The 2nd place Yogi Berra “It ain’t over until it’s over Award” goes to…Adams St. They won over Western St., 52-51, in OT. It was close in total yards, too: Western St.: 622; Adams St.: 619.
The Warner Wolf Award goes to…Southern VA. If you had the Knights and 83, you lost! Salisbury (VA) 91, Southern VA 7.
You took the “Over,” right??? At the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, surrounded by the State Fair of Texas, Grambling 70, Prairie View A&M 54. Vendors from the fried food stands outside the stadium may have applied some grease to the turf as the two teams also glided up and down the field for 1,136 yards of combined offense.
“Hello? Waldorf-Astoria???” Yes, I need to book some rooms for the weekend of December 12th. Oh, the name??? Better make it two names, Fournette and Miles. LSU running back Leonard Fournette continued his Heisman quest by carrying 26 times for 244 and two TDs. It’s the first time a Tiger running back has run for 200 yards in two consecutive games. BTW---The Tigers have not turned over the ball in 12 consecutive quarters this season.
“Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for “Bo.” Jim Harbaugh’s yesteryear I-formation offense ran for 250, passed for 194 using a tailback, a fullback and a tight end. Looking down from heaven, Bo Schembechler would also be proud of the Wolverines’ D that shutout the Cougars’ 30-points-per-game offense and held it to only 105 yards.
Looking ahead to next weekend…
Key games: #6 Notre Dame @ #12 Clemson; #13 Bama @ #8 Georgia; #21 Miss. St. @ #14 Texas A&M *(Arlington, JerryWorld) and #3 Ole Miss @ #25 Florida.
