PROVO, Utah -- It was another dramatic finish for the Brigham Young University Cougars Saturday night, as once again a last-minute long pass from Tanner Mangum delivered a win. See the video above for footage of the incredible play as well as for reaction from players and the head coach.

BYU upset No. 20 ranked Boise State Saturday night, and the game was capped off with a pair of incredible plays.

Down 21-24 with less than one minute to play, BYU faced a 4th-and-7 situation at the 35 yard line--forcing Mangum to throw up a long-bomb prayer to Mitchell Juergens. And, just like last week at Nebraska, the Cougars were victorious as a receiver came down with the ball against all odds.

The broadcast version of that play can be viewed in the tweet below.

Boise had time to respond, but on their opening play of the following drive the Cougar defense slammed the nail in the coffin with a pick 6.

The pair of last-minute touchdowns gave BYU a final score of 35-24 over Boise, as the remaining 30 seconds weren't enough time for Boise to recover.
