Another 1 Bites the Dust

by on November 2, 2008 updated November 2, 2008

 College football sees another #1 ground into the dirt. The Texas Longhorns, playing as well as anyone in the country, ran into a fired up Texas Tech Red Raiders team on Saturday. The result? An unforgettable last second victory for Tech when quarterback Graham Harrel let go with a probably not too smart pass to a well covered Michael Crabtree. The wide receiver snagged the ball, evaded the tacklers, and crossed the goal line with a mere second on the clock. Anther unforgettable finish for college football and another #1 ranked team bites the dust. More to the point the win puts a BCS National Championship Game appearance within the grasp of the Red Raiders. Just beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners and who knows?  

 Meanwhile, across the country, the Georgia Bulldogs met their own self inflicted fate at the hands of the Florida Gators. Georgia riled up the Florida boys with an excessive celebration in last years game, inspiring vengeance and a dominating 49-10 win by the Gators. What goes around comes around. Florida looks as strong as anyone in the SEC at this point. Except maybe Alabama.
