What a sweet game. I admit that I was on the edge of the couch for most of the night, and unable to sit down during the 4th quarter as the No. 19 Texas Aggies beat the No. 8 Nebraska Cornhuskers 9-6 in a defensive struggle for the ages. I have to say that the fans really came through for the Aggies as they made so much noise that the Cornhuskers were getting penalized over and over again. It even got to the point that Bo Pelini, the hothead coach for Nebraska, got a penalty thrown on him he was so mad.
But alas, cooler heads prevailed as Pelini’s former head coach, Mike Sherman, coolie guided the Aggies to the victory. What an exciting game. Hopefully, the Aggies will continue their winning ways and add another victory to their 5-game winning streak when they play the t-sips on Thursday. I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. What a game.
Not only that, they are bound to bounce up in the polls again, and if they beat t.u., get a really good bowl bid to finish out the season. It’s hard to believe they have turned around so much after their early 3 game skid in the middle of the season. Gig ’em Aggies!
Special thanks go to Les and Debbie as they watched the game with me. Also to my lovely wife who made a wonderful dessert and fresh, homemade cornbread to go with my homemade chili. Made for a perfect evening. Now, I just need to double that chili recipe because there never seems to be much left afterward.
