Transcript BILLY POLSON Back, Senior Lubbock, Nov. 20 . . . Defeated before even leaving for Lubbock by poisoning or virus, the University of Houston footballers were only a shell of their usual selves as Texas Tech rolled to a 61-14 win. A crowd of 14,000 watched the worst defeat in the Cougar's short history. Given more as an explanation for the poor showing than an excuse, 22 members of the team were hit by illness. After leading 6-0 at the end of the first quarter, Tech scored with a second gone in the second to start a chain reaction of points. The Red Raiders scored a fantastic total of 42 points in the second quarter. Houston tried desperately to make a comeback in the second half, outscoring the Raiders 14-13, but the illness had taken its toll. Quarterback Frank Paul, praised by the coaching staff two weeks before for his fine end play, was again a Cougar standout, only this time at quarterback. Paul directed an 80-yard march for Houston's first score. Jim Baughman, senior right halfback, ran over from the six for the touchdown. With about a minute left in the game, Senior Fullback Tommy Bailes went for four yards and the other Houston touchdown. The win for Texas Tech evened the series at two games each.
