In one of the great moments of Cotton Bowl history, the Owls' Dickie Moegle was on his way to a long touchdown gallop when he was brought down on a jarring tackle by the Crimson Tide's Tommy Lewis. The only problem was that when the play began, Lewis had been sitting on the Alabama bench! It was one of the best pre-ESPN highlight plays ever, and as a measure of its impact, both Moegle and Lewis were flown from Dallas to the CBS television studio in New York, where two nights later they both appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. It wasn't quite Tonya vs Nancy, but then again it was a kinder and gentler age.
