TWENTY YEARS AGO — After hitting his second shot into the trees in second playoff, hole Pete Powell hits his next shot from 50 yards out into the hole for a birdie-3 as he defeats Charles Moroney to win his second straight Cliff Weeks Memorial Match Play championship.

TEN YEARS AGO — Ty Detmer’s two-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Solomon with 1:56 left in the fourth quarter on fourth and goal caps off a 19-play, 80-yard drive that takes nine minutes and 22 seconds off the clock as Philadelphia upsets defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay 10-9.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Southern Mississippi running back Derrick Nix has 27 carries for 202 yards, the most by Nix since a win over Memphis in 1999, and two touchdowns as the Golden Eagles rally to upset the defending Big 10 champion Illinois Fighting Illini 23-20.
