Agincourt is one of the great battles in US History, and 1984 Maryland-Miami is on BTN
The 1984 Maryland Miami (YTM) game remains one of the great football comebacks of all time. It is especially striking because the protagonist, Frank Reich, went on to lead the Buffalo Bills in their epic playoff comeback against the Houston Oilers some years later.
The 1984 game is a great, treasured piece of college football history.
And it has as much to do with the history of the Big Ten as the Wars of the Roses have to do with the history of the United States. Pity, too--I would have loved studying 15th-Century Plantagenet feuds in AP US History in high school. No beef with Maryland, but this seems a bit hard to adjust to.
