Oregon Lose Opener At Boise St., 19-8

Sept. 3, 2009

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -Kellen Moore threw for 197 yards and a touchdown, and the 14th-ranked Broncos pushed aside No. 16 Oregon 19-8, shoving aside their biggest obstacle between them and a possible second BCS berth.

D.J. Harper scored on a 1-yard run early in the third quarter and Boise State held on for a shaky final 25 minutes of mistakes and turnovers to record their 50th straight regular season home victory and ruin Chip Kelly's debut as Oregon head coach.

'You know, just emotions getting the best of players, and you know, it was a hard fought game, really proud of our defense,' Petersen said. 'Typical first game, lot of sloppy football, but I thought our defense rose to the occasion and played great.'
