2011 Las Vegas Bowl, Arizona State Vs. Boise State Final Score: Broncos Dominate Sun Devils In 56-24 Victory

Kellen Moore closed out his college career as a winner by leading the Boise St. Broncos to a 56-24 victory over the Arizona St. Sun Devils in the 2011 Las Vegas Bowl. He picked up his 50th career victory, an NCAA record that will likely be hard to be challenged. Moore won 94 percent of games he played in and will now look to transition to the pro game.

The Broncos played a sloppy game in the second half, but the Sun Devils were equally as sloppy. Two Moore turnovers results in Arizona State failing to convert on fourth down twice, the second attempt turning into a 100-yard touchdown interception return.

Outside of the fumble and two interceptions, Moore was 23-of-30 for 266 yards and two touchdown passes. But it was running back Doug Martin who had the biggest game. He rushed 30 times for 151 yards and had two total touchdowns. He returned the opening kickoff for a 100-yard touchdown and scored the last Boise State touchdown when he rushed for a two-yard score.

The Broncos improved to 12-1 on the season and the Sun Devils fell to 6-7.

Arizona State Vs. Boise State Halftime Score: Broncos Lead Sun Devils, 28-3, In 2011 Las Vegas Bowl

Boise State Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore is halfway to his 50th career NCAA, as his team leads the Arizona State Sun Devils at halftime, 28-3. Should the Broncos hold on for the win, and there's no reason to doubt they won't, Moore will have an NCAA record that will be nigh impossible to break.

After taking a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, the Broncos didn't let up in the second. After Brock Osweiler lost 20 yards on a drive toward the end of the first quarter, the Broncos began the second with an offense ready to score some more points. Three minutes into the quarter, Moore threw his second touchdown of the game when he found Matt Miller for a two-yard touchdown.

The Sun Devils did get on the board with a 32-yard field goal, but the Broncos answered back in the final two minutes of the half. That last score, however, saw Moore on the sidelines and the Broncos running a trick play. The backup quarterback, Grant Hedrick, took the snap under center and pitched the ball to Matt Miller. Miller then threw a pass to Kyle Efaw for a five-yard touchdown.

Las Vegas Bowl 2011, Arizona State Vs. Boise State: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

The 2011 Las Vegas Bowl kicks off on Thursday night as the Arizona St. Sun Devils face the No. 7 Boise St. Broncos in a match-up that's noticeably lopsided. Boise State failed to make a BCS bowl and ended up in this situation as a result, which has led to some pretty strong responses from the Broncos. 

Boise State finished the season with just a single loss on the year, and that loss only occurred due to a missed field goal by the Broncos as time expired against the TCU Horned Frogs. Arizona State, on the other hand, recently fired its coach, Dennis Erickson after finishing this season with a 6-6 record. He will coach the Sun Devils in this game before giving way to Todd Graham, who unceremoniously informed his Pittsburgh Panthers that he left the job via text message.

Expect the Broncos to try to take out their frustration on the Sun Devils, which should at least be entertaining to watch.
