10. 2006 Boise State Broncos

Record: 13 - 0
Finish: Fiesta Bowl: Won
Coach: Chris Petersen
Best Player: Ian Johnson

Going for the two-point conversion to win in a regular season game takes balls; going for two in overtime during a bowl game on a trick play? That takes balls of steel. Boise State was already facing long odds when they squared off against Goliath Oklahoma in the '07 Fiesta Bowl, and after scoring a TD in OT to bring the Broncos within a point (after executing a flawless hook and ladder to tie the game in regulation), they could've been forgiven for playing it safe and kicking an extra point. Instead, head coach Chris Petersen opted to run a "Statue of Liberty" play on the two-point conversion, and beat the Sooners 43-42.

If that wasn't enough, Ian Johnson, the running back that ran for the winning score, proposed to his girlfriend, a Broncos cheerleader, during a post-game interview. And, of course, She said, "Yes." Successful proposal and Fiesta Bowl win in a 15-minute span? Ole, ole, ole, ole!
