Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore faked a sweep handoff to Childs, then handed to Johnson, who broke outside and found an open field. Officials brought to the ball to the sideline for Johnson to keep.
The Broncos needed the cushion, because TCU's fast, aggressive defense finally clamped down.
Johnson is best known as scoring the winning 2-point conversion against Oklahoma on a "Statue of Liberty" play, then proposing to his cheerleader girlfriend moments later.
Johnson's wife, Chrissy, spoke with Tomlinson on the sideline after doing a TV interview during the first quarter.
Boise State defensive end Bryon Hout intercepted Andy Dalton midway through the second quarter, and his 62-yard return included a nice spin move to get away from one TCU player and a stiff arm against another Horned Frog. Hout was a running back in high school.
Hout returned the ball to the TCU 11, but the Broncos had to settle for Brotzman's 24-yard field goal and a 13-0 lead.
TCU finally scored on Aaron Brown's 16-yard run just before halftime.
Brown had 102 yards on 14 carries while Turner had 83 yards on 16 rushes.
