Galileo 35, Lincoln 0: Greatest turnaround in AAA History

The exchange had little to do with Galileo's thoroughly dominating 35-0 victory over four-time defending champion Lincoln in the 86th Turkey Day Game before about 3,500 fans at Kezar Stadium on Thursday.

But it had everything to do with the greatest turnaround in Academic Athletic Association history.

Losers of 18 straight coming into the season and 28 of 29, the Lions (9-3) rocketed straight to the top in one magical season thanks to the leadership and all-around play of quarterback Dylan Nelson, a potent, balanced running game and a sturdy, sound defense - all in vivid purple and white display while claiming their record 16th section crown, but first since 2001.
