***Updated with Video***
Boise State, the underdog, defeated the Oklahoma Sooners in not only an upset but in overtime at that. BSU led the entire game until the last quarter. But they didn’t give up or get demoralized when they fell behind. They fought hard and scored a touchdown in the last 7 seconds of the game to tie it up and send it to overtime.
Oklahoma scored first in overtime. I thought it was over, but Boise State came right back scored. An exciting game culminated into an incredible final play of the game. BSU quarterback Jared Zabransky faked a pass to the right and handed the ball off behind him to another player who then ran it in to the left for a 2 point conversion to win the game.
Here’s the recap from Fox Sports.
Tom at Blogical Conclusions saw the game too and has declared himself a Boise State fan. He also says this game proves that it’s time to get rid of the BCS and have a playoff system.
I forgot to mention that a BSU player, after the concluding an interview with a sportscaster, got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, a BSU cheerleader. It was very sweet and a great way to end a fantastic game.
