After Newton's performance in tonight's mythical national championship game, Moore passed the Auburn quarterback for #1 in the land. Moore finished his season with a 26-3 win over #20 Utah and wound up with a 182.63 passing efficiency rating. Newton was just 20-34 for 265 yards and two touchdowns but an interception. Newton thus dropped from a rating of 188.16 to a rating of 182.05.
What does it take to win the title? The Bronco junior completed 273-of-383 passes (71.28%) for 3,845 yards (10.04 yards per attempt) and 35 touchdowns against just six interceptions. Moore's career record as a starter is 38-2 and he helped Boise State finish in the national top ten for the second year in a row and the third time in the last five years.
Congratulations to Boise State's Kellen Moore--the #1 passer in the land!
