Harrisburg, Pa.
Texas was up 24-7 with 9 minutes left. Typical Texas showed up and then Kansas recovered an insides kick and is driving. They’re down by 10 with 2:37 on Texas’ side of the field.

Edit: Kansas with a FG, now down 24-17 with 1:37 left. Onside kick time again.

Edit 2: Texas recovers. Kansas has no timeouts. Texas going to the Big 12 championship game, somehow.

UCF’s QB just had his leg/knee absolutely wrecked on a tackle. He’s done for the year for sure, and will have a long recovery. ESPN wouldn’t show the replay. Horrible...

That was strange at the end of the half of VT-Virginia. VT's QB throws a pick and manages to make the tackle to prevent the Pick 6 and time ran out. This despite the Ref getting in his way and he shoved him to the ground.

UCF has more than a QB/offense. Good d and ST too. I really hope they make the playoff.

They definitely do, but Mackenzie Milton is more than just a regular QB. He's a Heisman candidate. He's a Junior, and he had 37 touchdowns passing, and 8 td's rushing last year, on over 4,600 total yards. Coming into today, he was at 24 touchdowns passing, 9 td's rushing this season. He's their leader in every way, player of the year, etc. Just a fucking horrible, horrible loss both for him, and the program. Can only hope he's healthy enough to start next season.

They just scored very easily on 3 rushing plays to make it 17-0 in the 2nd quarter, but we'll need to see if they can throw the ball at some point. Milton did both and did them both really well.

That was targeting and the fact that they didn’t even look at it tells you all you need to know about who the Big 12 brass wants to win this game.

Go ahead and run the banner for Texas v Oklahoma in the title game. This one is in the bag. Scoring on D is like breaking serve in tennis in a game like this with WVU’s defense. WVU can score on every possession from here on out and it won’t matter.

You can't underestimate what a huge advantage this snowstorm is for UW. WSU throws the ball like 60+ times a game. It's their whole offense, and UW has one of the most experienced running backs in the country and routinely plays the ground and pound style you need in this kind of weather. WSU is getting a full on porking from Mother Nature tonight.

And West Virginia punches it in to take a 41-38 lead. It's almost the 4th quarter too...LOL
