Boise State Wins Shocker, 17-10 Over TCU

Posted: Updated:

GLENDALE, Arizona -- Boise State reached into its bag of

tricks again and stunned Texas Christian in a Fiesta Bowl duel of

unbeaten BCS busters.

After the Broncos pulled off a gutsy fake punt at their own

33-yard line, Doug Martin scored the decisive touchdown to give No.

A 10-10 stalemate came alive when Broncos punter Kyle Brotzman

hit wide-open Kyle Efaw with a 30-yard strike with about 9 minutes

to play. Four plays later, Martin dove over a tackler from 2 yards

out to lead the Broncos (14-0) past the Horned Frogs (12-1).

The trickery evoked memories of Boise State's BCS debut three

years ago, when it pulled out a passel of gadget plays to defeat

Oklahoma on the same field.
