BOISE, Idaho -- Jeremy Avery ran for three touchdowns, Kellen Moore passed for three more and the defense forced four turnovers to lift No. 4 Boise State to an easy 57-14 victory over Toledo Saturday night.

Moore and the rest of the offense were clicking from the start, scoring on five of their first seven possessions to put the game out of reach early. Boise State (5-0) has now won 19 straight games, the nation's longest winning streak after top-ranked Alabama was upset by No. 19 South Carolina.

Moore was efficient as usual, connecting on 16 of 22 passes for 267 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown to Titus Young. Avery scored twice on 5-yard runs and another on a 12-yard reverse.

The Bronco defense also did its part, forcing five Toledo turnovers. Early in the third quarter, Bronco defensive end Shea McClellin intercepted an Austin Dantin pass and rumbled 36 yards for a touchdown.

Toledo (3-3) had just 278 total yards in losing for the first time on the road this season.
