Two of my three almae matres won this weekend--and a rather bizarre weekend it was, what with northeastern teamss at home playing in blizzard conditions, and a notable upset here and there.
Last night, on supposedly neutral ground, TCU showed it's getting the hang of scoring early, if not often, taking the lead on BYU and never giving it up. Then, tonight, Texas made the Jayhawks of Kansis wish they were somewhere in Oz, while Oklahoma was blowing K-State's dream season apart, and Iowa State, of all teams, was making Texas Tech look pretty sick.
On the downside, the Bad News Bears met the Bad News Bruins in the Rose Bowl, and Cal lost decisively to UCLA.
And, in the Bizarre Play category, during the Arizona-Washington game, with the Huskies having pushed the Wildcats almost to the goal line, the boys in black tried a lateral, which was intercepted by an Arizona player, who, in turn, lateraled to one of his own teammates; the latter ran it in for a score and tied the game 21 all at that point. I haven't seen anything quite like that since The Play (in the Cal-Stanford Big Game of 1983).
