The ball was on the 1 yd line and he took the snap in the end zone (shotgun, I take it). Tying the longest TD run of 99 yds set in 1979.
I looked up the 1978 Clemson-Maryland game to see how long Rusty Atkins run was against us. It was the record at the time - 99 yds!
I look it up and found a Washington Post article. Was this actually a major newspaper?
"So, 55 seconds later, the fourth quarter began as the game had started: even. Clemson and Maryland each staggered for a series, 70 yards in 10 plays to Brown's 14th touch-then the Tigers marched in orderly fashion, down of the year, a five-yard run around right and after a fake to the fullback.
That put the Tigers up, 28-21, with 7:30 left, and Maryland's next and last chance to score came with just over two minutes left, and the Terps with a first down at the Clemson 11."
