10/17 Entry @ 4 p.m. -- 25 Years Ago Today, the Fast-Break was Born

It was on this day in 1992 when head coach Bobby Bowden decided to make a change to his playbook to take better advantage of the skills possessed by his QB, Charlie Ward.

Prior to playing on the road in Atlanta against Georgia Tech, Ward had thrown 13 interceptions to only 10 touchdowns and a change needed to be made. After throwing 2 more interceptions against the Yellow Jackets and down 7-21 on the scoreboard in the 4th quarter, Bowden put Ward in the shotgun and the fast-break offense was born.

By air and on the ground, Ward accounted for 206 of the 207 yards on the final three drives to come from behind and defeat Georgia Tech late, 29-24.

Sticking to the new offense the following season, Ward was able to help lead the Noles to their first national championship and win the Heisman Trophy.
