Transcript Strong UH Defense Stops Florida Wave The Cougars opened the season with a 21-13 win over Florida State. A rugged UH defense came back to frustrate FSU most of the evening, turning away the powerful Seminoles time and again. After FSU had gone 91 yards to score on its first possession, defensive end Carl Cunningham and defensive back Tom Paciorek began to shine. Cunningham blocked a field goal and an extra point attempt and Paciorek picked off three Seminole passes. The UH defense covered for an offense that lost three of five fumbles. The Cougars tied up the game with an 80-yard Bo Burris to Warren McVea aerial and Ken He- bert's extra point. The next time UH got the ball Burris hit Hebert for 28 yards and six points for a 14-7 half time lead. Dick Spratt took a FSU punt 81 yards to score early in the third quarter. Burris' two touchdown passes gave him the school record in that department. FSU's whopping total of 91 offensive plays was the greatest number ever run against the Cougars. UH had gotten off to a winning start. Defensive back Bud Norris is airborne after missing a frantic leap and swipe at the ball. Warren McVea heads goalward on the 99-yard play after snaring Bo Burris' perfect pass. Dave Petersen slows up in his futile chase as McVea reaches the goal line on the record-tieing play. Tom Beer goes to his knees after curling back in front of Seminole safety Marty Kolbas. Linebacker Steve Boots entangles himself in the legs of Paul Gipson on a third quarter play from the UH 24-yard line. Cornerback Bill Campbell tries to elude Rich Stotter and Bill Cloud after intercepting a Bo Burris pass. 146 Cougar Aerial Show Dazzles WSU Defense Big Red bombed Washington State 21-7 in UH's first home game. John R. Bender, a WSU graduate and UH's first football coach, named our athletic teams after those of his alma mater but the namesake Cougars showed poor respect for their elder's pass defense. WSU drove 60 yards to score early in the first quarter on an 8-yard pass from Jerry Henderson to All-American end Doug Flansburg. Bo Burris and his mates then put on a passing display of their own. Burris hit Captain Dick Post for scores on passes of 1 1 and 29 yards but the pass play of the evening came on UH's second TD. On first down Burris took the snap well inside his one yard line and faded back into the end zone. He fired the ball just before being hit. Warren McVea made a fine over- the-shoulder catch at the UH 38 and outran the defense. The 99-yard play tied an -NCAA record. 147
