The Texas Tech defeat ot TU should made a mess of the Big 12 South that year didn't it??
It sure did. Texas had beaten Oklahoma, Texas Tech then beat Texas, then Oklahoma crushed Texas Tech and went on to the BCS Title game to get beat. Texas Tech ended up not making a BCS Bowl game with an 11-1 season.
Even though I hated the outcome, I'm going with the Tech-Texas game of '08 as well. I went up to Lubbock for that game (didn't attend though, just tailgated and drank) and loved 59 minutes of it. It was on my birthday too, which should make it my least favorite game, but dammit it was enjoyable.
