                BOISE, Idaho - SI.com has announced its 2010 midseason All-America football team and two Boise State University players, Kellen Moore and Jeron Johnson, have been named to the first-team.

                Moore was named the first-team quarterback while Johnson was one of two safeties named to the first squad. 

LSU and Oklahoma also had two players selected to the first-team, while Oregon led the mid-season team with three first-team selections.

                A junior from Prosser, Washington, Moore is the top rated quarterback in the country with an efficiency rating of 190.35.  Moore has completed 105 of 151 passes for 1,567 yards, 16 touchdowns and has only thrown one interception. 

In Moore's last 20 games, which include 14 from last season, he has thrown only four interceptions in 582 pass attempts for a .0068 ratio.  Counting the top 100 quarterbacks in the country, Moore and T.J. Yates of North Carolina are the only two quarterbacks to have thrown only one interception this season.

                Moore was SI.com's first-team All-American selection last year at the end of the season.  He was also named first-team All-American by ESPN.com and CBSSports.com in 2009.

                Johnson leads a Bronco defense which leads the country in total yards allowed (210.17 per-game) and rushing defense (59.33 yards-per-game).  For the third straight season, the senior from Compton, California leads Boise State in total tackles with 33. 

                Boise State returns to action this Tuesday (Oct. 26) for a 6:05 p.m. (MT) kickoff against Louisiana Tech at Bronco Stadium.  The game will be broadcast nationally by ESPN2.
