Let's see now, the Baylor Bears drove to Austin and defeated the Texas Longhorns, 30-22, on Saturday night in a Big 12 Conference grudge match.
And the Bears won despite a sub-par game from their most dynamic player, quarterback Robert Griffin.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Or, are the Bears the "mighty'' right now?
In a season where Baylor is turning plenty of heads for its sufficient play on the football field, the Bears turned many more heads Saturday when they won in Austin for the first since 1991. That last victory in Austin was back when George H. Bush was the President.
Afterwards, Baylor coach Art Briles -- who could probably run for mayor or any political office he wants to in Waco -- took pride in the toughness his team displayed in front of a massive crowd of 100,452.
"I am really proud of our football team, our players, our staff and our fans, because it has been a while since we have given any proof to believe, and people have really taken to it and supported it in a tremendous fashion,'' Briles said. "As a part of the football team, hats off to the people who are supporting us.
"And to our players, I think they are a resilient bunch and have great leadership in general and great senior leadership. And the guys always believe something good is going to happen."
The Bears are now 7-2 overall and are guaranteed of having their first winning season since they finished 7-4 in 1995. Baylor also continues to be in sole possession of first place in the Big 12 South with an impressive 4-1 record, and are ranked No. 22 in the latest Associated Press poll.
Maybe none of this should be surprising after all. Maybe a whole lot of folks are simply missing one of the greatest stories in college football this season.
Briles, who doesn't toot his team's horn, tried to put the win over Texas in perspective. He more or less said the Bears arrived a long time ago.
It just took some people a long time to recognize it.
"I think the thing that I am excited about is that we have seven wins on the board and we are in the middle of the Big 12 South (race),'' Briles said. "I am not looking at the (last win for Baylor in Austin) from 15 years ago because that does not affect our players.
"Our players came in here with the notion that we were going to play hard for 60 minutes and get out of here with a win, and that is all that we were concerned with.''
For those who are keeping score -- and there are many -- in less than a year Baylor has come out on the winning end of the stick against Texas in both of the major sports. The Bears swept Texas in men's basketball last season, three games to none, en route to advancing to the NCAA Elite 8.
Wasn't that -- the Elite 8 appearance, not the three wins over Texas -- arguably the greatest story in college basketball last season?
And now this head-scratcher in football.
Could what has transpired between Baylor and Texas over the past year in football and men's basketball alter things in the minds of recruits in both of those sports? Only the mommies and daddies _ and the recruits _ know for sure.
Griffin, who was just 16-of-24 for 219 yards, an interception and two touchdowns, said Baylor's years of struggles against Texas never came up during the week of preparation for the game. In their minds, Griffin and his teammates already knew they were on par with -- or better than -- the Longhorns.
Saturday, they went out and proved it.
"For us, it was another win,'' Griffin said. "The tide has changed this year.
"We are the team to beat and we are just going to keep rolling with that.''
The recruits are certainly paying close attention.
