Boise State Vs UNLV
November 6, 2011 by staff
Boise State Vs UNLV, Kellen Moore threw five touchdown passes to become college football’s winningest quarterback and No. 5 Boise State brushed off a first-half scare from UNLV in a 48-21 victory Saturday night.
Moore threw two touchdowns each to Tyler Shoemaker and Matt Miller, racking up 224 yards through the air on 18-of-31 passing despite leaving the game early in the fourth quarter.
UNLV (2-6, 1-2 Mountain West Conference) matched the Broncos’ first two touchdowns, but a pass interference call close to halftime set up Boise State’s go-ahead score.
The victory gave Moore 46 career wins, one more than former Texas star Colt McCoy.
Moore, in his fourth year as Boise State’s starting quarterback, is 46-2, tops all-time among FBS quarterbacks in winning percentage (95.8 percent). Stanford’s Andrew Luck is second at 85.3 percent (29-5).
Boise State (8-0, 3-0) pulled away from UNLV during the second half, as Moore found Shoemaker streaking past UNLV’s secondary in the middle of the field for a 51-yard touchdown with 8:37 left in the third quarter.
On its next possession, the Broncos faked a punt on fourth-and-8, snapping the ball to J.C. Percy and letting him run 20 yards before he was tackled at the UNLV 31-yard line.
Shoemaker then gave Moore his fifth touchdown as the fourth quarter began by managing to catch a ball that had been deflected in the end zone by a UNLV defender.
DJ Harper and Drew Wright added rushing touchdowns for the Broncos in the fourth quarter.
During the first half, the Broncos looked nothing like the 41-point favorites Las Vegas casinos thought they were. Two of their three first-half touchdowns were set up by UNLV mistakes.
