Wayyyy back in August, Kasey and I decided that we needed to make a trip to a Tech game sometime this season. We chose to go big and drive to Norman for the OU game. Neither of us had been to Oklahoma before, so why not?

Little did we know, this wasn't going to be Tech's proudest season.

However, considering the way things have turned out, we knew before we made the trip that it might be a rough game to watch.

We did NOT know just HOW rough.

Taylor Potts (QB1 of the Red Raiders for the past two seasons) went to our high school and is one of Kasey's closest friends. Hence the reason that she has decided to be a Red Raider fan for the past couple of years. I'm guessing that's not going to last after this season. :)

Here we are in our little Tech section... 70 rows up in the endzone with freezing winds. Those Sooners must love their visiting teams. We seem to be smiling, so this picture might have been taken during the first five minutes when the score was still 7 to 7.
I don't need to give you the dirty details of the rest of that game. Just know that we never scored another point. And that OU scored many, many more. It's a good thing that I went into the game with the oh-so-positive attitude that we had no chance of winning. Even with that attitude it was a heartbreaking thing to witness.

After the game we had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory which was absolutely DELICIOUS. The next day we decided to roam around OU's campus for a little while before lunch. It was gorgeous. I loved the brickwork mixed with the pretty fall colors. It sure would be neat if we had a fall in west Texas.
All in all it was a great first visit to Oklahoma. I plan on forgetting the score of the game at some point down the road though.

I can't believe there are still leaves on the trees, much less color. Guess that is due to a longer warm spell. That tree is just gorgeous though.
