Definitely the top victory in the past 10 years. Perhaps the greatest victory in program history.

I won't bore you with the details because honestly was there ever any doubt that this was the #1 game in this series? Beyond that, this game would probably be the #1 of game of all-time for our beloved Red Raider football team in most people's estimation. I was lucky enough to be there in person and see all firsthand. I have never seen a crowd like that before, during or after a game. Everything about being there was surreal. This game ranks as the #1 sporting event that I have attended and will be very hard to beat. I couldn't imagine much other than a national championship being able to top it. The highlights are below for your enjoyment!

On a side note, Harrell's interview at the end is what made him the best Red Raider quarterback of all-time. That mentally separates the goods from the greats.
