The ball that ended one of college football’s greatest games (no, not Appalachian State vs Michigan) was missing. It didn’t take long for someone to come forward and claim possession. It might be worth Bonds money in Boise.
In a moment of sheer delirium, Boise State tailback Ian Johnson fired one of the most famous pieces of college football memorabilia into the stands. The Broncos had just upset Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl last January, polishing off one of the greatest games in NCAA history.
Johnson was looking to complete the pass to family members seated nearby, but the ball overshot them and found an empty row of seats instead. With a new season about to begin, Boise State was wondering what happened to the ball that should be sitting next to the trophy.
They’d love to have it back but it could be worth big money on the memorabilia market. The man who picked it up that night in Phoenix has already turned down one offer.
