Somehow, a few football games are seared on the mind deeper than others.
Ty Detmer had his Miami victory, Marc Wilson had that national TV blowout win over San Diego State, and Jim McMahon will always be remembered for the 1980 Miracle Bowl. Robbie Bosco had that win over Michigan to cap a perfect season. For Steve Young, it was a win over UCLA in Pasadena, and John Beck earned his fame with a crazy game-winning touchdown pass to Jonny Harline at Utah in 2006.
Every Cougar quarterback can go down the list and proclaim his favorite collegiate moments.
Max Hall has won more games than any quarterback in BYU history. So, heading into the final game of his collegiate career in the Las Vegas Bowl, what victories make his own Top 10 list?
I caught up with Hall and asked him to rank the Top 10 of his school-record 31 wins.
The occasion came after practice and it was right from the gut, a quick check-off list exercise. He took the list and immediately and without hesitation marked off his top five.
Then it got tougher to break them down and make a choice.
