Boise State 43, Oklahoma 42 (2007 Fiesta Bowl)

This is a game that also frequently appears on lists ranking the greatest college football games ever played. It was that exciting on its own even without the added significance of a school from a non-power conference beating a traditional power like Oklahoma, which was seen as one of the nation’s best teams that season. Boise State jumped to a 28-10 lead in the third quarter, only to watch the Sooners rattle off 25 unanswered points to take a seven-point lead. The Broncos used a wild hook and lateral play to score the tying touchdown in the final seconds of regulation and an even more bold ‘Statue of Liberty’ run play for the game-winning two-point conversion in overtime. Boise State (13-0) was the one and only undefeated team in Division I football that year.
