Along with the 1934 Rose Bowl win over Stanford, this stunner over mighty Army ranks at the top of a short list of memorable moments in Columbia football history. With a 32-game unbeaten streak dating back to the beginning of the 1944 season, the Cadets were once again ranked up there with Michigan and Notre Dame at the top of the gridiron heap. But after spotting Army a 20-7 halftime lead, the Lions came roaring back on the arm of Gene Rossides and the sticky fingers of Bill Swiacki, whose diving catch on the Cadets' 3-yard line in the dying moments of the game set the stage for the win. An amusing sidebar to the game was the sight of General Dwight Eisenhower in the stands, waving an Army pennant with one hand and a Columbia pennant with the other. Within a few months Eisenhower was to become Columbia's 13th President.
