Friday Flashback: The Day Ty Detmer Won the Heisman


1990 was a magical year for BYU Football. A slow-talkin Texan by the name of Ty Detmer wowed the country with his golden arm all the way to New York and a Heisman Trophy win. In the second game of the season, the Cougars welcome the #1 ranked Miami Hurricanes (the U) in to Provo for an early September showdown. Ty led the Cougars to an impressive 28-21 win, on 3TDs and 406 yards passing. The game was seen on ESPN (The World Wide Leader in Sports and BYU Broadcasting's new BFF) and helped introduce Ty Detmer to the nation. Enjoy the highlights. (p.s. I apologize for the second song. Not my cup of tea either.)
