Moore and Brotzman Named WAC Players of the Week

Boise State University quarterback Kellen Moore and place kicker Kyle Brotzman have been named Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Players of the Week following the Bronco's 33-30 win over Virginia Tech (Sept. 6).

Moore won the offensive award after throwing three touchdown passes, including one with 1:09 remaining in the game to give Boise State its final margin of victory. Moore completed 23 of 38 passes for 215 yards and no interceptions. Trailing 30-26, Moore led the Broncos to a score in the final minutes by completing four of five passes for 56 yards and the winning 13-yard pass to Austin Pettis.

Brotzman made two of three field goals and punted twice for a 45.0-yard average. He made a 47-yard field goal late in the second quarter, which was the longest field goal by a WAC player this past weekend. He also added a 52-yard punt late in the fourth quarter that backed Virginia Tech up to their own seven-yard line.

The Broncos are off this coming weekend before traveling to the University of Wyoming on Sept. 18 (Saturday) to face the Cowboys in a 6:00 p.m. (MT) contest.
