Alabama Player Leaves Sideline to Tackle Rice Running Back

A very unusual occurence took place in the 1954 Cotton Bowl Game. Rice running back Dicky Meagle was in the middle of what would have been a 95-yard touchdown run, when Alabama’s Tommy Lewis left the sideline to tackle him.  Meagle was given the touchdown.  It was one of three that he scored for the day, and the Owls won, 28-6.
