Boise State QB Kellen Moore Makes All-America

Boise State sophomore quarterback Kellen Moore has been named 1st Team All-American by CBS Sports. Moore is the fourth Bronco to be named to an All-America team in the last six years.

Boise State 's Kellen Moore has been named the quarterback on CBS Sports' All-America college football team.   

Moore has completed 254-of-392 passes (64.8%) for 3,325 yards and a record 39 touchdowns this season, leading Boise State to its second consecutive undefeated regular season.  Moore also guided Boise State to a 12-0 mark last season.  He has thrown just three interceptions this year.  Moore 's interception ratio of .0076% this season would eclipse the 18-year-old record of 00.83% (two out of 239 passes) set by Jeff Mladenich.  He has one more important bowl game remaining, however.  

Moore leads the nation in passing efficiency and is second in TD passes.

Moore now has 3,321 yards of total offense, fifth place all-time at Boise State .  He is also just 135 yards shy of his total as a freshman.

The Bronco sophomore is also in fifth place on the single season passing list.

Oddly, Moore was not a finalist for the Heisman Trophy or the Davey O'Brien award, which goes out annually to the best quarterback in college football. Moore is the fourth Bronco football player to be honored as a 1st Team All-American, following, tackles Daryn Colledge and Ryan Clady and running back Ian Johnson.
