USC vs. Michigan

Although officials ruled USC tailback Charles White (12) crossed the goal line before he fumbled in the 1979 Rose Bowl, this photo shows the ball coming loose before he reached the end zone. The Trojans would go on to win the game, 17-10, to finish the season with a 12-1 record. The Wolverines finished 10-2.
