Victory

Today, I headed down to the Liberty Bowl to check out my Memphis Tigers as they took on the SMU Mustangs. This was one of the best games I have ever been to in my entire life.   

First off, it was absolutely freezing. I am not a cold weather hater. I love cold weather. However, when your toes can act as ice cubes, it is officially “cold” outside.

The game started at 1. It was crazy back and forth the entire game. Memphis had the ball with less than 2 minutes left in the game. The score was tied 42-42. We ended up getting down to about the 15 yard line with 30 seconds left. It was all for nothing when my boy Matt Reagan misses the game winning chip shot. Not his fault. The snap, hold, and everything else was terrible.

So we go into overtime. We hold them to only a field goal so ALL we have to do is score something and we are still alive. Offense does crap and we have to settle for a field goal.

Annndddddd…..we missed it. However, stupid SMU coach that’s already been fired called a timeout before we hiked the ball. So, we get another chance, and we make it this time.

Long story short, we both score in the 2nd OT. SMU gets shut down in the third OT, and we kick the game winner on second down. Final Score: 55-52. The game was almost a 5 hour game. Afterwards, Memphis accepted a bid to the New Orleans Bowl to play Troy. Apparently, we are probably going to get murdered by Troy. Oh well JR, we still got to a bowl game.
