Transcript Houston, Dec. 4 . . . Scoring nineteen points in a football game is not unusual, but when they are scored in the final minute and thirty-three seconds of play it's something to watch. The Cougars ended with a .500 average and a victory when they defeated Detroit 19-7. Houston scored first in the second period when Halfback Donn Hargrove climaxed a 77-yard march with a 10-yard scoring run. Verle Cray kicked the extra point and Houston led 7-0. The game advanced until the final minute and one-half with fumbles, pass interceptions and punt exchanges. In the final 93 seconds of the game and season, Cougar Quarterback Jimmy Dickey hit teammate Jim Baughman with a nine-yard pass for the second touchdown. The Titans from Detroit came right back with two passes good for 57 yards and their lone score. With only six seconds remaining, Quarterback Dickey kept the ball and ran 56 crowd- roaring yards to give Houston a 19-7 victory. The win gave the Cougars a season record of five wins, five losses and second place in the Missouri Valley Conference. It was the final game for Houston Coach Clyde V. Lee who announced his resignation the following Monday afternoon.
