Top play lists often consist of long runs, devastating hits, and occasionally tee-fetching dogs. At OBNUG, I'd like to take a moment away from those plays and bring you the Top Five Bronco plays from the past. These plays focus solely on plays readily available on Video online, so our selection is somewhat listed. As such you will not see Cedric Minter, sorry Cedric.
The Top 5 Dive touchdowns focuses on the epitome of underrated plays. The dive touchdown is simply a matter of which team is better in the trenches, and often, which running back is willing to fly into the end zone. The following plays are simply 5 examples of Boise State running backs leaping around like chinchillas or barreling through opposing defenders.
Kazzy brings you, the top five Bronco Touchdown dives.
Brock Forsey Scores against Fresno State.

This is the prototypical Brock Forsey Touchdown. He scored this and about 5,000 other touchdowns in his career as a Bronco. More on Brock later.
Ian Johnson against Oregon State.
Boise State phenom Ian Johnson! (via xosmedia)
This was the breakout game of Ian's sophomore year. Although the winning touchdown in the Fiesta Bowl was not really a touchdown dive (trickery doesn't count), this play shows the many of the reasons why he was such a powerful back in 2006. (Read: He had incredible leg strength)
Doug Martin greets Shilo Keo
Hello Shilo. Welcome to Sportcenter.
Brock Forsey Flies
In the largest win in the programs history up to that point, Brock Forsey goes airborn to score against the highly-ranked Bulldogs. This leap single-handidly defeated many giants, literally. It was a sad day in the giant world.
Doug Martin Runs Angry
This is my personal favorite, so I am biased. Before Doug Martin was a first round draft pick, before he was a bonafide star to the country, he manhandled Utah State and ran angry. This is a more devastatingly slow death that the Aggies faced, as compared to the Vandals. Oh Doug, where have you gone. Hopefully you can catch on the NFL somewhere.
