College Football Highlights 2009

As the national championship game approaches, we take a moment to reflect on the standout moments of the 2009 NCAA football season.

  • Week 1: Just before the opening kickoff of his first game of the season, Tim Tebow wins the 2009 Heisman
  • Week 4: Defensive end Adrian Clayborn gets the momentum going for Iowa in their win over Penn State after he blocks a punt and returns it 53 yards, then kicks an onside kick, recovers the fumble, and leads the team downfield with an eight-play, 46-yard drive
  • Week 5: By riding out the clock at the end of its victory against Utah State, BYU achieves its time-of-posession goal of 31 minutes and 15 seconds
  • Week 9: The phrase "I think the basketball team is supposed to be pretty good this year" overheard in dining halls across the Notre Dame campus
  • Week 11: Boise State complains about how the WAC gets no respect through entire 63-25 win over Idaho
  • Week 12: Some team you've never heard of from a terrible conference you've never heard of continues its undefeated season
  • Week 14: West Virginia linebacker J.T. Thomas makes a genius—albeit a bit unorthodox—decision to catch a pass from Rutgers quarterback Tom Savage with two minutes to play, which, in accordance with NCAA rules, gives West Virginia possession of the ball
  • Week 15: Some guy in a suit taps Nebraska tackle Ndamukong Suh on the shoulder and hands him the Bronko Nagurski Trophy
