      I’m trying to compile a list.  Here are a few I came up with off the top of my head:

      2013  Auburn beats Georgia on a last-second bomb that was tipped off a Georgia defender

      2013  Two weeks later, Auburn beats Alabama with the “Kick 6”

      2014  TCU comes from behind to beat Oregon in triple OT in the Alamo Bowl

      2015  Michigan St. beats Michigan when Michigan punter botches the snap on the last play and MSU takes the fumble to the house.

      2016  USC beats Penn State in a shootout in the Rose Bowl.

      IMO, the Nat’l Championship game last year was pretty amazing.

      THE GREATEST IMO – Auburn beats Bama  on FG Miss 109 yard return

        The best part of the Auburn Kick-6 win was all the videos of divided families (Auburn/Bama fans watching together) and their reactions. Bama fans going from smug superiority to world crushing despair in the same time the Auburn fans go from hopeful to unbelievably delirious is just some fine comedy gold.

        Reminds me of some Zoob fans in front of me in RES at the end of the 2010 game. Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory has to hurt worse than salt in a tongue paper cut.

      If you go back a little further, the 2007 Fiesta Bowl with Boise State – Oklahoma still stands as one of the best games I’ve ever seen.

      2010 Boise State vs Nevada.  Game went to OT with Nevada foiling their perfect season and pending BCS bid. 

      Great game.

        Yeah, that was a crazy game. The controversial fg miss.

        Colin Kaepernick was incredible that year.

      Um, call me a homer, but the best football game in history – for me – was the 2009 Sugar Bowl.

        I’ve watched that first quarter so many times. Love it.

        I don’t recall the year, Minnesota was attempting the game winning chip shot FG. Utah blocked the FG and returned it for a TD. Ron McBride ran the length of the field and piled on with the rest of the players. The look on the faces of the Gopher fans was incredible. Sorry, reading comprehension problems. That definitely was more than 10 years ago. What can I say, GET OFF OF MY LAWN.

        1990. That was the start of a beautiful turnaround for the program.

        The game against in Minnesota was certainly among the most improbable endings I’ve ever seen.  The Minnesota kicker was a returning all-conference player too so was pretty much a shoe-in to make the kick.

        My dad and I about blew the roof of our house when Utah won.
