Boise State's Fiesta Bowl Win

This has to be one of the best games ever. For sure one of the most fun to watch. I loved it. There was the classic "underdog" smaller school who went toe-to-toe with the big boys and won. There was the comeback by Oklahoma in the final minutes including the two-point conversion that required three tries to tie the game. There was the interception thrown by Jared Zabransky (who is from nearby Hermiston, OR by the way) for an Oklahoma touchdown the next play after the Sooners tied it. I seriously was going to be very disappointed if it ended this way. There was the awesome Boise State drive to tie the game again and force overtime. This included the 4th-and-18 hook-and-ladder play that worked out flawlessly with just seconds left. There was the great run by Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson to score a touchdown in the first play of overtime. There was the great play Boise State called on fourth down where the quarterback went in motion himself and it was snapped to another player who rolled out and threw a touchdown pass which was required since Oklahoma scored a touchdown. And then there was Boise State going for the two-points to win the game instead of one to tie to go to a second overtime. Not just a great run up the middle or a leaping catch in the end zone but the Statue of Liberty play again executed to perfection to win the game.
A game to make me go hmmm!!!


  • Hmmmmm, indeed! What a matter which side you were on.

    I once lived in Midwest City, OK, and should have wanted OK to win...but I really didn't care.

    What a game!!!!

  • The best finish ever. Better than Flutie's big pass to beat Miami back in the 80's. WOW!
