College Football Saturday Recap

Saturday's home finale against Syracuse marked not only the penultimate game of Charlie Weis' first year, but also the return of A Tradition Unlike Any Other...the Turkey-Gate. This is a Heidkamp Family staple (dating all the way back to 2002) in which six turkeys are sent into the deep-fryer and consumed by hungry tail-gaters. This year's edition was a rousing success, and all are looking forward to the sequel, Turkey-Gate '06 in L.A.

The game...not the most cosmetically pleasing, but still a 34-10 Irish victory. Brady Quinn now the career passing leader at Notre Dame. Irish now 8-2 and needing a win over Stanford to essentially lock up the BCS bid.


Penn State displaces Michigan State 31-22 and curses the refs up the road in Ann Arbor who gave the Wolverines those two seconds back.

Georgia Tech trips up Miami, 14-10, screwing up the Orange Bowl's dream matchup of Penn State-Miami.

Alabama again can't find any offense, allowing Brodie Croyle to be sacked eleven (ELEVEN!!!) times in a 28-18 loss to archrival Auburn.

USC once again pulls off "The Great Escape", this time getting an interception in the endzone to stave off the Bulldogs of Fresno State 50-42. Reggie Bush was phenomenol, but did enough people see it to give him the edge in the Heisman race?
