It was 20 years ago today. Perhaps the most famous catch in college football. Colorado Buffaloes Football were playing The University of Michigan at “The Big House”. 5:08 left in the game and the Buffs were trailing 26-14. CU Heisman Trophy winner Rashaan Salaam scores to make it 26-21. Michigan ran the clock down to :21, and then punted. The Buffs were left with 15 seconds, and 85 yards to go. Kordell Stewart unleashed a 73 yard Hail Mary pass to Michael Westbrook to win the game. 106,000 Michigan fans walked out of the stadium in complete silence.
