Firstly, it was Veteran's Day (observed, I guess) which meant the 82nd Airborne dropped 4 paratroopers into the sky who, to a trooper, landed pretty much dead-center of the field (I literally had no idea that you could be that accurate with a parachute). They brought the flags AND the game ball.

And then a pair of F-18's buzzed the stadium at the end of the Star Spangled Banner. It was AMAZING (I am about 11 years old at the sight of a fighter jet in the sky).
The point is, UT hit the field, and on the first drive by Texas Tech, I got a bit nervous. Tech manhandled Oklahoma this year, and we've had issues with Tech in recent years. Yes, Texas Tech lost last week's game pretty badly, but every week is a fresh start, so I really didn't know what to expect.
