Moore Finishes #1

Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore may not have won the Heisman Trophy, but he beat Cam Newton.

After Newton's performance in last night's mythical national championship game, Moore passed the Auburn quarterback for #1 in the land.  Moore finished his season with a 26-3 win over #20 Utah and wound up with a 182.63 passing efficiency rating.  Newton was just 20-34 for 265 yards and two touchdowns but an interception.  Newton thus dropped from a rating of 188.16 to a rating of 182.05.

What does it take to win the title?  Moore completed 273-of-383 passes (71.28%) for 3,845 yards (10.04 yards per attempt) and 35 touchdowns against just six interceptions.  Moore's career record as a starter is 38-2 as he helped Boise State finish in the national top ten for the second year in a row and the third time in the last five years.

Congratulations to Kellen!

Go Out and Support the Basketball Team!

Coach Leon Rice is building excitement in his first year at the helm of the Boise State basketball team.  The Broncos are 4-0 and face an old nemesis, Utah State, this Thursday night in Taco Bell Arena.  The women are also playing that night at 6 so a good doubleheader of Bronco action is on tap.  It would be great if we can top 10,000 Thursday night--be a part of it!
