➡️NUMBER 5 ➡️ Boise State Statue of Liberty, 2007
This one is a package deal, though the focal point is the two-point conversion that won Boise State the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
Trailing by seven and facing a 4th-and-18 with 18 seconds left, the Broncos busted out the hook-and-ladder to perfection. Jared Zabransky fired a strike to Drisan James, who pitched the ball to Jerard Rabb. He scooted 35 yards for a touchdown.
An extra point sent the game to overtime, where Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson scored on the first play. Boise State responded with a touchdown, cutting the lead to one.
Chris Petersen, then the coach of the Broncos, decided to attempt a two-point conversion. He called "Statue Left," a play where Zabransky would fake a screen pass and leave the ball behind his back for Ian Johnson. The running back followed his blocks to pay dirt.
Then Johnson proposed to his girlfriend, Boise State cheerleader Chrissy Popadics, on the field. She said yes.
