Bronco Volleyball Team Officially Opens Play in the Mountain West

The Boise State volleyball team, which just missed a win over #22 Oklahoma Saturday, ventures to Laramie, Wyoming to open conference play against the University of Wyoming.

The Bronco team played superb ball against Oklahoma in Norman, taking the shocked Sooners to the wire.  Coach Shawn Garu's squad hopes to continue that momentum into its first season in the Mountain West.  As usual, you can hear about the results first on Blue Through and Through.  I care about everything Bronco related, not just fooball and basketball, and want to make sure you get the results while they're still fresh.

Moore Recognized Nationally

Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore was honored a the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week following his sterling performance against Toledo.  Moore was also one of eight quarterbacks that were named a Manning Award Star of the Week.

Moore placed his name in the Bronco record book in five different categories last Friday, hitting 32-of-42 passes for 455 yards and five touchdowns as the Broncos ran away from Toledo 40-15.

Fans can vote for Moore for both awards.  Fan voting counts five percent during each round of the Davey O'Brien Award and you can (and are encouraged to) vote daily at:

The Manning Award is a weekly vote and voting closes tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 8:30 Mountain Time.  Hurry up and get that "Like" button pressed for Kellen at:

Schueren Cited by Mountain West as Offensive Player of the Week

A Boise State student-athlete has won a Mountain West Conference Player of the Week Award and it's someone not named Kellen Moore.

Freshman midfielder Shannon Schueren is this week's Player of the Week after her game-winning goal in the 102nd minute gave Boise State a 1-0 victory over South Dakota.  It was the second game-winner for Schueren, who headed hom a goal in double overtime against Portland State last weekend.  Schueren tops the team with three goals this season.

Congrats Shannon!
