Legendary broadcaster Keith Jackson passed away at the age of 89 on Friday night, leaving the sports world, especially the college football faithful, in shock and sadness.
Jackson spent more than 50 years in the booth and is considered "the voice" of college football. That's a fitting moniker for him, as he possessed that iconic catchphrase, "Whoa, Nellie," and nicknamed the Rose Bowl "The Granddaddy of Them All."
Speaking of the Rose Bowl, Jackson's last broadcast took place in Pasadena and is one of the greatest football games ever played: the 2006 BCS National Title between Texas and USC.
Let's take a listen to Jackson's final call, which is still guaranteed to induce goosebumps a dozen years later:

"4th and 5, the national championship on the line right here..."
"...he's got it. Vince Young scores."
Simple, yet powerful. Longhorns fan or not, that call -- the final of Jackson's legendary career -- will live with college football fans forever.
Rest well, Keith.
