    3. Oh what a day!

      Late season college football, can’t be beat!

      Though this year almost the whole season has been some great football played.

      Texas got lucky or showed their actual talent. Probably a combination of both actually.

      Oh and go Utes!

    4. Lots of upsets during rivalry week: OU beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 27-0; South Carolina upset Clemson 34-17; NC State edged North Carolina 28-27; and Mississippi State beat Mississippi 41-27.

    5. TC, definitely a bit of both.

      I’m not sure how to interpret A&M. Either they completely screwed up the rest of the season, or they put their hearts and souls into their 116 year old rivalry with UT. Either way, Colt McCoy could win any election in the state (except College Station Mayor). What a great game.

    6. Oh daaum!

      My Utes suck!

      Yeah valid excuses exist, but WTH, they almost pulled it off. Played an excellent game even played through some pretty sad officiating, (big grumbles over such, rumors of using BYU faculty for such and such and such)… :)

      But reality is, they lost, and congrats to the zoo. Not the first time these two have traded the W L, doubt it will be the last either.

      GAWD do I miss Urban Myer!! (sob sob sob)!!

      There was again some most excellent foot played today, no matter the outcome of any single game, many top ranked teams got some real stuff throw at them and many of them pulled it out of the hat. Again, combination of luck and team talent.

      Congrats to all of them on this fine day!
