HONORING THE PAST: Kellen Moore - 6:27 p.m. MT

When there were 22 days left until kickoff, it seemed obvious that we would feature Doug Martin. The same went for yesterday when we reached No. 12. And today, with 11 days remaining, it's time to take a look back at Kellen Moore, who wore No. 11 from 2008-11.
