It was called the “Game of the Century” and it was a battle of the titans between the unbeaten University of Texas Longhorns and the unbeaten University of Arkansas Razorbacks.
Played in 1969, UT was ranked #1 in rushing and #1 in the Associated Press Poll, while Arkansas was ranked #1 for scoring defense.  Texas averaged 44 points a game but the Razorbacks defense had held opponents to only 6.8 points per game.
Arkansas scored first and by the end of the third quarter was up 14-0 on a 29 yard touchdown run by Chuck Dicus.  Texas managed to get on the board when James Street scored a touchdown at the top of the fourth quarter.  The Longhorns made the two point conversion and trailed 14 to 8.  Texas tied the game with 3:58 left to play when Jim Bertelsen scored a touchdown and went ahead for good when Happy Feller hit the extra point.  Texas went on to win 15 to 14.
President Richard Nixon attended the game with U.S. Representative and future President George H.W. Bush and presented the team with a plaque proclaiming them National Champions.
