Meta: I'll be taking over the Photo of the Week posts in the hopes that a collection of us folks can fill Chris' enormous shoes.

Here's a picture of Biggie Munn's famous "Pony Backfield" from the 1953-54 season. So called because they were tiny for their positions. They beat UCLA 28-20 in the 1954 Rose Bowl. But boy do they look magnificent on those ponies.
