Tears do not come easily for Jackie Sherrill. If anything, they are a last resort, a reluctant concession, a luxury Sherrill rarely allows himself. But on Oct. 5, with about 2,000 mourners squeezed into Mississippi State University's aging Lee Hall auditorium, Sherrill's eyes betrayed him. He wept. Like a baby. Two days earlier, Sherrill had walked into his office shortly before 7 a.m.

Jackie Sherrill, the new coach at Mississippi State, was up to his old tricks against Texas on Saturday. Sherrill's Bulldogs came through with big defensive plays to upset the 13th-ranked Longhorns, 13-6, at Starkville, Miss. It was the sixth time in a row a Sherrill-coached team has beaten Texas. Sherrill, former Pittsburgh and Texas A&M coach, was out of football the past two years. "It was one of those days where our players didn't believe Texas would win," Sherrill said.

All that stood in the Bulldogs' way was lowly New Mexico, which had won one game in 11 tries that year. A blowout was all but guaranteed. And then the incredible happened.
