    Name our RB, that RB, and the University.

    It is now a little known fact that Jim Brown was not only a monster at running
    back at Syracuse, but also an All-American on the lacrosse team there. He
    also lettered in basketball and track.

    Good job Carol and Bronco Bible.

    Of course, I had to look this one up but the following is interesting:
    Final score Rams 23 - Giants 17

    1950s: The Birth of Overtime

    Many football fans regard the 1958 NFL Championship Game as the first overtime game in NFL history. Indeed it was the first playoff overtime game, but it was not the first-ever. That occurred three years earlier on August 28, 1955 in a pre-season game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New York Giants.

    The two big city teams played at Multnomah Stadium in Portland, Oregon in front of 22,222 onlookers. Led by the likes of Charley Conerly and Hall of Famer Frank Gifford, the Giants scored twice in the first quarter to take a 10-0 lead. Tank Younger of the Rams scored on a five-yard run in the second quarter to make the score 10-7 at halftime.

    Los Angeles scored twice in the third quarter to take a 17-10 lead, but it wasn't until the middle of the fourth quarter that New York got back on the board. Alex Webster provided a three-yard touchdown scamper to knot the game at 17-17.

    The final gun sounded and neither team had scored thus thrusting the game, and the NFL, into overtime for the first time. The match would not have gone into overtime if it hadn't been for the game's promoter Harry Glickman. On a whim, he asked for the league's permission for overtime should the occasion arise. Needless to say, he could not have been luckier.

    The sudden-death period, however, did not last very long. The Rams won the toss and, guided by Hall of Fame quarterback Norm Van Brocklin, constructed an 8-play, 70-yard drive that culminated with a two-yard TD plunge by Younger just three minutes and 28 seconds into the extended play.

    The game was not witnessed by many people since it was not televised. None-the-less, the bout laid the foundation for the NFL to adopt the overtime rule for regular season games, finally being approved in 1974.

    As a side note, another innovation was incorporated during this game. The field yardlines were marked from zero to 100 instead of the traditional goal lines to the 50. Not surprisingly, this trend never caught on.
