Yards to Glory: Sirr Parker slants to a title
By ESPN.com staff
On Monday, we began a week-long project looking at the most famous touchdowns from 100-plus yards down to 1 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 A&M's only Big 12 title came in dramatic fashion, landing running back Sirr Parker on our list with the best 32-yard touchdown of all-time.
Dec. 5, 1998: It's perhaps the biggest play of the Big 12 era for Texas A&M, helping the Aggies win their lone Big 12 title over No. 1 Kansas State. In the second overtime, Parker caught a short slant from Branndon Stewart, eluded a defender and outran another who dragged him down just after he crossed the goal line, for a 32-yard touchdown that gave Texas A&M the 36-33 win and a trip to the Sugar Bowl.
