Okay, this is officially the best college football season ever. At this point, the national champion is almost moot. We could be looking at Kansas State v South Florida for the title and, well, it will be alright.
Today, on a Saturday with few games of an real national interest, Kentucky QB Andre Woodson – this year’s Vince Young, and my favorite player this season – orchestrated another stunning upset my leading the once woebegon-Wildcats to a 43-37 victory over No. 1 LSU. The win snapped LSU’s 13-game win streak and further threw the national title race into Twilight Zone.
Woodson (are the Jets watching???) hit Steve Jackson for a 7-yard TD to take a six-point lead in the third OT. Then after the Wildcats failed on the two-point conversion (required starting with the 3OT), vaunted LSU could not get 10 yards in four downs and were done.
Woodson was 21-for38 with 249 yards and 3 TDs. He was poised and powerful His arm zipped passes into places Chad Pennington couldn’t reach on ‘roids.
Kentucky is one of many Cinderellas in this Grimm’s of a season – the best college football season ever.
