Top 5 College Rivalry Games From the Weekend

Baylor 52, Texas Tech 45

I don’t know about the intensity of this rivalry, but they were two teams from Texas, playing in Cowboy Stadium, and playing like the Cowboys secondary.  That may not sound like a good thing but it did make for a thrilling shootout. Highlights here.

Washington State 31, Washington 28

Washington broke into the BCS Top 25 the week before the Apple Cup. The Huskies responded by blowing an 18 point 4th quarter lead and falling in overtime. On the Cougars side, these were the kind of days they were hoping for when they hired Mike Leach. Check out the Highlights.

Oklahoma 51, Oklahoma State 48

If I hadn’t seen the Texas-TCU game on Thanksgiving night, I would have thought that the Big 12 had given up playing defense all-together.  The Sooners ran 103 offensive plays and Landry Jones threw for 500 yards and Oklahoma still never led in regulation. Check out the Bedlam game winner.

Arizona State 41, Arizona 34

The Sun Devils used a 24 point 4th quarter to win the Territorial Cup. The Wildcats led by 10 entering the final period but coughed it up thanks to a blocked punt and two turnovers. See the highlights or lowlights if your an Arizona fan.

Ohio State 26, Michigan 21

After the two teams combined for 41 points in the first half , it looked like they were headed for a shootout. Apparently, while in the locker room the ghosts of Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler possessed the bodies of their modern day counterparts and the game turned into an old fashioned defensive scrum. The Buckeyes finished 12-0 leaving their faithful to wonder what could have been. See the highlights.
