In the game billed as the "Grocery Bowl," 56,81 7 fans watched Houston beat Villanova 28-7 at Municipal Stadium. The loss was the fifth straight for Villanova. Meanwhile, the Cougars picked up their third straight win after an early loss to Baylor. Villanova scored first after an exchange of punts. The Wildcats traveled 83 yards for their touchdown. Sixteen seconds later, Houston Quarterback Jimmy Dickey ran the kickoff back 92 yards to put the Cougars back in the ball- game. Midway in the second period, Fullback Jack Patterson went over from the Wildcat 16 for another Houston touchdown. Patterson, having a good night, was Houston's top ball-carrier with 88 yards in 15 tries. Another standout for the Red and White was Halfback Donn Bloom. Bloom gained 72 yards in only nine attempts. The final Cougar touchdown came in the last quarter. Bloom set up the first of the two scores with a 33-yard pass to End Ronnie Emberg. Patterson then carried three straight times from the 14, finally scoring from the five. Quarterback Dickey passed 35 yards to converted Halfback Don Flynn for the last Houston touchdown. Flynn then kicked his third extra point of the night. Following the final score, Villanova took the kickoff and began a 75-yard drive to the Cougar one-yard line. The gun went off as the Houston line held the wildcats on the one.
