I get that people want to wear their tradition on their sleeves, but this could legitimately be a program shifting win.
It would be a game that people talk about for decades. Beating the No. 1 team, after the worst extended period in program history, with a first year head coach, a roster that sports less than 80 scholarship players, and a year after roughly 40 players bolted for other destinations.
If any game is worthy of storming the field, this would be it.
EDIT: This would also be the first win against one of the Big 3 since 2016. We clamor for a win over one of our Big 3 rivals every year, and to do it this week, against this team...that would be pretty special.
