RUSTON, La. (AP) -Kellen Moore threw for 354 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 5 Boise State survived a brief scare on the road with a 45-35 victory over upstart Louisiana Tech on Friday night.
Tech had pulled within 30-28 early in the fourth quarter on Dennis Morris' leaping catch in the corner of the end zone. The Broncos defense buckled down long enough after that for Boise State to pull away with touchdowns on consecutive drives, the second score coming on Jeremy Avery's 44-yard touchdown run.
Avery finished with 146 yards rushing, while Titus Young caught eight passes for 110 yards and a touchdown for Boise State (9-0, 4-0 Western Athletic Conference).
