Baton Rouge, La. | Oct. 31, 1959

LSU star Billy Cannon gathered in the punt of Ole Miss' Jake Gibbs at the Tigers' 11. The Rebels led their biggest rival, 3-0, threatening the defending national champion's 18-game winning streak. But Cannon shook off a couple of tackles, hugged the sideline and never stopped until he won the Heisman Trophy. Recordings of the radio play-by-play of Cannon's return will be available at LSU tailgates throughout this fall and for many to come.
