Sure, college football fans can debate whether or not Boise State deserves to be in the national title conversation. But, when it comes to Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore’s Heisman hype, there’s no debate that it’s justified.
Moore continues to put up quality offensive numbers weekly, and last Friday was no different, as he completed 23 of 31 passes for 254 yards and three scores in Boise State’s 57-7 win over Fresno State.
Unfortunately for Moore, his statistics—as impressive as they will be—are going to be considered inflated by some Heisman voters, given how Moore and the Broncos will continue to feast on a weak Mountain West Conference.
There is perhaps one team who will determine Moore’s Heisman fate: Georgia. If Moore’s fans want to see him take home the Heisman, they will need to root for the Bulldogs down the stretch.
Moore dismantled Georgia in the opening week, and if Georgia keeps winning, then it will further validate his ability to shine against an elite opponent.
But, if Georgia falters down the stretch, then Moore’s candidacy won’t have much credibility behind it.
