Victory from the Jaws of Defeat

The Tale of Three Flags That Didn't Rovin

Boise State was to have upset the Sooners on New Years Eve day and then..........."two flags" showed up to bite the Broncos in the ass. Both plays were questionable and flagrant in the last two minutes of a game played without the STRIPES involved.

(didn't ya luv the "third flag" (against the Sooners) that attempted to defer their attention?)

But just when Bronco's fans thought the dream was only that---a dream, and our buddies in the stripes had taken the dream away, these kids proved they wanted it more by bringing out the magic bag:

In one of the most dramatic finishes in BCS history, the Sooners and the Broncos combined for 22 points in the final 86 seconds of regulation.Boise State blew an 18-point lead midway through the third quarter, then twice rallied from seven-point deficits."Yeah, another day at the office, huh?" said Boise State coach Chris Petersen, who remains undefeated as a head coach.The Broncos appeared to be finished when Oklahoma cornerback Marcus Walker intercepted Zabransky's pass and returned it 33 yards for a touchdown to put the Sooners ahead 35-28 with 1:02 remaining."It would have been easy to give up on us with a minute left, but we had a lot of magic left," Zabransky said. (Full Story)

And then the score was tied at 35 apiece!

It's overtime and it still feels tainted.

THE END?..........................NO........the Sooners score first in overtime and it takes Boise State a 4th and 4 on the goal and then scores two of the finest plays seen in college football......EVER!

(the first touchdown was called by the backup quarterback)

And now they think they deserve a shot at Ohio St.

This one has to go in the books as one of the greatest college football game in history.

Take a Bow Broncos..............u deserve it............. 13 and 0

Update: Fox Sports has vidio highlights of all four quarters and overtime HERE
