Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore celebrates after catching a 7-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter on a trick play.

BOISE, Idaho — Quarterback Kellen Moore had two touchdown passes and caught one, helping No. 2 Boise State beat Louisiana Tech 49-20 on Tuesday for its 21st consecutive win.

The Broncos broke Miami's record for consecutive home wins, earning their 59th straight at Bronco Stadium. UM's streak ran from Nov. 25, 1989, to Sept. 24, 1994, a loss to Washington.

Moore was 20-of-28 for 298 yards. He found receiver Austin Pettis for a 6-yard touchdown, and Pettis returned the favor in the third quarter, throwing to Moore for a 7-yard score.

Receiver Tyler Shoemaker had a 32-yard touchdown catch, and running back Doug Martin ran for 150 yards on 21 carries for the Broncos (7-0, 3-0 Western Athletic Conference).

Martin made it 7-0 with a 2-yard run in the first and had a 20-yard touchdown run in the fourth.

Louisiana Tech (3-5, 2-2) and its hurry-up offense rolled up 394 yards against the nation's top-ranked defense. But a series of penalties led to Broncos points or spoiled chances to change momentum in the first half.

Cincinnati: Quarterback Zach Collaros (bruised left knee) didn't participate in team drills and could miss Saturday's game against Syracuse. He was hurt in a loss to USF on Friday.

Colorado: Quarterback Tyler Hansen had a procedure done on his ruptured spleen after being injured in a loss to Texas Tech on Saturday.

Kansas: Quarterback Quinn Mecham is expected to start against Iowa State on Saturday with Jordan Webb (shoulder) and Kale Pick (concussion) likely out. Receiver D.J. Beshears and running back Deshaun Sands will serve one-game suspensions for unspecified violations of team rules.

Maryland: Offensive tackle Pete DeSouza remains hospitalized with two broken legs after being involved in a motor scooter accident last week.

Mississippi State: Linebacker Chris Hughes was suspended one game by the SEC for his hit to the head of UAB receiver Frantrell Forrest during Saturday's win. The conference ruled Forrest was a defenseless player.

North Carolina: Cornerback Kendric Burney has been cleared to play against William & Mary on Saturday. He recently completed a six-game suspension issued by the NCAA for receiving improper benefits.

Notre Dame: Nose guard Ian Williams (left MCL) will miss 4-6 weeks.

Oklahoma: Coach Bob Stoops stood by his decision to punt with less than 21/2 minutes left and the Sooners trailing 36-27 at Missouri on Saturday. He said the polls were on his mind at the time. "I've never done it before, but I thought, 'You know what? There's still a bunch of games to be played. Who knows what can happen?' … Some people don't see the game, only look at the score, as they vote. Right or wrong, that's what I did."

Oklahoma state: Receiver Justin Blackmon was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI complaint in Carrollton, Texas. His status with the team was unclear.

Penn State: Quarterback Rob Bolden needs more tests today on a possible head injury suffered against Minnesota to determine if he'll be available to play Saturday against Michigan.

Purdue: Quarterback Rob Henry (finger) could miss Saturday's game at Illinois. The Boilermakers already lost Robert Marve, a former Plant High star, for the season to an ACL injury.

Tennessee: Quarterback Matt Simms (sprained left knee) says he will play Saturday against South Carolina.

Wisconsin: Right tackle Josh Oglesby will be out 3-4 months with a knee injury.

Bowl change: The Military Bowl will be Dec. 29 in Washington, D.C., replacing the EagleBank Bowl.

  1. Bucs journal: Kicker Nick Folk has up and downs against Jaguars


    JACKSONVILLE — If the Bucs had hoped for a drama-free night in their kicking game, they'll have to wait another week.

    Bucs kicker Nick Folk celebrates one of his two made field goals against the Jaguars, but he also misses a field goal and has an extra point blocked.
  2. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
  3. Rays journal: Archer has strong outing, with two mistakes

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
