Around the Big 12 - Week 2

It's a little lame this wk. The weekend trip was tiresome this time around, with about 10 hours in the car in a 30 hour period, and 4 hours in a stadium with 85,000 of my closest friends. Nonetheless, here goes - the best is saved for last:
  • Boone State beat the Houston Cougars 56-37. The new, improved Cowboys defense held Houston QB Casey Keenum to 387 yards and 4 TDs passing, and 81 yards rushing. Casey set a personal career record for total yards. California beat Washington State 66-3 this week, so last week’s victory is a little less impressive.
  • Phog U defeated the La Tech Bulldogs 29-0.
  • The Dust Pirates beat Nevada 35-19. Some articles I read on the net that i'm too tired to link to proclaim this a dominating defensive performance.
  • Stephen McGee was injured, but the Aggies beat New Mexico 28-22. Reveille VIII can rest easy now.
  • Robert Griffin led the Baylor Bears over Northwestern State.
  • The Bugeaters struggled early, but pulled away from the San Jose State Spartans, 35-13.
  • Kansas State defeated Montana State. Someone had to.
  • The Buffaloes needed a late TD followed by a pick-six to beat the Eastern Washington Eagles. I was following this closely with JayDou's iphone and we were extremely disappointed when the Buffs pulled out the W.
  • Iowa State avenged last year’s loss to Kent State.
  • Texas beat El Paso.
  • Missouri scheduled a win against SEMO.
  • In other college sports news The Nittaly Lions beat Oregon State.
