54-28. Wow, what a win. Who would have thunk it? I'm proud of the way we played going to no. 7 BYU who hasn't lost a home game since 2005, against a Heisman candidate and we won by 26 points. There was a lot of doubt about this team's potential after the Jacksonville State game, but we knew the true ability of this team. And we finally showed it in a big statement away from home--and a sod game at that!
Now the big challenge is can we maintain the same level of play this weekend as USF comes into Doak. They're a good team and this is our first time playing them in school history. We know that they're going to come in with the mindset of trying to prove that they're the best team in Florida, and we have to be ready for them.
It should be a fun atmosphere. The blackout didn't turn out that well, and hopefully the white-out should be just the opposite. I wish I could be there to see everyone eating breakfast at the tailgates around the Stadium, and that noon kickoff should be a lot of fun.
I'll be back next week as we go up to Bean Town to play Boston College. We need your support this weekend, and Go 'Noles!
