    Best College Football Game Ever?

    I've got the itch for some football, so I'm wondering what you all would consider the best college football game in history.

    For me, it has to be Oklahoma vs. Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl. That was insane.

    One more week!

    Boise St and Oklahoma. If not the best, gotta be in the top 5.

    Re: Best College Football Game Ever?

    In recent history, I'd say either OU vs BSU in the Fiesta Bowl or the Texas vs USC 2005 NC game.
    I also really enjoyed the Texas Tech vs Texas game in 2008, where TT upset #1 Texas.

    Nebraska with Johnny Rodgers against Oklahoma 35-31.
    Yes, BSU-Oklahoma is certainly top 5.

    Re: Best College Football Game Ever?

    Texas vs. USC Rose Bowl was the most insane game I ever saw.

    Cal v. Stanford is always a cool moment to see too.

    Re: Best College Football Game Ever?

    Probably the OU-Boise St. game. I can't say for anything pre-1994 because I really don't remember football before that point.
    There was a 7ish OT game and I think it was Kentucky-Arkansas in the early 2000's. That would be pretty intense to watch or be a part of.

    Is this the one where Boise St did the statue of liberty play towards the end, then the QB proposed to his cheerleader GF? If so, I'd probably agree.

    this is exactly the same as I feel. That comeback against Iowa was nothing short of a miracle. I was in the south endzone, hangover from hell. We get down big but this "annoying" ISU fan is yelling at everyone to stand up, cheer, we're still in it and going to come back and win. I think he is crazy and he is making my headache worse. At halftime he is still fired up...we are still down big. We come out and score in the 3rd and now he IS JACKED. I am still annoyed and still feel it is a lost cause. We score again. Now, he is no longer annoying. I am not in his world yet but getting close. By the time we go up, I am high fiving this guy, hugs, my headache is GONE...shame on me for doubting. Awesome day, and to this day still cannot believe we came back and beat them.

    For me, no non-ISU game compares to Thanksgiving Day 1971........... Nebraska - Oklahoma

    Texas vs. USC 2005, imo this game is No.1 by far.
