Countdown To Football Season: 62 Days

Our daily countdown to the return of Texas football continues with yet another reason to love the fall in Austin.

Backup quarterback Matt Nordgren gave Longhorn fans one of the most memorable plays of the 2005 season when he broke free on a scramble, had a clear path to the end zone, dropped the ball for no reason whatsoever, had it bounce back in to his arms, and rumbled in to the end zone.

The touchdown rush was Texas' final score of the day in a 62-0 win over Baylor.

YouTubery: The Nordgren run comes in at the 4:18 mark of the video below, but the real gem of the tape is the Limas Sweed one-handed catch in the first minute.
