A Saturday that looked pretty ordinary at 11 a.m. quicky turned unforgettable, and stayed that way well into the night. Not only were our college football expectations exceeded. Our wildest dreams were as well.
Saturday, October 23, 2021. Write that down. The Great Game was at its very greatest.
Kansas vs. Au Jus. Kansas? KANSAS?
Navy scares the daylights out of Cincinnati?
Wake Forest and Army combine for 126 points?
Illinois and Penn State take it to nine overtimes? Nine? And the Illini win? At (un)Happy Valley?
Did you see Kansas State and Texas Tech?
Iowa State-Oklahoma State was everything that is good about college football.
Oregon comes back to beat UCLA in the “Chip Bowl.”
Miami nips the Wolfpack.
Houston had to go to OT to beat East Carolina.
UTSA rolled in Ruston. That’s 8-0.
And…Rice. Owls 30, UAB 24.
It was a Saturday that even Nat King Cole would have found unforgettable. And it looked so ordinary at 11 a.m. October 23, 2021. Yeah. That was a good day.
Now let’s do Sunday!
Gonna be weird but wild watching J.J. and D. Hop facing their former Texans teammates.
Burrow v. Jackson
I’m a happy boy!
Oh, before I forget. Is anyone else having as much fun as I am watching Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett play?
And, seeya Tuesday, Braves. Don’t get your hopes up.
