Moore dominates non-AQ Heisman Watch
By Andrea Adelson
Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore outdid himself this weekend against Hawaii. He threw for a career-high 507 yards and completed 81 percent of his passes in three quarters of a 42-7 win over the Warriors.
He also became the school's all-time leader with 29 200-yard games and 85 touchdown pass. Moore is just a junior. All of that certainly is enough to keep him high in the Heisman discussion, even though he finds himself behind Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and Oregon running back LaMichael James.
Still, Moore leads the nation in passing efficiency with a mark of 192.38, and is also the country’s active leader in the statistical category (166.22). He drew praise from Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes on the WAC coaches call Monday. Dykes compared Moore to former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner. What impresses him most about Moore? His poise.
"He doesn't panic. Ever," Dykes said.
