                BOISE, Idaho - Two more Football Bowl Subdivision All-America teams have been announced and Nate Potter, Matt Miller and Kellen Moore have pickup more postseason awards for Boise State.

                Potter received first-team All-America honors from Yahoo Sports and second-team honors from SI.com.  Miller was named second-team freshman All-America by Yahoo Sports, while Moore received honorable mention All-America honors from SI.com.

                A redshirt senior from Boise (Timberline HS), Potter's selection by Yahoo Sports marks the third time this postseason he has received first-team All-America honors.  CBSSports.com and the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) earlier named Potter to their All-America first teams.  Along with his second-team award from SI.com, Potter also received second-team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Foundation.

                Potter has also been recognized for his work in the classroom this year when he was named to the Capital One Academic All-America first-team. 

                Miller, a redshirt freshman from Helena, Mont. (Capital HS), set Boise State freshman records in all three major receiving categories this season with 58 receptions for 647 yards and eight touchdowns. 

                The NCAA record holder for most wins in a career for a starting quarterback at 49, Moore was recently named the Quarterback of the Year by the Touchdown Club of Columbus (Ohio).  A redshirt senior from Prosser, Wash. (Prosser HS), Moore was the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year in 2011, and was a finalist for the Maxwell Award (Outstanding College Player) and the Unitas Award (Outstanding College Quarterback). 

                This season Moore has completed 300 of 405 passes for 3,507 yards and 41 touchdowns.  With one game remaining in his collegiate career, Moore is second all-time in the NCAA for career touchdown passes with 140, and fifth all-time in career passing yards with 14,374.

                Boise State (11-1) completes its 2011 season on Dec. 22 (Thursday) at the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas when it faces Arizona State (6-6).  Kickoff is set for 5:06 p.m. (PT).
