Boise State defensive lineman arrested
BOISE, Idaho — A top defensive lineman for Boise State has been arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace.
The Ada County Sheriff’s Office’s website shows 21-yearold David Moa was taken into custody at 2:25 a.m. Saturday by Boise police.
He later was listed as no longer being in custody. Moa is scheduled to appear in court Monday on the misdemeanor charge.
The arrest of the 6-foot-3, 271-pound Moa was first reported by the Idaho Statesman. Details were not immediately available.
“Boise State is aware of the situation involving David Moa,” the school said in a statement. “We take this matter very seriously, and will handle it appropriately and internally, as we do with all conduct-related issues.”
Fame is fleeting
Howard University, the team that pulled the biggest upset in college football history two weeks ago when it beat host UNLV 43-40 as a 44½-point underdog, has had rough going since. On Saturday, it lost its second straight game, this time 68-21 at Richmond. The Spiders’ Kyle Lauletta threw a schoolrecord six touchdown passes.
The UTEP Miners have begun the season with three straight losses for the first time since 2008. Late Friday, Arizona defeated UTEP 63-16 in El Paso. It was the 13th straight loss in the series for the Miners, who play Saturday at New Mexico State.
Back on the job
Rutgers offensive coordinator Jerry Kill returned to the sidelines for the Scarlet Knights’ 65-0 win over Morgan State after suffering a seizure following RU’s game against Eastern Michigan last week.
Kill had stepped down as Minnesota head coach during the 2015 season because of seizures caused by epilepsy. He was released from the hospital Monday.
Twenty-one NFL teams sent representatives to Laramie, Wyo., to watch Wyoming QB Josh Allen play Oregon, the last Power Five team on the Cowboys’ schedule. Even in warmups it is hard not to be impressed by the way the ball effortlessly jumps out of Allen’s hand. Once the game started, though, things went south. He finished 9-for-24 for 64 yards and one interception in a 49-13 defeat.
