Perspective: The Mean Green are 1-47 all-time against ranked opponents, and the lone victory was 14-9 over No. 20 San Diego State on Nov. 2, 1974, at old Fouts Field. (Washington Post)

Didn't NT beat a ranked Tennessee way back when? I am probably mistaken about that.

If he wins this, that will change my mind, as to there being at least some hope that SL can actually pull off winning the conference in the next few years, because he would have just beaten a double digit win team and conference champ level team for the first time. That said, this will take more than one half of ball. Has to prove he can withstand adjustments from the other side. not a given if you ask me.

Weather helped a lot. Is this really all SL’s doing? UTSA fumbled multiple times due to a slippery ball.

Obviously its not all his doing. But he did have them ready to profit this time so far. Until now it was always so clear in these kinds of games, that even a good break or two was not gonna get the team there.

Wins over the dregs of the conference didn't really move the needle for me. But beating an 11-0 team is a data point that would be hard to completely ignore.

Defense is playing really well. Yeah, I know SL hired Bennett. But Phil may have single handed saved SLs job.

It will have been 5 in a row and a Top 25 team. The arrow was pointed upward before the first half of this game. There's a lot of people talking about the recent wins coming against bad teams. We got better somewhere along the way between now and at the beginning of the year and the bad teams we played at the beginning of the year.

This current team could win some of those early games. Some switch has flipped.

Like I said - I am Littrell's biggest hype man as long as we keep winning.
