Transcript Tradition, Spirit and Role Reversal The History of the Beauty Bowl The Beauty Bowl is a 27 year tradition at the University of Houston. The first games were played where the University Hilton now stands. The first three games were between Law and Bates Halls(1967-1969). When the Moody Towers opened in 1970, the women from the North Tower battled against the women from the Quadrangle. One year later, the game site moved to Little Jep Stadium where Cougar Place is now. The games were played there until 1975. In 1976 the game was moved to Robertson Stadium, formerly Jeppeson Stadium, and because of the rain on the traditional Beauty Bowl day, the game was postponed until after Homecoming. This and the 1987 Homecoming game are the only games to be played after Beauty Bowl. In 1981, women from Cougar Place were added to the rosters of both teams. Although the names of the teams are changed almost annually, and the location of the game has varied, nothing has dulled the sharp rivalry that exists year after year. Regardless of who wins the year before, each team comes back with even more spirit and motivation. Homecoming week is a time that is deeply seeded in tradition. One of those traditions that has been with us for twenty- eight years is the Beauty Bowl. The Beauty Bowl is a game in which residents of the Quadrangle and the Moody Towers come together to play one grueling game of flag football in hopes of capturing the Powder Puff title. Only this time it's the women who play the game and the men who stand on the sidelines and cheer. The game is played the Thursday before the Homecoming game. For the most part, it is a game where Cougars get together to promote school spirit and have fun. The players consist of women from their respective dorms. EdithLerma Human Relations Management major, said, "People think girls don't know corner from safety when it comes to football, but we like to prove them quite mistaken." Perhaps the most interesting spectacle of the game is the cheerleaders. Men from the dorms lay on the makeup pretty thick, put on skirts, wear wigs, and prop balloons inside their shirts. Fransisco Canepa, a mechanical engineering major, said he participated because he "heard it was a lot of fun. You make a fool of yourself and it doesn't matter." The fun doesn't stop at just cheering for their teams; they compete in the Ms. Beauty Bowl Pageant. This year's Beauty Bowl Queen was Lee Schuppenhauer, a junior finance major. He was chosen at halftime when he received the loudest applause from the audience. The Powder Puff title was secured by the Quad Squad in a seventeen to six win over the Towers of Powers. The Towers of Power said that the Quad Squad cheated and had the flags inside out. But it's not about winning or losing, it's about who plays the game. An audience of almost a thousand people, including parents who were participating in the family weekend, showed up at the game to give their support for those who took part in the Powder Puff game. - Arty Bahena A determined Tower of Power strives to make it past an unshakeable Quad Squad Defense.
