BOISE, Idaho (AP) Kellen Moore threw three touchdown passes, including a last-ditch 46-yarder on the final play of the first half, and Doug Martin rushed for two scores to lead No. 7 Boise State to a 36-14 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.
The Broncos got off to a lackluster start, but Moore provided his team with all the spark it needed when he fired a long touchdown pass to Matt Miller as time expired in the second quarter.
The Broncos (10-1, 5-1 Mountain West Conference) scored 23 straight points in the second half and the defense shut down a Wyoming offense that had been averaging 417 yards per game and locked up second place in the league.
Moore was 24-of-36 for 279 yards and Boise State rolled up 479 total yards. Martin rushed for 153 yards on 26 carries, including a 2-yard TD run that tied the game 7-7 with 1:10 left in the first half.
But the Cowboys (7-4, 4-2) failed to run out the clock, punted and left Moore with 8 seconds.
With 1 second left, Moore was flushed from the pocket, rolled left and heaved a pass toward the goal line. The ball was deflected at the goal line by Cowboys defender Tashaun Gipson and fell into the hands of Miller, who was lying flat on his back in the end zone just beyond the goal line.
The Broncos missed the extra point, but went into the locker room with a 13-7 lead and never looked back.
The Broncos held Wyoming without a first down on three straight possessions in the third quarter.
The Cowboys came into the game having won four of the last five and were playing for second place, a goal that seemed unlikely when they were picked to finish near the bottom of the conference at the start of the season.
But the offense failed to get on track and was held to just 191 total yards. Brett Smith was 17 for 25 for 78 yards and one interception. He threw an 8-yard TD pass to Josh Doctson late in the fourth quarter.
Wyoming controlled the game early and got on the board first when linebacker Luke Anderson picked off Moore's pass early in the first quarter and ran 29 yards for a touchdown.
Boise State wraps up its season at home next Saturday against New Mexico. Wyoming finishes next week by traveling to Colorado State.
