The biggest question concerning Boise State's quarterback situation heading into the 2010 season is what can junior Kellen Moore (6-0, 186) do to improve upon exceptional freshman and sophomore campaigns with the Broncos? After compiling the most impressive freshman year by any quarterback in school history, Moore followed it up with a record setting season in 2009.
Moore broke the Boise State record for single season touchdown throws (39), while also setting the Football Bowl Subdivision record for pass attempt to interception ratio at 0.69% (3 of 431). He finished the season ranked No. 2 nationally for pass efficiency rating (161.65) and touchdown passes thrown. Moore finished the year with a 64.3 competion percentage (277-of-431) with 3,536 passing yards.
Moore's outstanding sophomore season earned him WAC Offensive Player of the Year honors, as well as first team All-American honors by ESPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com. He was also named third team All-American by the Associated Press before finishing seventh in the 2009 Heisman Trophy voting.
Providing back up for Moore this fall will be senior Michael Coughlin (6-5, 218), who saw action in eight games for the Broncos in 2009. Coughlin completed 12-of-19 pass attempts for 50 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Boise State will also add a pair of redshirt freshmen to the quarterback mix this year in Joe Southwick (6-1, 182) and Mike Tamburo (5-11, 183). Southwick had an exceptional first year with the Broncos as he earned 2009 Scout Team Offensive Player of the Year honors.
