Dec. 6, 1969: President Richard Nixon (1969 NFF Gold Medal winner) looks on in Fayetteville, as No. 1 Texas comes back-from-behind to beat No. 2 Arkansas 15-14. Trailing 14-0 in the fourth quarter Longhorns' quarterback James Street scrambles 42 yards and takes the lead on UT's next possession. Texas defensive back Tom Campbell secures 15-14 victory by intercepting a Razorback pass intended for Chuck Dicus (1999 College Football Hall of Fame inductee) with a 1:13 left in the game.
