CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Boise State is 3-0 for the first time since 2011, but walked away from Saturdays 38-24 win over Oregon State with some mixed feelings.There was the first half, a spectacular showing of offense and defense by the Broncos that led to a 31-7 halftime lead. But for much of the second half, the Broncos offense was stuck in the mud, and there were special teams that gave up a kickoff return for a touchdown, another long kickoff return that set up another score, as well as an onside kick which the Beavers recovered.Jeremy McNichols ran for 208 yards and scored four first-half touchdowns in leading the Broncos to their fourth consecutive win over a Pacific-12 Conference team.Im happy that were undefeated, but I also know we have a lot of work to do, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said.The tale of two halves, one where Boise State could do little wrong during the first two quarters, yet seemed stalled during most of the second half, left Harsin to harp on a single word.Consistency has got to be there. Thats the name of the game when it comes to any phase. We won the game, thats the ultimate goal. But the standard is, you want to play a certain way, Harsin said.McNichols did most of his damage in the first half, as the junior running back ran for 146 yards and touchdowns of 5, 6 and 70 yards, and caught a 6-yard scoring pass.Brett Rypien completed 19 of 36 passes for 215 yards and one touchdown for Boise State, which beat Washington State earlier this season.The Broncos offense accumulated 512 yards, but only 77 after halftime. Oregon State, held to 67 yards during the first half, finished with 287.Both teams scored on their opening drive, as Oregon State (1-2) tied the game at 7 on a 14-yard run by Ryan Nall. But the Broncos ran over the Beavers from there, holding OSU to 41 yards on its final six first-half drives, while scoring 24 consecutive points to take a 31-7 halftime lead.Boise State took a 14-7 lead on a 6-yard run by McNichols with 5:23 left in the first quarter, then sat on that advantage for nearly a quarter before scoring 17 points during the final seven minutes of the first half.He was angry out there, Harsin said of McNichols. On that long run, I didnt see him, he just squirted out of there and he was gone. Thats the offensive line, thats the tight end, thats J-Mac. Thats what were capable of doing.OSU quarterback Darell Garretson was 11 of 16 for 53 yards, but was benched after a half in favor of Conor Blount. The freshman walk-on gave the Beavers a spark, as Oregon State scored 10 third-quarter points to cut the deficit to 31-17.Darren Lees 19-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Boise State offset a 99-yard kickoff return by OSUs Victor Bolden during the fourth quarter.While there were second-half positives, the brief comeback was of small consolation to OSU running back Ryan Nall, who ran for 66 yards and two touchdowns.Its pretty simple: execution. Were shooting ourselves in the face with penalties, but we can clean that up in practice. Come Monday, were going to be ready to roll, Nall said.It was Boise States first win in four tries at Oregon State. The Broncos have yet to trail in a game this season.THE TAKEAWAYBOISE STATE: The win should put the Broncos in a strong position to crack next weeks AP Top 25 and add to their streak of 14 consecutive years where they have spent at least one week in the rankings. Boise States schedule sets up well for one of its best starts in years, as the Broncos play three of their next four games at home.Beating back-to-back Pac-12 teams is more mindset than talent, Lee said.Everyone we play is talented, everyones got skill, but at the end of the day, you have to have that mentality. If youre not willing to go out and put it down on the line every play, thats the difference, Lee said.OREGON STATE: The Beavers, coming off their first win in 11 games last Saturday against Idaho State, now head into Pacific-12 Conference play, where OSU has lost 11 consecutive games. Oregon State will have much to fix on defense, after giving up 435 yards and 21 first downs during the first half to Boise State. The Beavers offense wasnt much help, after managing just 41 yards on their final six drives of the first half.It was an absolute beat down in the first half. The kids fought and battled back and did some good things. But you cannot trick yourself into wins against good teams. We have to be able to execute, sustain tempo and sustain drives, Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said.NO QUARTERBACK CONTROVERSYGarretson left the game after the first half because Andersen said he wasnt 100 percent due to a lingering foot injury. While Blount had some moments during his college debut, completing 11 of 18 passes for 138 yards, Andersen said when Garretson is physically sound, hell start for the Beavers.Conor can bring some things to the offense with his legs. He did some nice things. Im not afraid to give freshmen an opportunity, Andersen said. But when Darrel is healthy, hes the starting quarterback. Theres no debate about that.UP NEXTBOISE STATE: The Broncos open Mountain West Conference play at home against Utah State next Saturday. Last year, Utah State beat Boise State 52-26, the Broncos most one-sided MWC loss in school history.OREGON STATE: The Beavers hit the road for their Pacific-12 Conference opener at Colorado next Saturday. The Buffaloes opened league play Saturday at Oregon. Jerami Grant Jersey . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Patrick Patterson Jersey .

Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. HOUSTON -- There was need to sugarcoat the harsh reality of what moving forward without All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt will mean for the Texans, both in the short term with their first AFC South game on tap and from the extended view of maintaining their status as a postseason hopeful buoyed by their stout defense.The Texans (2-1) placed Watt on injured reserve Wednesday, a move necessitated by Watt reaggravating the back injury that resulted in surgery in July and his missing the entire preseason. Watt returned in time for the season opener against the Chicago Bears, but with three relatively modest performances (eight tackles, five quarterback hits and 1.5 sacks) came the stark reality that Watt just wasnt himself.Going on IR will give J.J. all the time that he needs to make sure hes 100 percent healthy and back to being himself the next time he steps on the football field, Texans coach Bill OBrien said. This decision made by the organization is in the best interest of J.J.s long-term health and thats what is most important to us, this organization and this team, is obviously the health of the player.Watt, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, is the fulcrum of the defense. But the Texans have done a fine job cultivating pass-rushing talent to complement Watt, with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and linebacker Whitney Mercilus having combined for three sacks and seven quarterback hits. The Texans are tied for third in the NFL in sacks (10), first in net passing yards allowed (151.3), third in opponents third-down conversion rate (26.8) and fifth in net yards allowed (277).The Texans have produced these impressive numbers without Watt resembling the dominant form of seasons past, so it bodes well that even without the best defensive player in the league, a collapse isnt imminent. The initial challenge facing the Texans is simply adjusting to not having Watt available for the first time ever.When you have that kind of ability and that kind of playmaking, its hard to replace with one guy, Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said. So were going to ask all the guys on defense to pick it up, to put a little bit extra in it and see if we can gain some of those plays that J.ddddddddddddJ. used to make. Thats what we have to do.I think that, defensively, we always talk to the guys about being a team, being a unit. Its not just one guy, its everybody doing their job and fitting, and that makes the defense really good. Then when you have a player like J.J., that also makes the defense really good. Were going to try to ask everybody else to tighten their belts and then go play the best game that theyve played.The Texans were coy about the potential return of inside linebacker Brian Cushing, who suffered a knee injury on the first series of the opener yet was back at practice. Cushing didnt commit to playing against the Titans (1-2) on Sunday, but a healthy Cushing would to a slight degree offset the absence of Watt, at least the initial shock.The Titans were careful not to overplay how a Watt-less Texans defense influences their preparation.Tennessee has scuffled offensively, particularly in the passing game, ranking 24th in yards at 229.3 per game. Quarterback Marcus Mariota has thrown four interceptions and has fumbled three times. And while the Titans have been sound running the ball behind DeMarco Murray (245 yards on just 41 attempts), they havent struck the balance necessary to reach full throttle.Tennessee appears poised to welcome back receiver Kendall Wright, who has yet to play in the preseason or regular season after suffering a hamstring injury in training camp. Wright offers the promise of another viable target for Mariota, should the Titans offer Mariota the protection required to revive the modest passing attack.How effectively the Texans pressure Mariota without Watt is a mystery. There was no topic more pressing as both teams discussed what lay ahead.To lose someone like that of his caliber, its tough for them, Mariota said. You never want to see anybody go down. Truly you just wish the best for him. For us, weve just got to continue to game plan, focus on what we can control and do our best to execute whatever is asked of us. ' ' '
