AGAIN?! A Former Eagle Quarterback Does the Unbelievable. Twice.
Tanner Mangum is incredible. One week after beating Nebraska on a last-second Hail Mary, he stunned another team with another Hail Mary. Um yeah....this time it happened to be Boise State. Last night.
With less than a minute to go and a game-ending 4th down staring him in the face, Tanner launched a bomb toward the end zone and BYU receiver Mitchell Juergens hauled it in for a touchdown. That's two incredible throws in two consecutive weeks, for two big wins for BYU, thanks to this stud from Eagle.
I'm a Nebraska alum and a Boise State homer now, and despite the way Tanner Mangum has caused me much pain and suffering as a football fan in the last two weeks, I can't help but be happy for him. He's exciting! He was a superstar in Eagle, and now he's leading BYU to success and time in the national spotlight.
They're starting to call him "Miracle Mangum." I guess that's better than "Mary Mangum." Good luck the rest of the season, Tanner. You're amazing.
