Game of the Century
40 years ago . . .
1969 Texas vs Arkansas
The below Youtube is still difficult for me to watch, and I was 14 at the time and remember the game well. ABC covered the game which was billed as the "Game of the Century" and it was #1 Texas (9-0) versus #2 Arkansas (9-0). 1969 season marked the 100th anniversary of college football, and the game was moved from its usual mid-October date to Dec 6.
The President (including then Texas U.S. Representative George Herbert Walker Bush) flew down for the game at Fayetteville and Hogs jumped out to 14-0 lead, and scored again to make it 20-0 but that TD was negated due to a holding call. Texas rallied and won 15-14 in the 4th quarter and broke the hearts of the Razorback faithful...again.Arkansas vs Texas Game of the Century
