When BYU lined up to attempt a game-winning field goal with 16 seconds remaining, Boise State nose tackle David Moa was struggling to get his shoe on along the sideline as head coach Bryan Harsin was pleading for someone to help Moa. Moa managed to get his shoe on in time before he blocked the Cougars’ 44-yard field goal attempt and help Boise State escape with a 28-27 victory Thursday night in a wild finish. The Broncos (7-0), who won their 23rd straight non-conference home game, overcame five turnovers in the victory.

The deposition by Tom Bradley was read during the fourth day of trial in McQueary’s defamation and whistleblower lawsuit against the university over his treatment after Sandusky’s 2011 child molestation arrest.
