When was our last big win in Football that actually had a great impact on our program?

I believe you have to go back to 2012. Get ready for this...

In week 9 we beat NMSU to get back into the top 25 at #23

In week 10 we beat UTSA to go up to #19

In week 11 we beat Texas State to remain at #19, but went to #20 in the BCS poll knowing that we were now in the drivers seat for the Orange Bowl.

So, IMO the last big win we had in football was in San Marcos Texas against the Texas State Bobcats. How were we to know that our job hunting HC and his OC would check out after that game?
