OK, I thought BSU lost the game twice. Man, did they prove me wrong. Like Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'til it's over." I loved the decision to go for two in the first overtime, then they went with the Statue of Liberty and faked out the house to win it. Unbelievable. To top the whole thing off, one of the BSU players asks his cheerleader girlfriend to marry him and she says "Yes" on camera. How can you not love that?
Boise State just stuck it to the B(C)S. They're 13-0 and should have been in the National Championship game.
Just one more reason to have a Playoff System to replace the B(C)S.
I went to bed around midnight and I couldn't turn it off. This was definitely worth staying up to watch, but man will I pay for this tomorrow. I'm NOT getting up at 5:15am to lift. I'm going to wait until after my shift at the Fitness Center at 11:30am.
Thank-you Boise State. That was incredible.
Update 1/2/07 @ 1:41am: I have to mention what preceded the overtime heroics, because the game summary on Fox doesn't do it justice. Oklahoma State tied the game with about 1:25 left in the game with a touchdown and two-point conversion of their own. Then, OU used a "pick 6" and extra-point to go up by a touchdown. That's where I thought it was all over the first time. Then, BSU scores with 7 seconds left on a hook and ladder play, on 4th down, to tie the game and send it into overtime. OU's Peterson scored on the first play of overtime off tackle and beat everybody to the corner with his 4.2-4.3 speed. That's where I thought it was over for BSU, because I thought that was such a quick score it would take the life out of them. Not so fast, my friend. They got 6 and went for the win right away. What a gamble, nobody else would've had the guts to do that.
