Kellen Moore threw for 354 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 5 Boise State survived a brief scare on the road with a 45-35 victory over upstart Louisiana Tech on Friday night at Ruston, La.

Louisiana Tech had pulled to within 30-28 early in the fourth quarter on Dennis Morris' leaping catch in the corner of the end zone.

The Broncos' defense buckled down after that for Boise State (9-0, 4-0 Western Athletic Conference) to pull away with touchdowns on consecutive drives, the second score coming on Jeremy Avery's 44-yard touchdown run.
