Yards to Glory, non-AQs

August, 1, 2011
Today, ESPN.com began a look at the most memorable scoring plays in college football history -- by yardage. Everybody in the college football group came up with their top plays and then we narrowed it down to the best of the best.

Here are the non-AQ plays that are featured today:
  • UNLV scores on a 99-yard fumble recovery with no time left to upset Baylor in 1999.
  • Rice scores on a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in 1954 -- even though Dickie Maegle was knocked out of bounds by Tommy Lewis, who raced onto the field from the sideline without his helmet to take Maegle down.
  • SMU versus Texas Tech improbable ending in 1982.
  • Randy Moss' 90-yard touchdown on a screen pass against Army introduced him to the world in 1997.
