BSU dominated the first three quarters, showing they belonged in the big game. They completely shut down future pro running back Adrian Peterson. It look like BSU was going to run away with the game, leading 28-10.
But then Oklahoma roared back getting 3 turnovers, and scoring 25 straight points to take a 7 point lead with a minute to go.
Now it looked like the game was really over, the BSU joyride was almost to an end. But boy oh boy was there more to come. With time running out and 4th and 18, BSU scored a TD with a 50 yard hook and ladder play to send the game into overtime.
BSU won the overtime toss. They would touch the ball second. That would prove to be huge.
In overtime Oklahoma scored on their first touch on a 25 yard run play by Adrian Peterson to go back up by 7. BSU had completely shut down Peterson during regulation, holding him to an average of under 3 yards a carry, but it was now obvious the smaller WAC school defense was running out of steam.
But the offense had more to give, BSU answered with another trick play on another 4th down- Wide Receiver Vinny Perretta's touchdown pass to Derek Schouman. Then BSU put all the chips on the table and went for 2 points for the win. And it paid off! On the 'Statue of Liberty' play QB Zabransky faked a throw to the right side, then handed the ball off to Ian Johnson, who ran unopposed to the end zone.
Sweet, Sweet, Sweet. What a game. This one will go into the books as one of the best ever. BSU proved all the nay sayers wrong.
