INSIDE SPORTS SECTION: The NBA season tips off tonight
Charlie Litchield/IPT 
Despite his limited time on the feld thus ar, Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore, above, still has produced big numbers. He has completed 69.5 percent o his passes (105-151) or 1,567 yards and 16 touchdowns against one interception. He is the nation’s most efcient passer, with a rating o 190.3, and is a serious Heisman Trophy candidate. ESPN’s 2010 Heisman Watch has Moore ranked second behind Auburn quarterback CameronNewton. Fellow quarterbacks Joe Southwick, below, and Mike Coughlin have beneftted rom the Broncos’ success, as each have played in our games this season.
Passing time
Heisman Trophy candidate Kellen Moore has played in the ourth quarter twice this season and he’s not alone. Boise State’s successis costing starters playing time and statistics, but the Broncosstandouts know the rest is needed.

If the Boise State coaches had their wish, Crawford would bethe big guy on the sidelines this year.The 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive end transferred fromBakersfield (Calif.) College this summer, and had aredshirt year available. He was likely bound for one,until Darren Koontz was lost for the year with abroken foot.“We would’ve loved to redshirt him — but wealso knew by the end of this season, he wasgoing to be a force,” coach Chris Petersen said.Pressed into duty, Crawford has been aforce when the second unit is on thefield — he leads the team with sixtackles for loss, has 2.5 sacks andhas recovered a fumble.“The plays are coming a lot easierto me, just happy I’m understandingthings now,” Crawford said. “Against Virginia Tech, honestly, my knowl-edge of the plays wasn’t there.”Throughout most of fall camp, theCanadian import did not know if hewould play or not, but wanted tomake an impact, if at all possible,which he certainly has.“I wasn’t going to be mad,”Crawford said. “... I definitely wantedto get some time this year. I knewthis would be a big year for BoiseState and wanted to be a part of it.”

LOUISIANATECH COACH SONNY DYKES
Years:
1st season
Career record:
3-4
Record at La. Tech:
3-4
Noteworthy:
Dykes wasthe offensive coordinatorat Arizona from 2007-09.His father, Spike, won82 games at Texas Techfrom 1987-99.
On Boise State:
“Ithink what reallystands out about themis that they are a teamthat plays best collec-tivelly on both sides ofthe ball. The chemistryand the coaching iswhat sets them apart.”
PLAYER TO WATCH
LOUISIANA TECH DE:MATT BROHA
 A starter since he came off his redshirt in 2008, Broha entered this season with 5.5 sacks in 25career games.Seven games into 2010, Broha has six sacks — the third-most among WAC players this season.“I don’t want to say we’re surprised, but I think Matt has exceeded our expectations,” Bulldogscoach Sonny Dykes said. “He’s just a consistent, hard worker, and that’spaying off.”Broha has nine tackles for loss, fifth in the conference and topsamong Louisiana Tech defenders.“I hit the weight room pretty hard this offseason, and I think that,coupled with our new defensive style, I get to be on theattack a lot,” Broha said.The Bulldogs have racked up eight sacks intheir last three games, and will facetheir toughest test of the year in theBroncos, who have yielded just onesack.“They have a great line, andthat’s great they’ve only givenup one, but we’re experiencedand have done pretty welllately,” Broha said.“That’ll be a greatbattle.”

FIVEKEYS
For Boise State
1.
 
Air it out.
The Bulldogs have atalented deensive line, anchored byMatt Broha and Mason Hitt, but thepass deense is a liability. La. Tech isgiving up 296.7 ypg through the air.Kellen Moore’s numbers grow evenlarger tonight.
2.
 
Three and out.
Louisiana Techwill try and wear down the Broncoswith a no-huddle attack. I the Bron-cos can keep gains to a minimumand knock down passes, they’ll givetheir own high-octane oense plentyo good scoring opportunities.
3.
 
Diversify.
In their three wins, theBulldogs have made oes becomeone-dimensional. Mix in the deeprunning back group with the aerialattack, and it’ll be 21 straight winsor Boise State.
4.
 
