Transcript Football TOUCHDOWN by UH fullback Charlie Rieves in the Big Red's 17-0 romp over the Texas Aggies. MISS STATE—Taking to the road for their next game, the Cougars took on Mississippi State University and exhibited a powerful ground offense. Although the Big Red failed to score in the first half, they overcame a ten-point lead that State had established with a TD and field goal in the second quarter of play. Coming back strong in the second half, quarterback Lindsey sent backs Bolin, Rieves, Kuehne and Broussard crashing through the State line until the winning TD was scored. OREGON STATE — Not having played against a single-wing offense for two years caused the Cougars to fall short in their West Coast debut. Two quick TDs in the first quarter netted the Beavers a lead that the Cougars were never able to overcome. But through the efforts of press-box coaching, the Big Red was able to stop any more serious scoring threats. In a bruising, hard-fought battle, the Cougars lost the services of halfback Bolin in the last quarter, and of Co-Captain Kuehne for the rest of the season. TEXAS A&M—A highlight of the gridiron season came about in the Cougars' shutout against the Texas Aggies. It was the first time in the history of the series that either team had been left scoreless, and Cougar fans were delighted that A&M was the victim. Although the Cougars launched a successful offense, both on the ground and in the air, this game was a big defensive win for the Cougars. The two Big Red scores came in the first and last quarters, with Mitchamore kicking a field goal between the touchdowns. A crowd of 40,000 witnessed the milestone in Rice Stadium. 303
