This was the big one. To this day, it is still the most important game in Boise State football history. The school’s first BCS appearance against Big 12 power, Oklahoma. Winning on three trick plays, including the winning 2-point conversion on the statue of liberty play to seal the win in overtime. Final score: 43-42.

Boise State’s second BCS berth came against fellow mid-major, TCU, whom they had lost to in the Poinsettia Bowl the year before.

Sept. 6, 2010 ~ Boise @ Virginia Tech, 33-30

Returning 17 starters from the second Fiesta Bowl team, the Broncos began the season ranked third in the nation. A late two-minute drive by
Kellen Moore grabbed the big win for the Broncos, and propelled them to a season where they would come just a field goal kick away from a potential national championship appearance.

 Sept. 3, 2011 ~ Boise @ Georgia (35-21)

Starting the season ranked fifth in the country, senior quarterback Kellen Moore led the Broncos into the Georgia Dome and put a beat down on the Georgia Bulldogs to get revenge from a 2005 loss.  The Broncos would once again be in the national title talks for much of the season.

Sept. 20, 2008 ~ Boise @ Oregon (37-32)

undefeated it the regular season.
