Texas-Arkansas Game of the Century

1969. It was the 100th year of college football. Texas was ranked #1, Arkansas #2. It was hyped as the “Game of the Century.”

The Longhorns overcame turnovers and a 14-0 Arkansas lead to claim an exciting 15-14 victory. UT QB James Street hit Randy Peschel on a dramatic 4th-and-3 play late in the game for the winning touchdown. Texas had successfully converted a two-point PAT on their first TD. In a private collection.
