Nov. 5, 2011

Kellen Moore
On being atop the all-time wins list…
“Certainly it’s neat. You have a lot of respect for the guys that are on that list. Obviously, I’ve been very fortunate. We’re kind of focused more on the field at the moment.”

On being more of a game than originally thought it would be…
“We’ve always got to go in expecting this situation. They (UNLV) played well. Certainly, we’ve got corrections to make on our side and get better, but the bottom line is we came out with a win. We were able to make some things go in the second half that helped us out. We’ve just got to be more consistent.”

On the slow start for Boise State’s offense in the first half…
“Yeah, a little different than what we’ve been doing for most of this year. For whatever reason, we weren’t executing and missed some opportunities. They were playing well and had a few dialed-up plays in there that they did a good job on us. We just keep moving on.”

On UNLV’s defensive play early…
“Certainly, they were very excited. They were coming with some energy. They made some big plays early and tried to develop some momentum for them, and they carried off of that for awhile.”

On his thoughts on his play today…
“I played alright, nothing spectacular. We made some good plays and we missed on some opportunities. We move on and get better. Look forward to next week.”

On his feelings about the deflected touchdown pass…
“That was a bad one. You learn from that. Disappointed. Just disappointed in yourself to do something stupid like that.”

Head coach Chris Petersen
On being caught on camera after the fake punt and his emotions…
“Well, you know, it is college football. And I think as coaches, you know things can go like that if guys don’t show up with their edge and ready to play their very, very best. And credit to UNLV, those guys played hard. They’ve got a good run game. I thought we were handled fairly well in the first half at the line of scrimmage, on both sides. It took us awhile to wake up and once we did, things went a little better.”

On the difference in the second half…
“You know, I think we kind of settled in. We started running the ball a little bit. I think we ran the ball for 20 yards in the first half and if you do that, with the style that we want to play, it is not going to be good.”

On UNLV playing with the “edge” in the first half…
“If you don’t start fast any team that you play is going to get momentum and it is going to work against us.”

On #7 D.J. Harper (running back) filling in for injured #22 Doug Martin (running back)…
“You know, D.J. is a warrior. We’ve got complete and total confidence in him to do whatever we need to do on offense. We know he is going to make yards. We’ve always said that. He’s very good and making tackles and he is much stronger than he appears. I’m glad he got the rock a lot tonight.”

On Kellen Moore’s play…
“That’s news to me that he threw five touchdowns. It sure didn’t feel like it. I guess we are in Vegas, it’s like five the hard way, I guess. Isn’t that what they say? It really was. We were just not clicking the way we need to be. It was surprising because I thought we practiced pretty well. Thursday was one of the better Thursday practices we’ve had on offense all season. If you don’t bang and get in the rhythm of that run game, it is going to affect you.”
