Transcript Houston, Oct. 9 . . . Guard Verle Cray kicked an 11-yard field goal with about four and a half minutes remaining to play to give the Cougars a 10-7 win over Texas A&M in the Houston home-opener. Forty-two thousand fans were on hand to see the Cougars' first win of the season. Besides Cray's important field goal, the play of Quarterbacks Jimmy Dickey of Houston and Elwood Kettler of A&M highlighted the game. Both Coach Clyde Lee and Aggie Coach Paul Bryant agreed, however, that Dickey was the difference for Houston. After a scoreless first quarter, the two teams battled evenly until midway in the second quarter Houston began a 73-yard touchdown drive. The Cougars scored with about three minutes to go in the half, on a pass from Dickey to sophomore end Ronnie Emberg good for eight yards. The Aggies took the Cougar kickoff as the third quarter began and brought it back to their own 38. An A&M drive- carried to the Houston 25-yard line. There, with last down and seven yards to go, Ketter passed to Bennie Sinclair on the Houston two. Two plays later Kettler went over on a quarterback sneak for the touchdown. He also kicked the extra point to tie the game at 7-7. After Cray's field goal, the Aggies tried vainly to get back into the game. Time ran out on them as they had a second down on the Houston one-foot line.
