VIDEOS: Final Forty Seconds Of Humanitarian Bowl

The videos are "YouTube quality," but hey -- they're better than reading a bunch of words, right?

First, Bowling Green's Freddie Barnes hauls in a 51-yard touchdown with just 32 seconds left (seriously, HOW did he get that wide open? He had 17 catches on the night! You knew they would be looking his way).

At this point, the Falcons lead, 42-35. Happy times in Bowling Green! That did not last long, however.

It took Idaho just 28 seconds to score a touchdown, thanks in large-part to a 50-yard bomb to get the Vandals in scoring position. And then, the gutsy call to go for two.

Vandals win, 43-42. And there you have it, the wildest bowl game of 2009 (so far, anyways).
