In this July 12, 2014 photo, a bow fisherman scans the surface of the Illinois River for Asian carp during the Peoria Flying Fish Festival & Bow Fishing Tournament.

TEXAS 41, USC 38. Vince Young's score with 19 seconds left, and subsequent two-point conversion gave the Longhorns a three-point lead and too little time for Heisman-winner Matt Leinart to drive his Trojans into field goal range. The Longhorns' win denied USC a three-peat.

CAL 25, STANFORD 20. Known simply as "The Play," the bizarre game-winning score featured five laterals during a kickoff return and culminated with Cal's Kevin Moen scoring as he crashed into the Stanford band, which was already streaming onto the field.

AUBURN 34, ALABAMA 28. Auburn pulled into a 28-all tie in the 2013 Iron Bowl with 32 seconds left, just enough time for Alabama to mount a drive. The Crimson Tide moved the ball to the Tigers 38-yard line, prompting coach Nick Saban to call for a game-winning 57-yard field goal. The kick fell short in the end zone, right into the arms of Chris Davis, who raced up the left sideline for the thrilling game-winning score.

MIAMI 31, NEBRASKA 30. The Cornhuskers scored a touchdown with 48 seconds left in the 1984 Orange Bowl. But rather than settle for the tie, coach Tom Osborne went for the win on a two-point try. Unfortunately for Nebraska, quarterback Turner Gill's pass was tipped, and the Hurricanes claimed the national title.
