USC barely hangs on

USC hangs on with seconds left in the game to beat the Washington Huskies 27-24. We were favored by 3 touchdowns but only won by 3 points. I had a bad feeling the entire game. The refs were calling everything on us, and even made up some penalties in my opinion. We had about 16 penalties and lost 150 yards. Booty threw a couple interceptions, and yet we still won. We got really lucky tonight. Don't know if we will drop from #1 to #2 this week. It wouldn't surprise me. The picture above is USC getting a punt blocked with only a minute and a half to go. We were ahead by 10, it appeared we would win. Then the blocked punt, which turned into a Washington touchdown. Now we were only 3 points ahead with less than a minute to go. They kick an on-side kick, but luckily we recover and hold out for the win. Wow, I can't take games like this. I was a nervous wreck the entire time. But we are still undefeated. 5 of the top 10 teams lost today including Oklahoma, Florida, Texas and Rutgers. West Virginia lost on Friday. It was the weekend of upsets. Hey BYU hangs on to win tonight too against New Mexico.

Alvin was very happy USC won. Me, I was really happy BYU won.

Hey Mike, an idea occurred to me this morning. Tell me what you think. What if in the spring of next year everyone that is a member of LDS Blogs Webring gets together for a big dinner. What do you think? Good idea?
