Senior Bowl Recap

Boise State's Doug Martin led all running backs on the North team with a 4.8 yards-per-carry average.  Kellen Moore of the Broncos was the only QB on the North team not to throw an interception.  Although the North coaches greatly limited his ability (for example, calling a running play on a third-and eight at the South nine-yard line), Moore finished 6-12 for 50 yards with a long of 23 yards.  This despite not getting good protection from his offensive line and having his receivers drop several passes thrown right between the numbers.

Boise State's Follow-Up to UNLV

Remember in my write-up of the UNLV game, I said that, after taking the nation's 12th-best team to overtime, anything other than wins the rest of the way would be a letdown. 

Final in from TacoBell:  Wyoming 75, BoiseState 64.

"Doug Martin: The Best Running Back This Week" at Senior Bowl

The North coaches aren't letting All-American quarterback Kellen Moore get too many plays, but Boise State running back Doug Martin is shining.  Three carries for 18 yards.

North Offensive Line Not As Good As Boise State

Kellen Moore was sacked on consecutive plays by the same guy.  Obviously, the North badly needs Nate Potter, Joe Kellogg and the rest of the Bronco offensive line.  Boise State's line would never allow that.

Two Interceptions Thrown in Senior Bowl, None by Kellen Moore

Both "starting quarterbacks", Brandon Weeden and Russell Wilson of the South and North, respectively, have thrown interceptions.  And we're just in the first quarter.

Kurt Felix Drops Out of Heptathlon

Kurt Felix of Boise State has dropped out of the Heptathlon.  He did not run in the final event, the 1,000 meters.  He was well behind Romain Martin of Texas-Arlington, who was having a great meet.  Martin was more than 400 points ahead of Felix when the Bronco star withdrew.
