Elite 11 Alum of the Week:
Kellen Moore, Sr., Boise State
Tom Hauck/ESPNHSKellen Moore at the 2011 Elite 11
Moore, a 6-0 190 pound senior who was a college counselor at this year's Elite 11, has been playing at an elite level for the past four seasons and only seems to get better each week. One of last year's Heisman Trophy finalists, the lefty from Prosser (Prosser, Wash.) has Boise State once again in the top five after dismantling Fresno State 57-7 last week. In just three quarters of play, Moore was 23-of-31 for 254 yards and three touchdowns. On the year he has completed 74 percent of his attempts and has a touchdown to interception ratio of 17 to 4. Sitting at 5-0, Moore just needs four more victories to become college football's all-time winningest quarterback, passing Colt McCoy.
