Nearly 63 years have gone by since Roy Riegels scooped up a Georgia Tech fumble, spun around and ran 65 yards toward his own goal line, but that run by the California center who became known as Wrong Way Riegels remains the single most famous--or infamous--play in Rose Bowl history. Riegels, now 83 and afflicted with Parkinson's disease, was on hand Thursday when he and nine other college football personalities were inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.

Roy Riegels, whose wrong-way run during the 1929 Rose Bowl game ranks among the most famous plays in football history, died Friday in his sleep at his home in Woodland, Calif. He was 83. Riegels was the California center when he picked up a Georgia Tech fumble on Tech's 20-yard-line, spun around and ran in the wrong direction toward his own goal. California quarterback Benny Lom, sensing what was wrong, pursued Riegels, but could not catch him until he reached the one-yard-line.
