    [​IMG]A football field is 100 yards long, and each yard marker has produced immortal memories in college football.

    ESPN.com is looking at some of the most famous touchdowns in college football history for each and every yard marker, and*Kordell Stewart's Hail Mary pass to Michael Westbrook for Colorado to beat Michigan in 1994*is the choice at 64 yards.

    You can check out "Yards to Glory" here.

    And here's what Pat Forde*wrote about one of the most dramatic plays in college football history.

    64. In The Buff

    Colorado stuns Michigan in the Big House

    Sept. 24, 1994: The day Kordell Stewart and Michael Westbrook hit the mute button on more than 100,000 fans in the Big House. With Colorado trailing Michigan 26-21, Stewart dropped back, rolled right and threw a missile more than 70 yards in the air as time expired. Receiver Blake Anderson tipped the pass out of the hands of Wolverines defensive back Chuck Winters, and Westbrook leaped to grab the deflection before landing in the end zone. The play was designed for Westbrook to do the tipping instead of the catching, but none of the Buffaloes quibbled with the result.
