University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker announces his presence to the world on Sept. 6, 1980 as he absolutely demolishes and demoralizes All-SEC safety Bill Bates from Tennessee, and pretty much the rest of the Volunteer team. With UGA trailing 15-2 at halftime, Coach Vince Dooley inserted the true freshman Walker into the lineup for the first time and as they say, the rest is history! Dawgs upset the Vols in Knoxville, 16-15, and a Legend is born. Georgia went on to win the 1980 National Championship by beating Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. Walker won the Heisman Trophy his Junior year, 1982.
