|Heisman Trophy finalist Kellen Moore anchors|
the Broncos potent offense.
Kellen Moore has been one of the elite players in College Football since he stepped on campus in Boise his freshman year. Moore has lost only two games while being under center for the Broncos (TCU in '08, Nevada '10) and looks to have another undefeated season like he did in 2009. Moore's personal achievements culminated last season when he was selected as one of the four finalists for the Heisman Trophy Award.
Moore dominated in almost every passing category last season, ranking 1st in passer rating, 6th in passing yards, 3rd in completion percentage 4th in touchdowns and all while throwing only 6 interceptions. Last season wasn't a one time thing either. The lefty has thrown for over 3,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in all three seasons. Despite all of these accomplishments Kellen Moore has been one of the most humble characters off the field, not getting into any trouble and always having time to talk to the press. Moore looks to continue his amazing career this season even with the schedule being more difficult this upcoming season.

This upcoming season maybe the best shot in years for the Broncos to make that title run, barring any Kyle Brotzman like moments. Many analysts, coaches, fans, even college presidents (looking at you Ohio St.) look down on Boise St as an elite program. Over the past decade they have continued to prove those doubters wrong and have turned themselves into a Top 25 program year in and year out and it looks like they wont be going away for a long time. Sooner or later they will break that barrier and with Kellen Moore under center and Chris Petersen at command I could see that happening this season.
