Winners: Big 12 aficionados, Alabama (Purdue lost to ND by three!), Clint Chelf, Heart of Dallas (great performance), everybody that beat OSU this year (they look really good now), QB ratings, Bill Young’s stock, J.W. Walsh (winning me over).
Losers: everyone who woke up, B1G football, college football lovers (eight months of darkness), ACLs, Joe Randle fans (he’s gone), Gundy’s future OC (he thinks calling plays is easy now), Cotton Bowl vendors, fans who had to watch on TV (the awful announcing was chart-topping).
Uni Heisman: I’ll let Quinn have it. I don’t think he’s ever won it and the all-black with white kicks was pretty good.
Best play: probably the best play of Isaiah Anderson’s life.
Best player: Chelf, he was terrific. Of course, it’s easy to be efficient when nobody on the team you’re playing has ever broken five in the 40.
Best quote: Shoot, I’m going to coach until someone tells me I can’t. -Bill Young
Best photo: The one up top — that small man in the middle next to the kid in the orange hoodie makes $3.5 million to tell 19-year-olds where to run. Crazy.
Tweeter of the game: Andrew Mitchell won this with one tweet at the very end of the game…
What time does the #okstate game start?

Stat of the night: Hard to overstate this, but pending the Ole Miss/Pitt game — OSU is now the all-time college football leader in bowl win percentage. Like, including all the teams.
“KD lookalike” award: Mr. Gundy…
