Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore may not have won the Heisman Trophy, but he beat Cam Newton.

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!
