AUSTIN - The state of Florida has a good college football weekend when Florida State, Miami, and the University of Florida all win. Well, if that’s a good weekend; then Texas just had an incredible college football weekend as every major college football team won except North Texas and Rice.
The two biggest wins of the weekend were Texas upsetting then 10th ranked Notre Dame in a thrilling double-overtime epic and Houston throttling the Oklahoma Sooners. But that’s just two of the 10 major Texas colleges to win.
TCU beat South Dakota State 59-41; Baylor beat Northwestern State 55-7; Texas Tech demolished Stephen F. Austin 69-17; Texas A&M upset UCLA 31-24 in overtime.
Let’s pause and take a breath.
