BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Kellen Moore tossed three touchdown passes, including a 46-yarder on the final play of the first half, to lead No. 7 Boise State to a 36-14 victory over Wyoming Saturday.

     After getting off to a sluggish start, Moore and the Broncos (10-1, 5-1) rattled off 36 straight points to put the game away and secure a second-place finish in their first year as a member of the Mountain West Conference.

     Moore was 24-of-36 for 279 yards and he threw touchdowns of 17 and 10 yards in the second half. But it was his last-ditch touchdown toss on the final play of the first half that gave his team the spark it needed. After being flushed from the pocket, Moore rolled left then heaved a pass that was deflected by a Wyoming defender near the goal line and dropped into the hands of Matt Miller to give the Broncos a 13-7 lead.

     Wyoming (7-4, 4-2) scored first when linebacker Luke Anderson picked off Moore's pass early in the first quarter and ran 29 yards for a touchdown. The Cowboys were held to 191 total yards and 78 yards passing.
