Yards to Glory: Longhorns upset the Hogs

Last 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.

The spot for college football's best 18-yard touchdown ever goes to a dramatic score for the Longhorns a few decades ago.

Nov. 17, 1987: Trailing Arkansas 14-10 with 1:58 remaining in the fourth quarter, Texas started an 11-play, 56-yard drive. On the final play, Brett Stafford hit Tony Jones just inside the goal line. Jones was immediately met by two Arkansas defenders, but after withstanding two power hits, he fell into the end zone, clutching the ball with no time left to give the Longhorns the 16-14 upset victory over the 15th-ranked Razorbacks.
