcNichols entered the game leading the nation in scoring with 132 points. His four touchdowns put him at 156 points, 36 more than the next closest player. He also took the leading in rushing touchdowns with 22 for the season.

HOUSTON -- Wake Forests 2015 season ended with a loss to Stanford, but the Demon Deacons arent focused on revenge entering the College Cup final Sunday.The reward of a national championship is enough for Wake Forest, as the Demon Deacons look to end Stanfords bid for a second straight national championship.We dont really care who we played. We know we can beat any team in the country, said Wake Forest forward Jon Bakero, who had a goal and an assist in Wake Forests double-overtime semifinal win over Denver on Friday.Stanford (14-3-5) beat Wake Forest 2-1 in overtime in the quarterfinals last season on the way to the programs first national championship. While there are many players on each team that played in that game, the Stanford isnt expecting more of a challenge than normal from the Demon Deacons.Both teams have the chance to play for a national championship, Stanford head coach Jeremy Gunn said. Do you think anyone really cares what happened last year?Wake Forest coach Bobby Muuss agreed.It didnt matter if we were playing Stanford or (North) Carolina, Muuss said. Wake Forest has to worry about Wake Forest.While Wake Forest isnt putting any more stock into Sundays game because of its defeat last season to Stanford, the team doesnt deny the loss was a primary source of motivation throughout the season.Were a mature group, Bakero said. I think obviously when you lose a game like that last year, the whole spring, the whole summer, what were thinking about is getting back.Both teams went to overtime Friday night to reach the national championship game. Wake Forest scored in double overtime through midfielder Ian Harkes to advance past Denver, while Stanford reached the final through penalty kicks for the second straight season, beating North Carolina 10-9 in the shootout.Wake Forest has the nations second-best defense, allowing just 0.48 goals per game. Stanford, though, is yet to allow a goal through four tournament games.Stanford is a very well-balanced team and a confident group, Muuss said. We know we have a challenge in front of us.Some things to know about the Wake Forest-Stanford game.STANFORD USED TO THE BEST: As the reigning national champions, Stanford is used to getting its opponents best game. While the Cardinal got off to a shaky start this season with three ties and a loss in its first four games, it quickly became accustomed to each game beiing the biggest on its oppositions schedule.dddddddddddd On Sunday, that will be no different.It made the regular season the toughest because everyone would bring their A-game, Gunn said. Youve been through it.OPPOSING STYLES: Sundays final will feature a contrast in styles, with Wake Forest preferring a passing game to Stanfords preference to play more a direct, counter-attacking game. Muuss said his team is well aware of what to expect from Stanford, while Gunn thinks there may be more scoring opportunities than his teams semifinal game against North Carolina because each team has a unique attacking identity.Its quite simple, Gunn said. We have to figure out ways of shutting them down when theyre on the ball and then figure out ways of breaking them down.NOT AN IDEAL FIELD: The field at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston was replaced in the middle of the last MLS season, which means it is not yet in prime condition. Muuss said after Friday nights semifinal win that it was like playing on sand, and he believes the conditions may favor a team like Stanford more than the Demon Deacons. The Wake Forest coach said it took his team a half to adjust on Friday night, and he wants his team to be safe on Sunday, especially defensively.We just have to make sure were playing safer at the back, maybe an extra touch, Muuss said. We just dont want to have self-inflicting wounds.NO STAR TREATMENT: Last season, Stanfords star player was All-American Jordan Morris, who was named MLS Rookie of the Year this season for the Seattle Sounders. Stanford doesnt feature a big star this season, but Gunn pointed out the teams leading scorer Foster Langsdorf has more goals, 15, than Morris did last season.QUICK TURNAROUND: As reigning national champions, Stanford knows how to handle a championship weekend. After the national semifinal on Friday, teams in the championship only have one day to prepare for the final. Both teams downplayed the significance of a short preparation, with Muuss saying his players were going straight to a yoga session after Saturdays press conference.We know going into the weekend what it entails, so we make the necessary preparations, and guys get to recovering as fast as possible after the game, Stanford goalkeeper Nico Corti said.
