Running for a TD at the Cotton? Bowl Moegle was tackled by a player off the other team's bench.  A TD was awarded. 

Yes on the alley oop but keep in mind Owens could sky and was an outstanding basketball player as 81alum pointed out
All through the 1950s there were basketball players experimenting with and showing off the "alley oop" which today we would call the lob pass.  RC Owens and Elgin Baylor pulled it off to each other repeatedly in college.   When YA Tittle passed the jump ball to RC Owens they borrowed the basketball name for the play (that RC had executed so often in basketball) and the name stuck in football.

Hickey probably knew the hoops maneuver and that's why he made the comment. Read Dan Maguire's 49er history of the 40's and 50's.

Why does the site ignore the name of the trophy given to Plunk, Harmon, Blanchard, Davis and others? It isn't even a four letter word starting with f.

Sent the link on to all my buddies, many non-Stanford fans among them. Just too good a story to not share.  :)

A Bama sub named Lewis came off the bench and tackled Moegle. The refs awarded a TD as Rice won the Cotton Bowl.

What happened when Tom Harmon was running for his fourth TD against Kal at Memorial in Harmon's     year?
