Guts, Fortitude, and Balls…
What a Team, what a Comeback. Omaha’s Own, the Creighton Bluejays, rallied late last night to claim a Signature W (many are saying a Statement W) against a very good 7-1 San Diego State team, with a packed house in San Diego. The Aztecs had only lost one time at raucous Viejas Arena since the start of last season. The Jays withstood their own start in molasses, but also San Diego State’s torrid 31-14 start.

In what was truly a team effort, our Jays battled back late in the 1st half, kept plugging away during the 2nd half, and finally took the lead with 6:43 left in the contest.
In addition to Doug and Antoine, Ethan Wragge, played BIG, with Jahenns, Grant, and Austin contributing well to the win. This was truly a team effort and the Jays gained a large measure of confidence with this particular win in an extremely hostile environment.
This was a BIG Game, a BIG Win, and will loom large come Selection Sunday.
Good work Bluejays! Go Big Blue!
There ain’t no ” I ” in Team.
