Transcript TOMMY BAILS Back, Senior Waco, Sept. 18 ... A brilliant collection of Baylor sophomores with revenge on their minds took advantage of every Houston mistake to hand the Cougars a 53-13 season opener defeat. A crowd of 22,000 watched sophomore Quarterback Bobby Jones lead the Baylor team to its highest total of points since 1942. It was also Houston's worst defeat. Jones scored two touchdowns himself and passed for two others, one of them a 65-yard spiral to another sophomore, Del Shofner. Helping the Bears along, the Cougars fumbled three times within their own 35 and once on the Baylor 43. Baylor, taking advantage immediately, scored shortly after each fumble. The Cougars' first score came in the second quarter when Jimmy Dickey, playing his first game for the University, directed an 80 yard march in ten plays for the touchdown. Fullback Jim Cravens scored from the one and halfback Don Bloom converted. Leading 20-7 at halftime, Baylor exploded in the third quarter for 27 points while holding Houston scoreless. Each team got one touchdown in the final quarter. A 67-yard pass from Dickey to sophomore halfback Joe Bob Smith set up the Cougars' last touchdown. Smith swept left end seconds'later for 16 yards and the touchdown.
