Transcript Houston, Nov. 6 . . . Playing their worst football of the season for the first two quarters, the Cougars came back in the second half to defeat Tulsa University 20-7 before a small crowd of 15,400. Only Tulsa's own ragged play enabled the Cougars to trail by only one point at the end of the half 7-6. Late in the first quarter Quarterback Jimmy Dickey passed to right halfback Jim Baughman from his own 37 to the Tulsa 40. Baughman shook off two tacklers and ran all the way for the score. Verle Cray's conversion was no good. Tulsa scored with 10 seconds left to play in the first half on a 22-yard pass play. After getting the ball for the first time in the second half, Houston marched 61 yards for a touchdown. Fullback Jack Patterson, receiving a tremendous block by Left Halfback Joe Bob Smith, went 10 yards for the score. Houston's final touchdown was the result of a 46-yard drive, aided by a 15-yard penalty to Tulsa. Kenny Stegall took a pitchout from Dickey and ran 13 yards for the six pointer. As the gun ended the game, Houston was on the Tulsa five-yard line with a first down as the result of a 24-yard interception return by Sophomore Fullback Curley Johnson.
