Stands are crowded with spectators at University of Oklahoma's Owen Field, in Norman, Oklahoma, for a game between the Oklahoma "Sooners" and "the fighting Irish" of Notre Dame, on November 16, 1957. Although Oklahoma came into the game with a 47 game winning streak,they lose this game to Notre Dame, 7 to zero.
In the telling play, Quarterback Bob Williams (number 9) throws to back, Dick Lynch (number 25) , who runs around the right end, untouched, for the only touchdown in this upset game. (Stickles, of Notre Dame kicked the extra point to make it a 7-0 ballgame.)
Scene shifts to presentation of the Heisman trophy to halfback, John David Crow, of Texas A&M on December 11, 1957.
Sequence shifts again, to football fans watching Canada's Grey Cup Classic,on November 30th, 1957. They see a long Winnipeg pass intercepted by Hamilton player, Ray Bawel, who runs it back for a sure touchdown, when he suddenly falls, having been tripped by Winnipeg fan, David Humphrey, who was standing on the sideline. Bawel gets up angrily, and goes back toward Humphrey, but is restrained by officials. Another unusual 1957 game is shown in which the players contend with rain and mud that makes play practically impossible.
