Vinny Testaverde........

Who were the two players in Super Bowl I who played on opposite sides in the game but attended the same college.
They both started and one was on defense and one was on offense.
"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, it part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that is good, and all that could be again. Oh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come."............Terence Mann

Herb Adderly - DB for Green Bay
Fred Arbanas - TE for Kansas City

They both went to Michigan State

What is the most points ever scored in a college football game. What was the score and who were the teams?

(Just for giggles, this same game holds a distinction for another reason -- Neither team registered a first down -- One team never gained enough yards for a first down, the other team scored on the first play every time they got the ball. The game was ended in the second half with 15 minutes left to play!!)

1998 Holiday Bowl, a 23-20 win over Nebraska.

In the 1979 Holiday Bowl, Indiana beat BYU after a failed last second 27 yard field goal attempt by BYU. Even though he had made three of three for the evening, including a 46 yarder, the BYU kicker yanked the kick to the left and BYU lost the game. What was the name of the BYU kicker?
