GLENDALE, AZ -- 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.
6 Boise State a 17-10 victory over third-ranked TCU on Monday
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.
