Stephens is the only QB to lead the Minnesota Golden Gophers to the Rose Bowl (1961, 1962).

In 1960, the starter finished the season with an 8-1 record and a National Championship. Minnesota claimed victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes 27-10 in one of the biggest games in the duo's historic rivalry, a game where both teams entered undefeated.



Go Gophers!!

Regardless of everyone's opinions as to rankings. Stephens is in good company.

Stephens is in a class by himself above and beyond any of the other "15" players. He was college football's first black all american quarterback during a time when many black athletes are barred from playing for colleges throughout the south
that must have changed the hopes and dreams of thousands of kids
