Bama Trivia...

on this day


Big Thomas Rayam blocks Ray Tarasi's field goal attempt with :13 to give Alabama a 17-16 win over Penn State in University Park. The Lions were literally inches away from the goal line when Coach Joe Paterno opted to go with what appeared to be a cinch field goal. The block becomes known in Alabama football folklore as "Desperation Block."
