Rivalry Week lives up to hype

Beginning with Mississippi State’s dramatic overtime win over arch-rival Mississippi in the 2013 Egg Bowl on Thanksgiving night, college football’s annual Rivalry Week was full of big plays, timely defense, some trickeration, and BCS-changing upsets.  The table is being set, with one of the few BCS questions remaining to be settled next Saturday in Stillwater, Oklahoma, 11:00 am kickoff.

Friday’s SEC matchup featured hapless Arkansas reverting to form in the final seconds to give up the game winning TD pass to LSU’s freshman qb, after Mettenberger went down with a season ending knee injury.

Saturday’s games included Michigan’s tough loss  to Ohio State in The Game, SC thumping of Clemson, and Missouri claiming the SEC East over aTm in the night cap.  But, far and away, the game of the year was played at Jordan-Hare Stadium as Auburn claimed the West in the annual Iron Bowl with an ending that I can best describe in three letters.  …  WOW!!!   If you didn’t see it, just check SportsCenter, it will be shown for weeks to come.  Auburn has the look of a team of destiny, if you believe in that kind of stuff, or unbelievably lucky if you don’t.

Rivalry Week was a Football Feast.  Bowl season is coming up fast, and I can’t believe how quickly the season has passed.

 

CWS National Championship

lsuA five run 6th broke open the championship game of the 2009 College World Series in Omaha, as the LSU Tigers claimed their 6th CWS championship with a 11 – 4 victory over the Texas Longhorns at historic Rosenblatt Stadium.

The Tigers ended the third game of the series as they began the first game, with Mississippian Louis Coleman on the mound, but the game was never in doubt after the 6th.  In an inning which featured several Texas miscues, LSU sent 10 batters to the plate.

Two of the night’s stars were also members of the LSU football team, Jared Mitchell and Chad Jones.  Mitchell hit a line drive 3-run homer in the first, and scored the go-ahead run in the 6th inning.  Jones relieved starter Ranaudo with one out in the sixth and pitched to two batters, striking out both, along with a scoreless 7th  to keep the Longhorns at bay.
