New Orleans's Jed Collins scored from one-yard out on Sunday, just like Mayes did for the Saints 23 years ago, both in winning efforts. In similar fashion, New York Jet Chris Ivory also found the end zone from 1-yard out, just as Broussard—then an Atlanta Falcon—did back when George H.W. Bush was President, but both did so in losing efforts.
Mayes actually scored twice that day, but would score just once more that season and never again in his career, which ended after two injury-plagued seasons with Seattle. For Broussard, his touchdown was one of 4 occasions he would score during in his rookie season.
Here's how the NFL Cougs performed in week 11:
Husain Abdullah, CB, Kansas City, 5th season: Posted two solo tackles—one on defense, one on special teams—in the Chiefs' first loss of the season, a 27-17 fall to Denver.
