81. Propelling Punt

Ken Hatfield's punt return beats Texas

Oct. 17, 1964: The Longhorns were the defending national champions, ranked No. 1 and solidly favored to beat rival Arkansas for the fourth year in a row. But when Texas punter Ernie Koy outkicked his coverage, Ken Hatfield made the Horns pay with a well-blocked runback that propelled the Razorbacks to a 14-13 victory.

Arkansas shut out its next five opponents, then beat Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl to win the national title. Hatfield went on to coach the Hogs in the 1980s, and his .760 winning percentage remains the best in school history.
