It was an incredible day for the entire Texas program, but most notably Strong, who came under plenty of criticism after the Longhorns began the season 1-4. It was clear just how important winning Saturday’s game for Strong was for the Texas players, as they lifted him up and let him crowd surf over them following the contest. What an awesome moment for Strong.

It’s been a tough season for the Volunteers. After coming into the year with SEC East champion aspirations, they dropped their first two conference games and started the year 2-3 overall. However, Tennessee’s fortunes changed on Saturday, as they came back and beat then-No. 19 Georgia 38-31 after trailing 24-3. It was exactly the type of win the Volunteers needed to salvage their season. Understandably, Tennessee players were fired up after the game, and they gave a passionate performance of “Rocky Top” with their fans.
TCU radio calls (Brian Estridge) of Trevone Boykin’s big rushing TD, game-winning TD pass
For much of their game Saturday against Kansas State, TCU's playoff dreams looked like they would be dashed. The Wildcats led 35-17 at the half and still carried a double-digit lead heading into the fourth quarter. But TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin isn’t a Heisman contender for no reason, and he led the Horned Frogs back into the contest. Boykin gave TCU its first lead since the first quarter with 6:07 left in the contest on an impressive 69-yard touchdown run. He then, after Kansas State answered and tied the game up with 1:47 remaining, threw a game-winning TD pass to Josh Doctson with 1:10 left to keep the Horned Frogs undefeated. Simply put, Boykin is a truly special talent.
LSU band plays South Carolina alma mater
Disaster struck in South Carolina last week, as massive floods devastated a large portion of the state. As a result of the flooding, the South Carolina football program moved its scheduled Week 6 home game against LSU to Baton Rouge. The Tigers went above and beyond to be gracious hosts for the Gamecocks, raising South Carolina’s flag at their stadium, placing South Carolina-themed place cards in the press box and even playing the Gamecocks' alma mater before the contest.
