Transcript The Cougars journeyed to Memphis on November 9 to complete the third and last link in a road series which included Ole Miss, Georgia, and Memphis State. UH finished their southern swing in grand fashion, beating the Tigers with a monotonous but effective ground attack, 27-7. A stiff wind and temperatures in the high 30's held the crowd at Memorial Stadium to 35,000 but nothing held back the determined Cougar running attack. Paul Gipson rushed for 140 yards and left the Memphis defense with more than a few bruises. Running backs Carlos Bell and Jim Strong added more yardage on the ground while QB Ken Bailey wriggled through the Tiger line for 71 yards and two TD's. Left, Jim Strong weaves his way through a maze of bodies. Below, Richard Harrington intercepts Memphis State pass as teammates Paul Shires (43) and Allen Summerford go for ball. Coogs pound Memphis Statepeel Idaho U Far right, tight end Paul Daulong snares a long pass from QB Ken Bailey and heads for paydirt with the Idaho defense in his wake. Right, linebacker Charlie Hall downs Idaho runner Jeff Guillory. 102 In 1967 the University of Idaho came to Houston for a football game against the Cougars and lost 77-6. In 1968 Idaho made the same mistake and lost by a similar margin, 77-3. Split end Elmo Wright was the star of the show this year, catching four TD passes and rolling up 249 yards through the air. The hapless Vandals managed only a field goal during the contest and trailed 42-3 at the half after limiting UH to seven points in the first quarter. The Cougars also broke the school record for total offense in one game with 793 yards, prompting a sports writer to wonder if Astroturf has a life-time guarantee. 103
