BOISE, Idaho (AP) Quarterback Taylen Green ran for a pair of touchdowns and threw for another and Boise State's defense pitched a second-half shutout in the Broncos' 35-27 rally over San Jose State on Saturday night.

Quali Conley's 6-yard scoring run gave the Spartans a 27-7 lead with 4:56 before halftime. In Boise State's designed quarterback rotation, Maddux Madsen led a 14-play, 70-yard drive in a little more than four minutes that ended with his 8-yard scoring run to reduce the deficit to 27-14 just before halftime.

In the third, Green ran it in from the 1 to close within 27-21 with 5:34 left in the third. Green's 11-yard run early in the fourth made it 28-27, and his 2-yard pass to Riley Smith with 3:30 remaining clinched it.

Madsen finished with 155 yards passing and Ashton Jeanty carried it 24 times for 167 yards for the Broncos (3-3, 2-0 Mountain West).

Chevan Cordeiro threw for 325 yards for the Spartans (1-5, 0-2).
