The game of the decade began as a rout. Boise State led Big 12 champ Oklahoma by 18 in the third quarter, and the Broncos seemed ready to cruise to a historically significant but relatively unexciting win. But Oklahoma roared back, taking a 35-28 lead on Marcus Walker's interception return for a touchdown with 1:02 left. Then came the Circus. That's the name of the play Boise ran on fourth-and-18 from the 50, when Jared Zabransky hit Drisan James at the 35, and James pitched to Jerad Rabb, who crossed the goal line with seven seconds to go. After Adrian Peterson scored to give Oklahoma the lead in overtime, the Broncos answered on a halfback pass. Not content to play a second OT, coach Chris Peterson called Statue, the Broncos' version of the ultimate backyard play, the Statue of Liberty. Ian Johnson scored the two-point conversion to shock the Sooners and then ran down the sideline, where he proposed to his girlfriend, cheerleader Chrissy Popadics. She said yes.
