SPUR OF THE MOMENT

Gainesville, Fla. | Oct. 29, 1966

The score was tied, 27-27, and Florida had stalled at the Auburn 24. When quarterback Steve Spurrier lined up to kick a field goal, the Tigers didn't bother to rush. Who thought he would kick? Spurrier knuckled one over the crossbar, the Gators won, and a legend was cemented. When the Heisman Trophy ballots went out a week later, it was no contest.
