Texas 28, Oklahoma 10
Aaron Ross and Robert Killebrew came up huge during the 2nd half in Dallas, the former involved in the game’s biggest play, a disputed Paul Thompson fumble that Bob Stoops will spend most of next week calling an incomplete pass.
Clearly, the only way to resolve this is to ban Big 12 officials from future Oklahoma contests. They’re far too biased.
Anytime you can limit Adrian Peterson to 109 yards rushing and a single first quarter TD, you’ve got a chance to thrive, and keeping Oklahoma off the board after the intermission is easily the most impressive thing the Longhorns have accomplished since last January. Well, that and having the charges against Tarrell Brown and Tyrell Gatewood dropped.
I can’t wait for next June’s NFL Draft to see who the HoustonTexans pick instead of Steve Slaton.
Congrats to the Baylor Bears on their triple OT, 34-31 win over Colorado today, marking their first back-to-back victories in the Big 12 since joining the conference a decade ago. In retrospect, perhaps Dan Hawkins should’ve made someone other than John Mark Karr his starting QB.
Time to get PMC’d? Princeton remained unbeaten with Saturday’s 27-26 O.T. win at Colgate, a game that strangely was not shown in a single tavern in the Greater Austin area. Weird, my realtor promised me this was a real hotbed of interest in Ivy League football.
