So far amongst the College football standings, there are 6 undefeated teams fighting for a chance to play in the national championship game to highlight their season. Florida, Alabama, TCU, Texas, Cincinnati, and Boise State all are schools that are undefeated as of now on the season and exclaiming that they are the best school this 09 season.

Undoubtedly, with the success that the Gators are having with Tim Tebow breaking almost every SEC QB record that there is, I ask who is the best QB on a national standard?

Well it isn’t the famed Gator that this nation has come to like with his 93 million goggle hits coming after his comments last season after a loss against Miss. St. and he came back with the John 3:16 patches under his eyes. Then who?

Well his name just so happens to be Boise States Freshman QB Kellen Moore, whom was noted as being the 37th ranked best returning player of the season. Through 12 games of the 08 regular season, Moore has thrown for a school record 38 touchdowns with only 3 interceptions to lead the Broncos to a 12-0 record and another WAC title. Moore is yet to lose a regular season game as a starter.


Here is how he compares to Tim Tebow.


Quarterback Rating Leaders

Tim Tebow: 244 attempts 162 completions 2166 yards 17 TD’s 4 ints 160 QB rating

Kellen Moore: 362 attempts 235 completions 3053 yards 38 TD’s 3 ints 168 QB rating


By far has Kellen Moore made it known why he is the national leader when ratings are considered as he only has 5 sacks on the season while Tebow has 25 Both teams are undefeated on the season as well as expecting to playing for a national championship.

Thus far the only difference that the two have is that Tebow has a heisman and a national title to back him. This is Moores second season.  

Despite not having the national exposure Moore seems slightly more compelling as a QB then Tebow.
