Moore, Boise State Set All-Time NCAA Records

As often as Boise State passes, you would expect a few interceptions. Following the Fiesta Bowl victory over #3 TCU, the Broncos finished the season with just three interceptions. Quarterback Kellen Moore broke the individual record and Boise State shattered the team mark for the lowest interception ratio in colelge football history.

Kellen Moore and Boise State set new NCAA all-time college football records for the lowest interception ratio in history. Moore threw just three interceptions in 431 attempts, not only breaking Jeff Mladenich's school record of .82% (two interceptions in 239 attempts in 1991) but the existing all-time collegiate record for a minimum of 350 attempts. Marquel Blackwell of South Florida held the mark with three interceptions in 403 attempts in 2002 (.74%) but Moore has surpassed it.

Perhaps even more impressive is that Boise State threw just three interceptions as a team all season. The Broncos shattered the existing NCAA record with a miniscule .66% interception ratio. That beats both the record for a minimum of 400 attempts held by Bowling Green (4 INT's in 472 attempts in 2004) as well as the all-time mark of .84% held by Fresno State (3 picks in 359 attempts in 1999).

Boise State had set three modern records, for being the highest-scoring team over a ten-year period, and in wins for eight-year and ten-year periods.

These two, however, are the first all-time marks set by the Bronco football team.
