The Big Shootout - The Life & Times of 1969 DVD
A perfect gift for the sports fanatic! On December 6, 1969, in Fayetteville, Arkansas, number one ranked Texas and number two ranked Arkansas met in the ”game of the century,” in celebration of the 100th year of college football. It was the first championship game arranged for television and the last championship game played with all white participants. With Secret Service men overlooking his 35 yard line seat, President Nixon was there, bringing along George Bush for company. Civil rights and protestors were there. God was even there, sending Billy Graham to deliver the pre-game invocation. Fifty million people watched on T.V., including LBJ. Bill Clinton listened on shortwave radio from England. The Big Shootout on DVD features over 20 minutes of outtakes with coaches and players.
