    Last kickoff returned for a TD?

    I was thinking about our special teams play the other day and could not recall the last time we returned a kickoff for a touchdown. I did a few interweb searches and it appears the last return for a touchdown was in 1999 by Troy Davis? Not sure if what I found was correct. Anyone recall a more recent one?

    Last year against rutgers, but it was called back. I feel like we had one called back against Baylor too

    Jarvis will get more than one in the next few years... Guaranteed

    Re: Last kickoff returned for a TD?

    I wonder if it will be Jarvis and Lenz back there or maybe Shontrelle if healthy

    I would imagine Horne will stay back there as well...

    I started looking around the web to see if I could find the longest stretch of kickoff return futility. Before the one against TT, I would think our drought might be right up there.

    I seem to recall Jarvis having a 71-yarder returned for a TD but having it called back in one of our later games...

    Re: Last kickoff returned for a TD?

    Last "true" kickoff return for a TD was Troy Davis against Colorado in 1994.

    Reeves had the last actual one against Tech in 2010, and as mentioned, Jarvis had one against Rutgers that was called back. On a pretty debatable block in the back I might add.

    Troy was out of the NFL in 1999

    That game was in 1994 in Boulder, and I was there
