Boise State Kicks Away BCS Hopes

Last night, Nevada upset third ranked Boise State in a fantastic college football contest.

During a game that featured efficient offense and perhaps the best last second throw by a quarterback not named David Garrard this fall, it will be best remembered by a special teams meltdown.

Boise State field goal kicker Kyle Brotzman misfired on a 26-yard field goal at the end of regulation and then again on a 29-yarder in overtime.

Eventually, the Wolf Pack seized the opportunity in OT and grabbed the 34-31 victory.

Lesson learned? Leaving matters up to a field goal kicker is an extremely dicey proposition…especially when your team has championship aspirations.

Just ask these guys.
