Brotzman missed a 26-yard field goal with two seconds left in regulation and a 29-yard field goal in overtime. The loss ended their undefeated season and the hopes of playing in the BCS championship game.
According to reports, the Ada County Sheriff's Department received information about angry fans "leaving obnoxious, harassing telephone messages" for Brotzman.
Some people reportedly used Facebook to taunt the senior kicker. Brotzman supporters responded with their own Facebook pages called, "Bronco Nation Loves Kyle Brotzman" and "We Still Love Kyle Brotzman."
