TCU Vs. Boise State Final Score: Two-Point Call Ends Broncos' Streak

For months, this game has been circled as the Boise St. Broncos only potential challenge of the year, besides their opener against the Georgia Bulldogs. And a challenge it was! The TCU Horned Frogs walk away with a 36-35 victory in Boise. Nobody ever beats Boise State in Boise.

TCU had the chance to tie with a minute to go, but elected to go for two points to take a one-point lead. Casey Pachall found Josh Boyce near the goal line -- Boyce nearly saw the ball get picked off, but shrugged a tackler and made his way from blue turf to orange turf. Here's video of the play:

The Broncos' emergency strategy appeared to be having Kellen Moore hurl the ball as far as possible while hoping for pass interference calls. Referees didn't bite until a fourth down near midfield, flagging an uncatchable pass. Whatever works. The drive remained alive, and Boise State reached field goal territory.

A 37-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right, and there you have it.

Boise State hasn't lost at home in 10 years. The Broncos haven't lost a conference game at home since 1998. For once, TCU isn't threatening to crash the BCS. But for once, Boise State suddenly isn't. I blame the Mountain West for insisting on non-blue home uniforms.
