With it being the final day of the Big 12's four-day extravaganza, here's the final installment of my Way Backs for this week.

Here are a couple of notable Big 12 historical points that took place earlier on this date.

Sept. 20, 1960: No. 4 Texas 17, California 0 (Berkeley, Calif.) -- The Longhorns started their run to the national championship by rolling up 311 yards rushing against a struggling Golden Bears defense. Jim Bertelson and James Street each scored touchdowns as the Longhorns posted their first of two shutouts for the season.

Sept. 20, 2003: Marshall 27, No. 6 Kansas State 20 (Manhattan, Kan.) -- The Herd won the "Attrition Bowl" in a game where both teams started backup quarterbacks. Butchie Wallace rushed for 112 yards and the Marshall defense provided two goal-line stands and forced four turnovers to snap KSU's 41-game home win streak against non-Big 12 opponents.
