Video: Boise State fake punt that beats TCU in Fiesta Bowl

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It wasn't as dramatic as the Statue of Liberty play from 2007's OT Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma State, but this latest bit of trickery in the No. 6 Broncos' bag was no less amazing.

Boise State's fourth quarter fake punt on fourth-and-nine picked up 29 yards and led to the game-winning drive in their 17-10 Fiesta Bowl win over No. 4 TCU to preserve a perfect 14-0 season.

Punter Kyle Brotzman hit Kyle Efaw for 20 yards with a defender in his face to carry the day. Brotzman also had a perfect punt to the TCU one-yard line to help seal the game with less than 2 minutes left.

And about that 2007 win:
