Junior Anthony Drmic scored 34 points, matching his career high, and Derrick Marks added 17 points as Boise State routed UT Arlington 116-87 in the season opener for both teams Friday night at Taco Bell Arena.

Drmic made five 3-pointers for Boise State, which shot 57.7 percent from the floor.

The Broncos' 116 points are the second most in school history. Boise State scored 118 in 1971 against Portland State.

Five Broncos scored in double figures, including freshman Dezmyn Trent (13).

Senior guard Jeff Elorriaga was hit in the head during practice this week and was held out of the opener as a precaution.
