Yards to Glory: 'LA Story'

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 USC quarterback Todd Marinovich's touchdown pass to Johnny Morton to beat UCLA in 1990 is the choice at 23 yards.

And here's what I wrote about the Marinovich-Morton connection.

23. L.A. Story

Todd Marinovich and Johnny Morton take battle of L.A.

Nov. 17, 1990: USC quarterback Todd Marinovich connected with Johnny Morton from 23 yards with 20 seconds left as the Trojans nipped rival UCLA in a 45-42 barnburner. That was the second of two late, go-ahead touchdowns Morton caught in the final three minutes to give the Trojans a comeback victory in a back-and-forth affair, the highest-scoring game played between the two schools. Morton caught the second despite playing with a separated shoulder he sustained on the first. UCLA had taken a 42-38 lead with 1:19 to go before the Trojans drove for the dramatic final tally.
