It's been done. Boise State has lost.

Nevada came through in the clutch, something Kyle Brotzman couldn't do.

With nine seconds left and the game tied at 31, Kellen Moore hooked up with Titus Young for a deep bomb, setting up Brotzman with the game-winner from the 7-yard line.

Brotzman hooked it wide right.

Boise got the ball in overtime with a chance to set the tone.

On a crucial third down, the ball was knocked away as Titus Young couldn't get his grasp on it. It set up another crucial kick for Brotzman.

Right in the middle of the hashes and from the same exact spot.

He hooked it wide left.

The crowd in Reno went crazy as Brotzman put his hands over his helmet.

This kind of drama can't be found on a soap opera, or in FOX's Sunday lineup.

Kyle Brotzman can go down for this one. He is the reason Boise State will be bumped out of contention for the title game.

Auburn had its scare today in Alabama and came back.

Oregon got down early, but came back.

Boise State watched contently, never thinking that it would be them who would slip up. Oh, how wrong they were.

Nevada and their pistol offense came through when it counted, allowing Kaepernick to drive down the field twice to erase a 17-point first-half Boise lead.

In one of the best games I've ever witnessed, Nevada and Kaepernick, amongst a sea of Wolfpack fans, ride off into the snowy sunset.

The No. 19 Wolf Pack have done what no team could do.

Where does that leave Boise?

Not in a good spot. I feel for the kid, Kyle Brotzman, but after his first kick you could tell his head was messed up. He will have some time to think about it as Boise's chances are dashed.

The next we will hear of Boise in the title game will be if Kellen Moore, Austin Pettis and Titus Young are bidding for a Super Bowl title in the NFL.
