FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi heaved a 33-yard pass to Dallin Holker in the end zone on the final play from scrimmage and Colorado State scored the last 21 points of the game to beat Boise State 31-30 in a wild finish on Saturday night.

Trailing by 20 with about six minutes remaining, Fowler-Nicolosi threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Louis Brown IV with 4:01 to go and tossed a 2-yarder to Dylan Goffney with 1:53 left.

The Rams then forced a three-and-out, but a 40-yard punt pinned them at their own 12-yard line with 33 seconds to go. Fowler-Nicolosi threw a 11-yard pass to Goffney and a 44-yarder to Tory Horton. Following a Bronco timeout and an incomplete pass, Fowler-Nicolosi heaved his pass from near the logo and to the corner of the end zone before a heavily-guarded Holker grabbed the batted ball with no time left.

Jordan Noyes kicked the extra point with no time left to seal it for Colorado State (3-3, 1-1 Mountain West Conference).

Fowler-Nicolosi finished 32-of-54 passing for 359 yards. Vann Schield also had a touchdown run for the Rams.
