You were probably sound asleep by the time the game between BYU and No. 20 Boise State came to an end early Sunday morning, but it was worth staying up for. 

After last week's heroics, when quarterback Tanner Mangum stepped in for injured starter Taysom Hill and beat Nebraska on a last-second Hail Mary, nobody expected last night's game to have the same flair. But they were wrong. 

Despite trailing Boise 24-21 with less than a minute to play, Mangum, on a fourth a long, delivered the ball 39 yards downfield and connected with wide receiver Mitchell Juergens in the end zone to take the lead with 45 seconds left on the clock. And Spots55 captured the moment on video. 

This kid sure is fun to watch.
