Boise runs win streak to 21

By Associated Press

POSTED:


BOISE, Idaho » Boise State got caught flat-footed on an onside kick and fumbled away another kickoff. It almost had another costly fumble, and Kellen Moore threw his second interception of the season.

And the Broncos just kept rolling.

Moore threw two touchdown passes and caught another on a trick play, helping No. 2 Boise State beat Louisiana Tech 49-20 last night for its 21st consecutive victory.

The Broncos (7-0, 3-0 Western Athletic Conference) got a big boost from Doug Martin, who had 21 carries for a career-best 150 yards and two scores, and the nation's top-ranked defense. The WAC powerhouse had four sacks, forced two fumbles and stopped Louisiana Tech on fourth down in Boise State territory three different times.

Boise State extended the longest active winning streak in major college football with another convincing victory as it tries to keep pace in the BCS standings despite a mediocre schedule.

Just as he has all season, coach Chris Petersen refused to weigh in on how yet another blowout will fare in the minds of voters and computers.

"We're only paying attention to ourselves. We're not worried about what everybody else says about us," said Petersen.

Bowl in Washington, D.C., gets name change

The bowl game in the nation's capital has a new name -- the Military Bowl.

Officials announced yesterday that the game formerly known as the EagleBank Bowl has a new sponsor and charity partner. The official name will be "The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman" and will benefit the USO.

The bowl already had a strong military tie. Navy played in the inaugural game in 2008, and both Navy and Army will be featured in future years if they are bowl eligible.