Sense of urgency.
The Broncoshave been outstanding in the frsthal this season, and i they can doit again today, they’ll quickly havethe Bulldogs in a hole they won’t getout rom.

Wrap up.
Coach Chris Petersensaid Louisiana Tech’s oense “turnsyou into bad tacklers.” I theBroncos can prevent second eorts,they’ll keep the Bulldogs’ quick-passing system at bay all night.

BOISE — Kellen Moore is 53rdnationally in completions per game, Jeron Johnson’s 33 tackleslead the team, and Austin Pettishasn’t scored a touchdown in threestraight games. Yet in those three games, theBroncos have won by a combined164-14.During the dominant span, Boi-se State has rested its starters lib-erally, oten putting in the secondteam in the third quarter to play out the rest o the game.“I’m not going to reach thegoals I wanted to,” said Johnson, who had hoped or 100 tackles thisseason. “But I’m healthy. I’ve beenable to rest up — we’re all or it, we’re playing good ootball. I thatcomes at the cost o my goals, I’mfne with it.”For players like Johnson, itmeans not meeting some personalgoals, but it’s hard to complain when the team is ranked No. 2 inthe nation and gathering seriousmomentum.The Broncos have been able toget younger players snaps that they did not see in closer contests.“In the long run, it’s really go-ing to help,” senior nickel Winston Venable said. “For one, a lot o usare well-rested, and second, we’regetting a lot o guys some goodexperience that will pay o in theuture.“I you’re a true team player, you’ve got no problem taking sometime o.” Venable said “some guys wantto be out there more,” but i thereare any players struggling to bal-ance their competitive desires andsitting on the sidelines or the goodo the team, none o them appear to be among the Broncos’ leaders.Pettis’ 4.17 receptions per gameranks him 95th in the nation, put-ting him on pace or about 50 regu-lar-season catches — he had 62 inthe frst 10 games o last season.He has our touchdowns, which hehad in one game last season.“You want to be in there, butthere are still positives to it — youkind o get to save your body a littlebit, and those young guys get a loto experience, because you never know when you’ll need them,” Pet-tis said.No one is sae rom getting thehook, even the Broncos’ biggestname.Moore has not played in theourth quarter since Sept. 25, didnot play at all in the second hal Oct. 16 at San Jose State and saw  just one second-hal series in each o the two games in between.For a quarterback who is a like-ly Heisman Trophy fnalist, Mooreis on pace or 3,134 yards and 32touchdowns at the current rate.O course, coach Chris Petersen ishardly concerned about the bronzestatue o a man in a leather hel-met.“I think he’s promoted himsel,”Petersen said. When some o the Broncos’ o-ensive stars are only playing about60 percent o the game, the eye-popping numbers certainly do notollow, yet the Broncos still are intop fve nationally in scoring o-ense and scoring deense.“There are guys who probably aren’t getting the number o playsthey would have expected, but thatcomes with those type o games,”Moore said. “Doug Martin couldcarry it 30 times i he had to, buthe’s only getting about 10. There’sa lot o guys like that.”The most important numbersor the Broncos are, o course, sixand zero. Wins and losses. Those wins may be by slightly smaller margins in the second hal o theseason, with Boise State acing the WAC’s upper echelon, includingHawaii and Nevada, just outsidethe Associated Press top 25 this week.“We’ve got some big gamescoming up — getting rested up was nice, but I think those days aregone,” Venable said.Petersen said the best part o theblowouts has been getting as many players on the feld as possible, andhe echoed Venable’s words.“That’s a good thing i that hap-pens,” Petersen said. “We’re notcounting on that happening any more ... I think about the guys thatbust their tails every day, week inand week out, that hardly get any time. When we’re able to do that,it’s a good thing.
Broncos see silver lining in blowouts
Greg Kreller/IPT 
Boise State running back Doug Martin averages 12.3 rushes per game, but could easily carry the ball more, according to quarterbackKellen Moore. “Doug Martin could carry it 30 times if he had to, but he’s only getting about 10,” Moore said. “There’s a lot of guys like that.”
Boise State’ startershave received plentyof rest in recent routs
