Transcript VERLE CRAY Guard, Senior Wichita, Kans., Oct. 30 . . . Wichita University's title hopes took a definite upsurge as the Wheatshockers decisively defeated Houston 9-7 before a capacity-filled stadium of 16,115 homecoming fans. Wichita spotted the Cougars seven points, then came back strong in the second quarter and even stronger in the last half. A fumble seconds after the kickoff was recovered by Houston on the Wichita 34-yard line. Seven plays later Donn Hargrove scored from the seven. Don Flynn converted. Early in the second quarter Wichita capitalized on a Houston mistake. The Wheatshockers recovered a Cougar fumble on the Houston 44 and then went on to score in only eight plays. A Houston threat was stopped on the Wichita 27 just before the half ended 7-7. A third period blocked- Houston-punt set the stage for the Kansans' game winning safety. The Shockers took the ball over on the Cougars' 26 and moved to the three where they fumbled. Houston recovered but on the third down Quarterback Teddy Gray was trapped in the end zone by Tackle Darrell Hill to score the safety. Wichita allowed the Cougars to run only four offensive plays the entire last quarter. The Shockers took over the ball on their own 12-yard line with eight minutes and 12 seconds left and ran 23 consecutive plays in a drive that closed on the Houston 15-yard line as the game ended.
