HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes and No. 15 Boise State rolled to an easy win, beating Southern Mississippi 24-7 on Saturday night with a scoring flurry in the second quarter.
Moore hit 16 of 20 passes for 144 yards and all three touchdowns in the first half, connecting twice with Austin Pettis, for the efficient Broncos (5-0). The redshirt freshman quarterback continued to show an uncanny ability to make the right decisions despite his youth.
He came into the game completing 72 percent of his passes and hit 70 percent (21-of-30) against Southern Miss (2-4), which has lost three straight games for the first time since 2004.
With Moore guiding them, the Broncos look like they could be BCS busters again.
