Yards to Glory: 'Best friends forever'

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 Pat Haden's touchdown pass to J.K. McKay to win the 1975 Rose Bowl for USC over Ohio State is the choice at 38 yards.

And here's what I wrote about the connection between the current USC athletic director and his right-hand man.

38. Best Friends Forever

Pat Haden, J.K. McKay team up to win Rose Bowl

Jan. 1, 1975: USC athletic director Pat Haden and his right-hand man, J.K. McKay, have a long history, together and as Trojans. Not only are they boyhood pals, but Haden connected with McKay for a 38-yard touchdown with just more than two minutes left in the 1975 Rose Bowl, a score that set up the two-point conversion that gave the Trojans an 18-17 win over Ohio State. So their collaboration has worked for USC before.
