BOISE, Idaho Freshman Kellen Moore connected on a 51-yard touchdown pass to Vinny Perretta on the lone big offensive play in Boise State’s first scrimmage of fall camp. Defensively sophomore linebacker Derrell Acrey provided the defense’s biggest play stripping Moore of the ball on a blitz to force the only turnover of the scrimmage.

Junior Nick Lomax completed 7-of-9 passes for 68 yards, while sophomore Mike Coughlin connected on 5-of-8 passes for 35 yards. Freshman Drew Hawkins was 5-of-9 for 49 yards.

Freshman Chris Potter led the Broncos with five catches, while freshman Chandler Koch had a team-high 61 yards receiving on three catches.
