OUT OF THE BLUE
Out of the Blue:
A Film About Life and Football at Boise State is a documentary look at the underdog Boise State football team who came from nowhere to defeat the mighty Oklahoma Sooners in what many have called the greatest college football game ever played. The film follows a group of Boise State athletes from humble backgrounds who expected to be BCS contenders but were overlooked by the blue chip programs. Instead they came to Boise State and found a first-year head coach with a blue collar work ethic and a no-nonsense attitude. This team defied the odds to deliver a perfect 13-0 season that culminated in a BCS busting 43-42 victory at the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. The 2007 Fiesta Bowl, an instant classic for its miraculous fourth quarter, showcased BSU's never-say-die attitude, sandlot energy and wide open imagination. In Out of the Blue, director Michael Hoffman goes beyond the highlight reel to uncover what football has to teach these young men and teach us all about life.
