I will present an overview of the final results from the SDSS-III BOSS analysis (DR12). Using the galaxy power spectrum and correlation function, BOSS was able to measure the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations scale in two independent redshift bins to 1% precision. Such constraints allow to map out the expansion history of the Universe and represent one of the most important cosmological tools at low redshift. I will also present the latest constraints on the growth of structure, which allow tests of modified gravity theories and help to constrain the sum of the neutrino masses.
