#9- 1969 Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and George Bush are all in attendance to watch James Street to Randy Peschel to beat Arkansas in the "Game of the Century"
#10 - Tom Osborne goes for 2 rather than the tie in the Orange Bowl. Ballsy, but unsuccessful.
#3 - Kordell Stewart throws a damn near 100 yard Hail Mary to defeat Michigan, circa 1994.
#59 - BC beats Notre Dame by virtue of a missed field goal in 1993. The week before, #2 Notre Dame beat #1 Florida State and appeared ready to coast to a championship.
#5 - Vince Young makes the USC defense look like a bunch of little girls.
#49 - The 1997 Missouri-Nebraska game where the pass bounced off of a foot of a Nebraska receiver before being caught for the game winning touchdown.
NR - "Ricky Williams runs to the Hall of Fame..."
#51 - Colorado gets a fifth down against Missouri en route to a championship.
#2 - Tuba players still can't tackle.
NR- This is a stretch, but Virginia beat Florida State in a Thursday night ESPN game circa 1995. It was the first time ever that FSU lost a conference game.
NR- This might be on my top 100, but I'd be surprised if it makes the ESPN list: OU is beating A&M 70-0 and the coaches mutually agree to let the clock run continously. The fourth quarter is over in 15 minutes. This is the only time I have ever seen the implementation of this rule.
#15 - Surely the Statue of Liberty play in last year's Fiesta Bowl will make the list.
#20 - Another stretch, but there was a play in the 95 national championship game where Tommie Frazier broke 10 tackles on one play, symbolizing the absolute dominance of Nebraska over the college football world in the early 90's.
