Broncos Shutout RedHawks, 48-0

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore threw four touchdown passes, including a pair to Titus Young, as No. 12 Boise State rolled to a 48-0 victory Saturday night over a young and struggling Miami, Ohio team still searching for its first points of the season.

The Broncos (2-0) were never really challenged by the rebuilding RedHawks (0-2), who were shut out 42-0 in last week's opener against Kentucky.

Moore was 16-of-26 passing for 307 yards, including a 54-yard TD pass to Young in the third quarter. Moore also threw touchdowns to Austin Pettis and Tyler Shoemaker before heading for the bench late in the third quarter with Boise State up 34-0.

The Broncos offense, held to 19 points last week against Oregon, got on track late in the first half when Moore threw a 25-yard TD in the final seconds of the half. The scoring drive was set up when Pettis broke through the Miami protection to block a punt, giving the offense the ball at the Miami 49 with 31 seconds left in the first half.

Boise State scored on its next two possessions in the second half then let the defense do the rest.

The Broncos outgained the RedHawks 441 to 197, and D.J. Harper led Boise State's running game with 89 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries. Young led Boise State's receivers with six catches for 114 yards.

The Bronco defense held Miami to just 41 yards rushing and intercepted four passes. So far this season, the stingy Bronco defense has allowed just 8 points and just 308 total yards in two games.

The RedHawks stayed close early, and managed to move the ball at times. But Miami failed to sustain drives after getting the first two or three first downs, and a second quarter interception by Daniel Raudabaugh killed a drive in Boise territory when Miami trailed by only 14-0.

Raudabaugh was 21-of-35 passing for 155 yards and threw two of the four interceptions.

Moore threw his first touchdown pass on Boise State's second possession, a 17-yard strike to Pettis, who finished with four catches for 115 yards. Moore set up the score three plays earlier by hitting Pettis streaking down the sideline for 65 yards.

Boise State junior kicker Kyle Brotzman missed an extra point attempt after the third touchdown, the first missed PAT of his career and snapped a string of 118 straight.
