Miami | Jan. 1, 1991

No. 1 Colorado, leading No. 5 Notre Dame 10-9, in the 1991 Orange Bowl, had to punt from its 47 with 1:05 to play. Uh-oh: Heisman runner-up Rocket Ismail caught the ball at the Irish 9. He shook off two tackles and there went the Buffs' national title -- that is, until the Irish's Greg Davis got flagged for clipping the Buffs' Tim James. Irish fans argue it still.
