The Boise St. Broncos defense has stood stout in the first half, keeping the Fresno St. Bulldogs off the board at halftime. The Broncos are winning, 37-0, and have held the Bulldogs to just 191 yards of total offense.
Kellen Moore has helped put up 18 points for the Broncos with his three touchdown passes. Moore threw his first one during the first quarter before firing off two in the second. He hit Geraldo Boldewijn for an 18-yard touchdown pass on the team's first drive of the second quarter and then found him a second time with just 20 seconds left in the quarter.
Boldewijn had been held out of the first four games, but he's already adapted after all that time off the field. He has three receptions for 33 yards. Moore is 21-of-29 for 243 yards and three touchdowns. The other touchdowns came on a 25-yard end-around by Mitch Burroughs in the first quarter and a six-yard run by D.J. Harper in the second.
Fresno State appeared to have its offense ready to put the ball into the end zone, but quarterback Derek Carr fumbled the ball at Boise's 16-yard line and turned the ball over. That eventually led to Moore's third touchdown pass.
