91. Miracle Man

Bobby Leach scores on kickoff following lateral

Nov. 13, 1982: Undefeated SMU, led by running back Eric Dickerson, entered the game ranked No. 2 in the nation. Underdog Texas Tech kicked a game-tying field goal with 17 seconds left and looked as if it was headed for an impressive tie. The ensuing kickoff bounced to the Mustangs and was muffed, but with the Red Raiders kickoff team bearing down, Blaine Smith threw a bouncing lateral to the sidelines and Bobby Leach caught it, returning it 91 yards for the touchdown and a shocking 34-27 win.
