(This is easily the most disturbing football program I’ve ever seen. Click in on it for a closer look.)
It wouldn’t be unreasonable to fear a let down after the emotional A&M victory the week before, especially since King Hill wound up in the hospital with a broken nose. He vowed he would play anyway, though.
Still, how well could someone play if they were worried about something like that? Pretty well, it turns out. Hill had a 93-yard touchdown run in a 20-0 victory.
Here’s the Thresher article on the game. Note that football coverage has now moved to the front page. Just to be clear, the Brown Award discussed in the story at left was an award for neatest dorm rooms.
Bonus: One of the stories above mentions that a traveling squad of 37 flew up for the game. How did they get there? Braniff.
