Pasadena, New Year's Day, 1934. Coming from the far side of a single wing formation, Al Barabas scores on a superbly concealed end-around play* to defeat favored Stanford 7-0 and take the Rose Bowl championship. Columbia's greatest sporting moment? Probably. The greatest moment in college football history? I can't think of a more deserving candidate.

* So well concealed, it might better be referred to as a football, football, who's got the football play.
