Holy crap did N.Dame escape with one tonight! I also thought that they had lost it, especially with the fumble on the 1/2 inch line in OT. I really thought the Pitt kicker would hit that field goal and win the game. The Nebraska last second win over Mich.St, was a pretty good finish as well. W.Virginia going down in by a point in extra time kicked off that trifecta of crazy close games mid afternoon.
Although Maryland's LB turned QB didn't fare as bad as he could have, they had another two guys go out with injuries in their game today! The only thing worse than the health of their current roster is that god-awful pattern from their helmets that they decided to match with their shoes today. Ugh, hideous! Michigan managed to win with their WR turned QB, fortunately he had QB experience.
Night games haven't finished quite yet but it's looking like the undefeated Ducks, Wildcats, and Tide will probably stay that way. N.Dame didn't do itself any favors with their struggles today as these other three all looked much better against much better teams. It also doesn't help that their late season heavy (USC) just got 60+ points dropped on them at home. LSU is playing with Alabama though.
Definitely a crazy day. I thought Notre Dame had lost the game about 5 times today. As you can see per my post below after that 4th quarter INT I was already trying to make peace with a loss. I also thought there was no way Pitt misses that FG in OT following Wood's fumble. We went from taking a 7 pt lead to giving Pitt the chance to win the game with only a FG. I also thought (and hoped) Michigan State would beat Nebraska. You're right, Notre Dame struggling while others continue to roll is not good for them. That should open the door for Oregon to pass them in the BCS. That also weakens our schedule as now best case scenario USC will have three losses when we play them at the end of the year.
Watching Kansas State now, didn't realize one of The Gronk's brothers is on the KSU roster.
