Today, we began a week-long project looking at the most famous touchdowns from 100+ yards down to one yard, and we'll be taking a look at each of the Big 12 entrants on the blog throughout the week.
You can see the full project here.
Texas fans (the older ones, anyway) might remember our next entry, a loss that helped propel Arkansas to the only national title in school history.
Ken Hatfield takes home the title of college football's most famous 81-yard touchdown.
Oct. 17, 1964: The Longhorns were the defending national champions, ranked No. 1 and solidly favored to beat rival Arkansas for the fourth year in a row. But when Texas punter Ernie Koy outkicked his coverage, Ken Hatfield made the Horns pay with a well-blocked runback that propelled the Razorbacks to a 14-13 victory.
Arkansas shut out its next five opponents, then beat Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl to win the national title. Hatfield went on to coach the Hogs in the 1980s, and his .760 winning percentage remains the best in school history.
