You Can Exhale Now, Longhorn Fans: 28-24

Oklahoma State played like the second-best team in the nation this afternoon. There was one tiny problem, however, with Oklahoma State’s virtuoso performance, and that is that they were facing the best team, Texas. The Cowboys’ feisty resistance kept them in the game all day long, and Texas was only able to escape, 28-24, after a last-second Hail Mary fell harmlessly to the turf, batted down at the 10-yard line. Sure, superman WR Dez Bryant had gotten past the Texas secondary, but that’s mainly because the secondary was playing the ball, which was nowhere near Bryant when it came back down to earth. It was a gritty, gutty fight on both sides, though, certainly a better fight than (ahem) Oklahoma put up, and only the most careless of pollsters will drop Oklahoma State more than a spot or two for this loss.

Texas Happy

Rutgers QB Teel Wants To Punch You In The Face

Rutgers has been one of college football’s best stories over the past three seasons, but with a loss to Navy on Saturday dropping the Scarlet Knights to 0-3, this season is officially a disaster.

Mike Teel

Senior quarterback Mike Teel, who has shouldered much of the blame for the team’s poor showing, threw an interception as the team was driving late in the 23-21 loss on Saturday, clinching the win for Navy. Then, as a teammate was consoling Teel, he reacted as any reasonable person would — by attempting to punch him in the face.

Video after the jump.
