    West ended Mora’s 11-game unbeaten streak, 45-29. Bustos put together one of her better recent games in scoring a game-high 19 points.

    It’s the second year in a row that WLV is responsible for ending an undefeated start by Mora.

    Two young superstar quarterbacks in the making squaring off in Seattle. Wes Welker against the team that wanted him no longer, and Anquan Boldin taking his new team on another championship run. A sideshow with Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh that might be worth the price of admission by itself.
