Transcript Stillwater, Oklahoma, Oct. 16 . . . Using a couple of new faces in the lineup, the Cougars upset the Oklahoma Aggies 14-7 before a homecoming day crowd of 24,000. Leading the Red and White to the winning touchdown with about two and a half minutes left in the game were Quarterback Teddy Gray and Sophomore Fullback Curley Johnson. Just when it looked like Gray would be trapped, he ran for 11-yards and the touchdown. Johnson's hard runs had set up the score. He gained over half of the 88 yards in the drive. The Aggies scored early in the first quarter, the second time they had the ball. Quarterback Fred Meyers set up A&M's touchdown with a 41-yard pass to Houston's 25 yard line. Meyers later scored himself from the six. He also converted. The Cougars came back for a touchdown in the second quarter on an 11-yard pass from Quarterback Jimmy Dickey to Co-Captain George Hynes. After a scoreless third quarter, the Houston defense stopped three Aggie scoring bids in the final quarter. The three Cowpoke drives were halted on the Houston 16, 18 and 4. A&M was undoubtedly hurt by the loss of its first string Quarterback Meyers in the second quarter. The Cougars, too, were hurt by the loss of End Ben Wilson, who broke his leg during the last touchdown drive. JAMES BAUGHMAN Back, Senior UH OKLA.
