KaVontae Turpin's 99-yard kickoff return for a TD against OU last year

 

- I searched and searched and searched for a photo or video, but Quincy Butler had a 99-yard pick six against Southern Miss in 2004.  If memory serves me correct, he didn't have a clear path to the endzone - he had to cut back several times and broke multiple tackles before finally finding paydirt.  Play seemed like it took minutes.

 

...and a bonus 99:

ML, is this card one of your collection?

I have one of these although this is just an image I pulled off the internet. My collection is in a state of disarray at the moment, but I keep track of what I have in a massive Excel spreadsheet. I might try and find a card for each day of the countdown if I remember.
Fun fact: I am currently aware of 26,157 cards featuring former TCU folks. I have 14,118 in my collection.

The previously-mentioned 1998 Sun Bowl

 

-Another play I can't find a video or a photo of, but Reggie Harrell scored a 98-yard touchdown on a pass he caught from Brandon Hassell at Arizona in 2003.  The Frogs won that game by the Ticket-friendly score of 13-10 on a Nick Browne field goal in overtime.  It was John Mackovic's last game as Arizona's head coach.

 

...and a bonus 98:

Time for TFH True Confessions: Who was in the mass hysteria on the field after that game? Anyone we know in this picture?
