In 1980, during the Florida–Georgia Game, deep in their own territory, with a perfect season on the line and only a minute left in the game, Georgia quarterback Buck Belue hit Scott at the Georgia 25-yard-line in stride. Scott darted through Florida's secondary and reached the end zone with only seconds left.
Long-time Georgia radio announcer Larry Munson's play-by-play gave the game and play its name:
Florida in a stand-up five, they may or may not blitz, they won't... Buck back, third down on the eight. In trouble! Got a block behind him... Gonna throw on the run—complete on the 25. To the 30, Lindsay Scott 35, 40, Lindsay Scott 45, 50, 45, 40—Run, Lindsay!--25, 20, 15, 10, 5, Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott!!
The game kept alive Georgia's chance for the national title, which they ended up winning.
In 2010 Robbie Burns published Belue to Scott!: The greatest moment in Georgia football history which details this memorable play.
