I was watching college football live, and they were discussing their top 5 greatest college football finishes in the last 5 years. They ordered them as follows:

1. Boise vs. Oklahoma (Statue of Liberty) in 2007
2. Kentucky vs. LSU (Early Celebration) in 2002
3. Michigan State vs. Notre Dame (Little Giants-- fake punt) in 2010
4. USC vs. Notre Dame (Bush Push) in 2005
5. Iowa vs. LSU (Drew Tate first touchdown of year) in 2005
Runner Up: Texas vs. USC (V. Young in Rose Bowl) in 2005

So what would be your top 5 college football finishes in the last 10 years?

Hmmm, much to the dismay of the OP, I have to go with this one:


YouTube - ‪Texas Tech vs Texas, Techs last touchdown‬‏

Man, I remember watching the end of that game. It was awesome! It is at least top 5, maybe number 1.

Some others that come to mind:

2007: Appalachian State vs. Michigan (blocked kick!)
2010: Nevada vs. Boise State (OT win)

#1 - Between these two D3 school; known as the Mississippi Miracle (remember seeing this on Sportscenter) - 2007

YouTube - ‪Miracle in Mississippi - Trinity 28, Millsaps 24 10-27-2007‬‏

#2 - Statue of Liberty

This would be between 3 and 5 for me, our team was not suppose to come close to winning this and it happened. - 2003

YouTube - ‪FSU Rix to Sam 3‬‏

It's a good list and I think they got #1 right. Vince Young vs. USC definitely needs to move up a couple spots and I'd also put OSU/Miami on the list. Gotta give extra weight to the championship game.

As far as national implications go, Texas vs USC Rose Bowl should be #1.

The Texas Tech vs Texas also belongs on that list - and I say that as a Longhorn fan (ouch!).

Boise State vs OU - classic! lol
