FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Thankfully for Colorado State, its first game against Boise State has mercifully come to an end.
It was an all-out Broncos blitz in a 63-13 win, their first conference game in the Mountain West. While talk about the Big East may have overshadowed the day, Boise State made it known it is just as serious about winning this league as it was in the WAC. If Saturday was any indication, they could be on yet another road to domination.
The No. 5 Broncos (6-0) became bowl eligible and racked up more than 700 yards of total offense. There was not much that went unaccomplished on the field. Kellen Moore had four incompletions, threw for 338 yards and four touchdowns before being pulled in the third quarter. Running back Doug Martin hit 200 yards. Tyler Shoemaker not only had 180 yards receiving, he also executed a fake punt to perfection.
Had the starters stayed in the game, Boise State could well have scored 70. In any case, Boise State has now posted back-to-back games in which it has scored 50-plus points. The fewest points the Broncos have scored all year? Thirty against Nevada two weeks ago.
