PARK CITY, Utah - Following a phenomenal performance in the final round of the Utah Invitational, the Boise State men's golf team captured the 15th tournament victory in school history, and the first in more than six years, Tuesday.

The Broncos' last team title came at the Purple and Red Invitational, Sept. 24-25, 2007.

Boise State had entered the final round of the Utah Invitational six strokes back of tournament-leader Utah State, but rallied in the final round to earn a 10-stroke victory at the par-71, 7,130-yard Jeremy Golf and Country Club.

The six-stroke deficit is the largest overcome en route to a victory in the final round of a 54-hole tournament in school history, and the margin of victory is the largest for Boise State since winning the Bronco Spring Invitational by 15 strokes, April 3-4, 1995.

Boise State carded rounds of 364-356-356 to finish at 11-over for the tournament. The team's final-round score (356, +1) was nine strokes clear of the second-best team score of the day.

Leading the charge for the Broncos was junior Ty Travis, who fired a third-straight sub-par round to finish in second place with a 7-under 206 (69-68-69). Travis fell in a playoff for individual medalist honors, as Utah State's Seokwon Jeon drained a 20-foot birdie putt on the second hole.

Travis, who held a share of the lead entering the final 18 holes, has notched back-to-back top-five finishes, and has led or been tied for the lead entering the final round in each of the Broncos' last two tournaments.

Sophomore Logan France registered the best finish of his career, rebounding from an opening-round 75 (+4) to post back-to-back sub-par rounds of 69 (-2) and 70 (-1). His three-round total of 214 (+1) earned him a share of seventh place.

Freshman Kyle Mitsunaga recorded the first top-25 finish of his career, finishing tied for 18th at 216 (73-70-73, +3).

Redshirt senior Jordan Skyles (74-70-76--220, +7), freshman David Elliott (73-79-69--221, +8) and junior Jon VanDyk (80-81-75--236, +23) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos.

Elliott's final-round 2-under 69 was a career best, and tied for the lowest score of the day by a Bronco.

Boise State will continue its fall season at the Price's "Give `Em Five" Invitational Oct. 25-26, in Las Cruces, N.M.
