Best Hail Mary Ever?

I have watched Doug Flutie's and Kordell Stewart's great hail mary passes for many years, but locked away on an old VHS tape is arguably (not really arguable, this is the best) the best hail mary pass of ALL-TIME (no bias, no sarcasm)!  Now thanks to the iphone, a quick and easy video made from the TV and uploaded to YOUTUBE and now everyone can see for themselves the best game-winner (hard to categorize this laser-guided bomb as a hail mary).
The University of Nevada-Reno (now Nevada) was the #1 ranked team in Division I-AA in 1988 and Weber State was tied at 31-31 with :06 seconds left in the game at their own 43 yard line.  On the last play of the game, quarterback Jeff Carlson rolls out to the left and launches a 70 yard pass to Todd Beightol in the end zone to win the game 37-31.
You be the judge.  Flutie, Stewart or Carlson, who gets your vote for best game-winning toss?
