Gary Pinkel dances, gets emotional after win over BYU
As announced by the school on Friday, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel plans to retire at the end of this season after being diagnosed with lymphoma in May. It’s sad news for one of the more successful coaches in today's era of college football.
But Pinkel’s not done just yet, and his Tigers came through for him in a big way Saturday. Mizzou put together arguably its best game of the season and toppled BYU 20-16 at Arrowhead Stadium a day after Pinkel’s planned retirement was made public. There were a few awesome scenes after the emotionally-charged win, including Pinkel doing his GP dance on the field.
Oklahoma celebrates in locker room after huge victory over Baylor
Oklahoma shook up the Big 12 on Saturday with an enormous win over previously-unbeaten Baylor. The Sooners moved to 9-1 on the season, keeping themselves alive in the College Football Playoff hunt. If Oklahoma’s able to topple TCU and Oklahoma State in its final two games, they’ll have a fairly strong case to earn a playoff invite. As should be expected, the Sooners were fired up after the season-altering win. Check out the players dancing while chanting “We too deep!” in the locker room post-game.
Michigan radio call of goal-line stand versus Indiana
In one of the more exciting games of the season, Michigan took down Indiana in double overtime in Week 11. The Wolverines struck first in the second overtime, scoring on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Jake Rudock to Amara Darboh.
However, Indiana appeared poised to tie up the game shortly thereafter, as they opened the ensuing drive with a 17-yard run down to the eight-yard line. However, as they’ve done before this year, Michigan’s defense clamped down and had a game-winning goal line stand. As Jim Brandstatter and Dan Dierdorf of Michigan IMG Sports Network captured in their call of Indiana’s last chance at the end zone, this was a huge win for the Wolverines. If Michigan wins out and Michigan State beats Ohio State next week, Jim Harbaugh’s squad will head to the conference title game.
