Transcript ower Power Triumph Saturday, October 27, 7:30 the skills and plays they hope steamy look by dressing in lin- p.m. Robertson Stadium. The tension in the air was so thick you could wade through it. All right, so maybe it wasn't quite that dramatic, but the 22nd annual Beauty Bowl was nonetheless an intense spectacle. "Riding the Tide of Cougar Pride," the Programming Boards of both Moody Towers and the Quadrangle sponsored the event, a tradition since 1967, as part of Homecoming Week. The Beauty Bowl matched teams of women from the two complexes in a zealous flag football game. Some billed the Beauty Bowl as the "grudge match of the century," for the Towers had won the six previous years' matches. Though just for fun, the teams still practiced for weeks before the game. Under "expert" volunteer coaching, the teams learned would win the game. And they played with an enthusiasm that could have rivalled the "real" Cougar football team. Many believed this was the best Beauty Bowl ever, because of both the gridiron action and the fan support. "This Beauty Bowl was an outstanding, marked improvement. The turnout was almost three times what it has been. We had tremendous crowd participation," said Craig Oakman, the resident in charge of the Beauty Bowl. Providing comic relief were the two cheerleading squads — composed of men from the respective residence halls frolicking in women's clothing. Some of the lovely "ladies" even sported wigs and bows in their lovely locks. Others went for the sultry, gerie. When the game continued, people poised on the edges of their seats near the end of the fourth quarter, when the Towers gained a last-minute touchdown to close the Quad's seven-point lead to 14-13. The crowd was on its feet to see if the Tower's two- point conversion gambit would pay off, giving them a one-point lead and turning the tide of the game. It did, and although the Quad Squad fought valiantly to regain the lead, time was their enemy and the game ended with a 14-15 score. Tower Power triumphed for the seventh time in a row. "It was fun. It was exciting, but it pissed me off," said Quad Coach Albert Holden. ► D.
