A Saturday of upsets and near upsets. Fifth ranked Oklahoma State lost to unranked Houston by two scores. Freshman quarterback Tate Forcier lead his rebuilding Michigan team to a four point victory over 18th ranked Notre Dame. Number 21 Georgia slips by South Carolina. Eleventh ranked LSU can't put away Vanderbilt until midway through the fourth quarter. And third ranked USC needs a game saving touchdown late in the fourth quarter to beat Ohio State. And for thirty minutes in the rarified air of Laramie, Wyoming, much of the Longhorn Nation wondered if Texas was destined to join the mighty fallen in the second week of the season.
The Texas Longhorns closed out their spring training schedule with the annual scrimmage Sunday afternoon. What started humbly with just a handful of die-hard fans is beginning to resemble the full game-day experience (if only vaguely). It included the team running in and most of the supporting organizations, (the Longhorn Band, cheerleaders, and pom squad).
