BSU's Kellen Moore Becomes FBS Winningest QB in Broncos' 48-21 Win at UNLV
Nov. 6, 2011
LAS VEGAS (AP) - 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.
DJ Harper and Drew Wright added rushing touchdowns for the Broncos (8-0, 3-0) in the fourth quarter.
