In ESPN describes in its chronicle of the The 100 most memorable plays, performances, and moments that define college football:

Only four other ends had won the Heisman Trophy, but that's not what made Michigan receiver Desmond Howard's 93-yard punt return for a touchdown against Ohio State in 1991 so special.

I smell a Victorian Era rat.
