Yards to Glory: 'Pick-six'

8/2/2011

A football field is 100 yards long, and each yard marker has produced immortal memories in college football.

ESPN.com is looking at some of the most famous touchdowns in college football history for each and every yard marker, and Alterraun Verner's interception return against California in 2007 is the choice at 76 yards.

76. Pick-Six

Alterraun Verner seals UCLA win over Cal with interception

Oct. 24, 2007: California, which notably lost to Oregon State a week before and blew its shot to be No. 1, was driving for a comeback win in the final two minutes, but Alterraun Verner intercepted a Nate Longshore pass and sprinted 76 yards to the end zone with 1:33 remaining. Neither team would do much of note for the rest of the season. The Bruins improved to 5-2 but would lose five of their final six games, and coach Karl Dorrell lost his job. Meanwhile, the 10th-ranked Bears became snared in a downward spiral that would see them lose six of their final seven games.
