Boise State walks away with victory, pride in thrilling win over Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

GLENDALE, Ariz. -  The Boise State Broncos no longer have to beg for respect. The Broncos earned it in an exhilarating 43-42 overtime victory over Number 7 Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl Monday night.

The Broncos also made a powerful statement for college football's outsiders. By flooring the Sooners, Boise State started another lively college football debate. The Broncos and top-ranked Ohio State are the only teams with perfect records.

The Buckeyes will play Number 2 Florida for the BCS national championship on the same field January 8th, but the Broncos say they belong in that game. Quarterback Jared Zabransky says Boise State deserves a chance at playing for the national title.
