Boise St. Dominates La. Tech
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Kellen Moore threw two touchdown passes and caught another on a trick play, helping Boise State (No. 3 BCS, No. 2 AP) beat Louisiana Tech 49-20 on Tuesday night for its 21st consecutive victory.
Moore was 20 of 28 for 298 yards. He found receiver Austin Pettis for a 6-yard touchdown pass and Pettis returned the favor late in the third quarter, throwing to Moore for a 7-yard score.
Tyler Shoemaker also had a 32-yard TD catch and Doug Martin ran for 150 yards on 21 carries for Boise State (7-0, 3-0 Western Athletic Conference).
Martin gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead with a 2-yard in the first and wrapped up the scoring with a 20-yard scamper in the fourth.
Louisiana Tech (3-5, 2-2) and its hurry-up offense rolled up 394 yards against the nation’s top-ranked defense. But the Bulldogs were stung by a series of penalties that either led to Broncos points or spoiled chances to change momentum in the first half.
