It took a few hours, but with I-AA Jacksonville State's massive upset of Ole Miss in double overtime, the college football season has officially begun.

Jacksonville State trailed 31-13 in the fourth quarter before coming back to tie the game at 34 with 0:17 left in the game. Once in overtime, Ole Miss had little difficulty in converting touchdowns on their two possessions. Jacksonville State, however, found themselves down 48-41 with 4th and 15 at the 30 yard line. No matter, as Coty Blanchard found Kevyn Cooper for a touchdown at the back of the end zone to make it 48-47.

After the touchdown, JSU coach Jack Crowe called timeout, and took a cue from the Boise State-Oklahoma 2007 Fiesta Bowl by going for the win. Blanchard rolled out and, under duress, found his tailback for a shovel pass and the win. 49-48, David over Goliath.

It's safe to assume that massive cheers will go up when this score is announced in the stadia of the various SEC teams who are currently playing.
