In October of 1969 number 1 Texas and number 2 Arkansas went head to head in the first ever championship game that was arranged for television. President Nixon attended the game and the entire nation tuned in to watch a game like never before.
Filmmaker and producer Mike Looney captures the essence of the game in his documentary with interviews of players, coaches and fans; footage of the game, and insight into how this game changed the face of football and the reason it is still talked about so many years later.
The doors will open at 7p.m, and an introduction by Mike Looney will take place around 7:15 directly followed by the playing of the documentary. The Q&A with former players will follow the conclusion of the film around 9:30.
