A rather spectacular Saturday

if you're a college football fan:

LSU wins "Saban Bowl" 41-34 over Alabama

The game fully delivered on its buildup, the two teams going at each other like heavyweights throwing nothing but bombs. There were numerous big plays and amazing swings in momentum, but LSU came through when it mattered.

Navy defeats Notre Dame after 44 years and three overtimes

Roger Staubach was quarterback for the Midshipmen in 1963 when they beat Notre Dame 35-14. Since then, the Irish have had their way -- that is until Saturday.

Longhorns beat Cowboys on last-second field goal

Between the first and second quarter, a livid (Texas coach Mack) Brown gathered his players in a huddle and screamed at them. Initially, Brown's outburst didn't seem to have much effect. Less than a minute into the second quarter, (Oklahoma State quarterback Zac) Robinson capped an 88-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown run, putting Oklahoma State ahead 21-0.

Arkansas' McFadden rushes for 323, passes for TD

With the ball at the South Carolina 23, McFadden dropped a pitchout, then picked up the ball and threw to the end zone for Robert Johnson, who wasn't open. Johnson outjumped defensive back Carlos Thomas and came down with the ball for a touchdown.

And there's more. Allegedly there will also be a pretty good pro game played this afternoon, though we in Houston won't get to see it (without a satellite dish and the NFL Sunday Ticket package).
