Perhaps the most impressive
win of the pre-Bowden era was actually a tie. But for FSU fans of the day, it was every bit a victory. The year was 1967 and FSU had lost its opener to Houston in the Astrodome. Next up was Alabama, riding a 21-game win streak. It looked like Bear Bryant could name the score. Instead, the Bear was embarrassed as FSU scored more points than Bama gave up the entire previous season.
Here's some rare play-by-play of the final drive as Kim Hammond and company knot the score with a minute left to play. The announcer is Alabama's legendary John Forney, an old-school gentlemen who paid tribute to FSU's tieing touchdown ("We cannot give Kim Hammond enough credit, that was a magnificent pass").
While the quality is not great -- with the radio reception fading in and out -- it's worth a listen as a monumental moment in a young football program barely 20 years old at the time.
