But the Houston SEC Alumni group just could not wait to compete on the gridiron, so they concocted a new way to decide which university reigns supreme: turtle races.

That’s right, the 600 alumni gathered and rooted for the turtle representing their respective alma mater. And since the turtle tagged with the interlocking AU won, one would suspect that there must have been a fair amount of burnt orange and navy blue in attendance, willing the turtle to victory. What can we say, except that our turtle must have found its inner tiger and might have been singing this song while crossing the “goal” line.
