STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ The January 16th Oklahoma State-Texas basketball game and the Oklahoma-Boise State Fiesta Bowl are being nominated for an ESPY Award as ``Best Game of the Year.''

The Cowboys beat Texas 105-to-103 in triple overtime as Mario Boggan scored a career high 37 points and had a career-best 25 rebounds to offset 37 points and 12 rebounds by the Longhorns' Kevin Durant.

In the Fiesta Bowl Boise State rallied from a 35-to-28 deficit with just more than a minute to play to beat OU 43-to-42 in overtime.

The other nomination is the AFC Championship game in which Indianapolis rallied from a three-touchdown deficit to beat New England 38-to-34 and advance to the Super Bowl.
