The Historical is up over at the mothership. This week we look at the 1966 Florida vs. Georgia game when Vince Dooley's Bulldogs derailed Heisman hopeful Steve Spurrier's quest to lead the Gators to their first undefeated season. We also examine the 1903 Georgia Tech vs Clemson game. The 73-0 blowout prompted Yellow Jacket supporters to redouble their efforts to lure the Tiger's coach, John Heisman, to Atlanta.
Mark Ingram, Alabama's first Heisman Trophy winner, is hugged by John David Crow who won the award in 1957 as a running back at Texas A&M. Crow is the only player under coach Paul W. Bryant to have won the trophy. The two met on Dec. 15 at a reception for open only to former Heisman Trophy winners prior to the banquet where Ingram was officially presented the trophy. Also pictured are former Heisman award winners, Steve Spurrier, Billy Cannon, Howard Cassady and Johnny Lattner.
