Down 14-0 to Texas in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, 1965, Alabama coach Bear Bryant sent an injured Joe Namath into the game for starter Steve Sloan. Namath, bad right knee and all, rallied the Tide on his way to the game’s MVP. Texas, however, stopped Namath on a goal line stand in the fourth quarter and won the game and a share of the national championship. (University of Alabama, Paul W. Bryant Museum)
