BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Boise State's Jay Ajayi fueled a 20-point comeback with 134 yards rushing and three touchdowns in the Broncos' 38-29 victory over San Diego State on Saturday night.

The clash between the two top rushers in the Mountain West - San Diego State's Donnel Pumphrey and Ajayi - lived up to its billing. Pumphrey rolled up 147 yards on 24 carries with two touchdowns.

Boise State (8-2, 5-1) is tied with Colorado State atop the Mountain West Mountain Division while San Diego State (5-4, 3-3) remains in contention to win the West division.

Trailing 23-10 late in the third quarter and struggling on offense, Boise State sparked its comeback with a fake punt.

Facing a fourth-and-four from its own 32, Chris Santini took a direct snap and raced 24 yards for a first down. Eight plays later, Ajayi scored on a five-yard run to cut San Diego State's lead to 23-17.
