(Newser) – Boise State staked its (highly unlikely) claim on college football’s national championship tonight, holding off fellow unbeaten Texas Christian, 17-10, to win the Fiesta Bowl and finish 14-0. The No. 6 Broncos entered the game as the nation’s highest-scoring team, but the third-ranked Horned Frogs (12-1) held them to a fraction of their usual 44.2-point output.
