The legend of Boise State's miraculous victory over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl lives on.

On Sunday, the Miami Dolphins pulled off an incredible play with no time remaining to beat the New England Patriots.

If you haven't seen it...

Running back and kick returner Kenyan Drake told Peter King of Pro Football Talk that the play was named 'Boise' as “You know, as a testament to that Boise State-Oklahoma game,” Drake told King.

Although Miami's crazy play was named 'Boise' and featured some laterals, the play that most resembled the Fiesta Bowl may have come from the Pittsburgh-Oakland game on Sunday afternoon.

The Steelers comeback to tie the game fell short after the kicker slipped and missed the field goal.
