BOISE, Idaho (AP) Joe Southwick threw five touchdown passes as Boise State pounded overmatched Tennessee-Martin 63-14 on Saturday.

Boise State (1-1) rebounded from its worst defeat in eight years, a 38-6 loss at Washington last week that knocked them from the Top 25.

Tennessee-Martin (1-1), an FCS team from the Ohio Valley Conference, could do little to stop Boise State's hurry-up offense.

This was the first meeting between the programs, and the longest trip west Tennessee-Martin has made for a football game.

Boise State, which has won 12 consecutive home openers on the blue turf at Bronco Stadium, led 49-7 at halftime. They substituted freely in the second half.

Tennessee-Martin fell to 1-15 against FBS programs in its history, beating Memphis last season.

Southwick, who was pulled from the game early in the second half, completed 17 of 25 passes for 234 yards. He was not intercepted.
