If the San Diego State women's golf team's awesome trick-shot video has ushered in the Era of Collegiate Golf Team Trick-Shot Videos, then we're all for it.
The Boise State women's golf team has gotten in on the act with an allusion to the school's most memorable sporting moment. The Bronco ladies took to the blue turf to recreate the Statue of Liberty two-point conversion play in overtime that won the 2007 Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma.
While there are plenty of style points to be doled out for wearing football pads and the dramatization of the moment in Tempe eight years ago, this is a fundamentally awesome trick. There's the snap, the catch and the pass back to the running back, who balances the golf ball off the club face all the way to the end zone. (Yes, we realize that's a colossal mashup of sports terms.) This is the golf version of the corporate picnic race where co-workers have to get along as they transfer an egg between spoons...except way more difficult.
