LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The Boise State-Oklahoma Fiesta Bowl game has won the ESPY Award for the best game of the year.

Boise State rallied from a 35-28 deficit with just over a minute to play to beat the Sooners 43-42 in overtime.

The winning points came on a 2-point conversion using the Statue of Liberty play.

That play won the ESPY for best play.

Oklahoma State's triple overtime win over Texas in college basketball in January was one of three finalists for the ESPY.

Indianapolis' rally from a 3-touchdown deficit to beat New England in the AFC Championship game was the other finalist.
