Broncos keep rolling along
By Andrea Adelson
FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- New conference, no problem for Boise State.
The Broncos rolled to a 63-13 lead after three quarters thanks to their usual high-powered offense leading the way. Kellen Moore went 26-of-30 for 338 yards with four touchdown passes before being pulled from the game with 5:11 to go in the third quarter. He now has 120 career touchdown passes, No. 5 in NCAA history and one behind Ty Detmer of BYU. Consider he has only played in one full game this season -- in the opener against Georgia.
Meanwhile, Tyler Shoemaker had 180 yards receiving and two touchdowns, and Doug Martin ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Seven of the Broncos' nine scoring drives lasted under 2 minutes.
The defensive line harassed and pressured Colorado State quarterback Pete Thomas, who had only 100 yards passing and an interception. The Rams were 0-of-10 on third-down conversions through three quarters.
