By Ted Miller
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 Early Doucet's touchdown grab that earned LSU a 35-31 victory at Arizona State in 2005 is the choice at 39 yards.

Early Doucet catches winner in first game after Katrina
Sept. 10, 2005: LSU sleepwalked into the fourth quarter against Arizona State in its first game after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the Gulf Coast, but left with a monumental victory. With 1:13 left in the game, Les Miles went for the win on fourth-and-10 from ASU's 39-yard line. JaMarcus Russell heaved a pass to the left side of the end zone and connected with Early Doucet, who kept one foot in bounds, giving the Tigers the 35-31 victory.
