WOW! National TV, 1 The Astrodome. NCAA Game of the Week For the University of Houston the 1965 football season began with all the earmarks of a spectacle. The Coogs started their twentieth year of collegiate football by playing aerial-minded Tulsa in the nationally publicized Astrodome. To add awe to the first football game in the Dome, NBC broadcast the contest to millions of fans throughout the United States as the first National Collegiate Athletic Association Game of the Week of 1965. Big Red figured to look great "in living color." The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes were certain to be slightly less offensive after the graduation of All-America quarterback, Jerry Rhome. Pass catching sensation Howard Twilley was still with the Golden Hurricanes, but there was no proven quarterback to throw to him. Houston had all the weapons to throw at Tulsa in buzzing atmosphere of their glass-topped playpen. Mike Spratt and auspicious sophomore Warren McVea provided speed to burn, and the defense led by Captain Cotton Guerrant had looked tough and quick in practice.
