The 1916 Cumberland vs. Georgia Tech football game was the most lopsided in the history of college football, with Georgia Tech winning 2220
N W Missouri State repeat Div II title win in a Quadruple overtime.
Mayfield v Mahomes
I watch the Hail Flutie game from start to finish. Both teams left everything on the field. I remember Miami RB Melvin Bratton steamrolled over the BC defense and scored several TDs on the dive play.
A very wild game with an amazing finish was Colorado @ Michigan. Colorado at that time was loaded with NFL talent including QB Kordell Stewart and WR Michael Westbrook. Stewart won the game on a Hail Mary from long distance.
There was the #1 v. #2 The Game in 2006. That game lived up to the hype. There was talk both teams should play again for the title but Florida got the shot and punched THE Ohio State University in the mouth.
#5 turned me off college football for decades.
Came back rooting for WVU when I moved here in ‘02.....then came Luck and Holgorsen....gave me my Saturday afternoons back.
Iowa vs. LSU in the Capitol One Bowl, 2005.
Iowa wasn’t supposed to win but a last second TD nailed it in Hawkeye history.
1969 Orange Bowl. Kansas vs. Penn State. Best ever!!!
void my post 3
faulty memory i guess
UF -FSU 1997
2008 Texas Tech defeats #1 Texas with Crabtree TD.
Tennessee 14...LSU 13...1959
LSU, undefeated, with All American, Billy Cannon at running back...LSU recovered a fumble at the Tennessee 2 yard line...It took them to 4th down to score...
They pitched the ball to Cannon on a sweep going for 2 point conversion and win, but Cannon got stuffed at the one yard line.....
That was a tie? Then FU beat FSU in a rematch at the Cotton Bowl.
Oh yeah I remember that one.
No, 1997 was when then #1 FSU came into The Swamp and Florida beat them with a touchdown in the final two minutes.
It has been called by many, “The Greatest Game Ever Played in The Swamp”
They don’t like Alabama. Three Bama losses in their top ten. No wins. 2015-2016 Bama Clemson just as good with that onside kick. FU SI.
It’s hard to top “Kick Six”.
They left out the Sugar Bowl of ‘Bama v. Penn State where ‘Bama stuffed Matt Suhey (sp?) at the goal line.
Auburn winning on a 109 field goal return was pretty damn good.
