Roy Riegels Running The Wrong Way

On January 1, 1929, a young man named Roy Riegels was playing football for Georgia Tech against UCLA in the Rose Bowl. In the second half of that game UCLA fumbled or lost the ball and Roy picked it up. He quickly ran down the field as fast as he could, all the way to the goal line for a touch down. There was just one problem. He had been running the wrong way and it was the UCLA goal line and not that of Georgia Tech. The game ended with UCLA the winner because Roy Riegels ran the wrong way. (A story told by Evangelist Bobby Murr)
