And a little conference will lead them...

For those waking up this morning and turning on ESPN and seeing the score of the Fiesta Bowl, you may be shocked by the score. But anyone who watched the game will say the same thing have, "you don't understand, the score still doesn't do justice to how great a game it was."

When it comes on ESPN Classic this week, and I am telling you it will, if you like college football in the least, you have to watch this game. Pat Forde of ESPN.com writes a great piece about the Cinderella story Broncos.

The roller coaster of emotions in the last five minutes of the game and the overtime were just astounding. I have had people calling and emailing to talk about the game and ask if I stayed up to 1:30 A.M. ET to watch the end. I am so glad I did.

For those who haven't seen it - two of the greatest gadget plays EVER run by Boise State. Wasn't incredible that they worked, was incredible that they worked on a Bob Stoops defense.

And to top it all of Ian Johnson of Boise State asked his cheerleader girlfriend to marry him on Fox after the win. What would he had done if they had lost?

Good for him and good for them. Odds are that this game is 10 times better than the one we will see in the same building next Monday night.
