Probably my 3rd favorite win since being a frosh in '11 after 45-10 and TCU in '11

That is the definition of "snatching victory from the jaws of defeat"

You may have had a heart attack. Most stress I’ve had since the TCU game.

As a long suffering SMU fan, my mantra during all of the beat downs, is ...

"Two quick touchdowns, and we are back in this game!"

Today it finally worked!

Way to go Ponies!
Probaly won't happen...BUT...maybe it will!!

Finally got to go a game tonight after a few years of not being able to - what a game!

Overheard some Tulsa fans on our way out that were shell-shocked and still couldn't believe what had just happened. They certainly put up a good fight.

Pony Up! 6 - 0 hype!!!

I knew tulsa was tough. I just cant believe how tough our team is. Any SMU team before this would have waived the white flag and call it a bummer. This team with all probabilities against us somehow overcome everything. We truly truly seabiscuit this game. #PonyUp. 6-0 baby.

From ESPN: “SMU already faced down the death penalty in college football once, so perhaps entering the fourth quarter trailing by 21 wasn't so intimidating. Still, according to ESPN Stats & Info, teams facing that kind of a deficit were a combined 9-3,000.

Sonny Dykes likes those odds.”

Thank you Sonny. By being involved in the transfer market, SMU had leadership and depth. ANd the dept and talent counted in the 4th and overtime.
