The Countdown 2009: 73 Days to Go

As in 1973, the year of Larry Munson's famous Andy Johnson call in Knoxville. Georgia QB Andy Johnson, an Athens native and a star QB for Athens High (now Clarke Central), faked the pitch on an option late in the game. The UT team bit and Johnson walked into the end zone, Georgia won 35-31. One of the surprising things about that play was that when Johnson faked the pitch, he actually dropped the ball, but it bounced up right back into his hands as UT had installed astroturf. Listen for Munson's call at the beginning of this video.
"My God, Georgia's just beaten Tennessee in Knoxville."
