Yards to Glory: Crouch ends OU streak

Monday we began a week-long project looking at the most famous touchdowns from 100+ yards down to one yard, and we'll be taking a look at each of the Big 12 entrants on the blog throughout the week.

You can see the full project here.

Every year, we talk about "Heisman moments" for the award's contenders, but Nebraska's Eric Crouch had one of the greatest of all-time, which gave him college football's greatest 63-yard touchdown ever.

Oct. 27, 2001: It's known in Huskers lore as Black 41 Flash Reverse Pass, the moment that personified Eric Crouch's Heisman campaign. The Sooners know it as the play that ended their 20-game winning streak that included the national championship in 2000. Leading 13-10 midway through the fourth quarter, Crouch pitched to Thunder Collins, who handed it off to receiver Mike Stuntz, a true freshman and a former high school quarterback. Stuntz hit Crouch 40 yards downfield, and he went untouched the rest of the way for the 63-yard touchdown that provided the 20-10 final score.
