Fiesta Bowl Best Bowl Game Ever?

Fiesta BowlThere is no way anyone could predict the matchup between Boise State and Oklahoma would produce the fireworks that took place last night in the Fiesta Bowl. Cinderella Boise jumped out to a 28-10 lead midway through the third quarter only to watch the lead melt away to nothing with under two minutes to go in the game. Jared Zabransky then took the field to try and lead the Broncos down the field for a possible win, but instead threw an interception that Oklahoma returned for a touchdown to go up 35-28 with a 1:02 left in the game. I thought this surely would have broke the hearts of Boise State, but these guys are true fighters. It all came down to a 4th and 16 when Zabransky hooked up on a 50-yard hook-and-ladder play to Drisan James pitching it off to Jerard Rabb for a touchdown with seven seconds left to miraculously tie the game.

Star tailback Ian Johnson for the Broncos even got engaged on national TV to one of the cheerleaders after the game. WOW!
