Missouri led 17-14, and BYU had the ball at the Tigers' 14-yard line with about 30 seconds to play when BYU coaches sent in a play called "Fake right, 28 quarterback screen left."

That translated into a handoff from quarterback Steve Young to running back Eddie Stinnett, who started to run to his right. All of a sudden, Stinnett stopped and threw back across the field. The pass barely cleared the outstretched hand of Missouri defensive end Bobby Bell and was completed to Young, who sped into the endzone for a winning touchdown with 23 seconds remaining.

Besides the touchdown catch, Young threw for one score and ran for another, finishing with 314 yards passing.
