In one of the great moments of Cotton Bowl history, the Owls' Dickie Moegle was on his way to a 95-yard touchdown gallop when he was brought down on a jarring tackle by the Tide's Tommy Lewis. The only problem was that when the play began, Lewis had been sitting on the Alabama bench! Lewis's explanation was as eloquent as it gets: He simply said, "I'm just too full of Bama." Two nights later Lewis appeared with Moegle on the Ed Sullivan Show, and the Texas Legislature made him an honorary citizen, on the unarguable grounds that "Anybody that's got that much spirit deserves to be a Texan."
