Ranked fourth to start the year, the #2 Texas Longhorns defeated rival Oklahoma by ten points on October 11 and gained the top spot in the polls in late November. On December 6, #1 Texas traveled to Fayetteville to meet second-ranked Arkansas; down by fourteen points in the fourth quarter, UT rallied to win 15–14 in the season's "Game of the Century," attended by President Richard Nixon. With a wishbone option offense, the Longhorns won all ten games in the regular season, and returned to the Cotton Bowl Classic in Fair Park in Dallas. On New Year's Day 1970, the Longhorns met ninth-ranked Notre Dame, in its first bowl game in 45 years and second overall; their only previous postseason appearance was a win in the Rose Bowl in January 1925. Trailing for most of the game, Texas scored with 68 seconds remaining and won 21–17. On their final drive, the Longhorns faced fourth down twice. It was their twentieth consecutive victory, second straight Cotton Bowl Classic title, and third win that season in the stadium. Brown & white paneled football signed by 75+ players including: Bob McKay, Ted Koy, Cotton Speyer, Bill Atessis, Bill Zapalac, Steve Worster, Jim Bertelsen, Eddie Phillips and more. The ball is signed in black ink and in our opinion rate an overall 8 to strong 9. Accompanied by an ALOA from JSA.
