<strong>1984: The 'Beat Texas' hat</strong><br>

When a rain storm hit during the 1984 OU-Texas game, Switzer grabbed the now-infamous hat from a team trainer. "The rain was pouring down. I couldn't see. The damn water was in my eyes," Switzer said. "I think I got it from a manager or someone on our sidelines." The game ended in a controversial 15-15 tie.
