They Don t count. They Only Salve feelings. Toss out the fact that the Webfoot out gained the victors 351 Yards to 304, and out first downed the Bucks 21 to 19. They Don t count either any More than do hits in a baseball Fame there in t any More the score favored Ohio state. 10-7. That s it. Still. The Webfoot could t have done themselves More proud even by winning. They said the game was t Worth seeing that it would t sell out and that Pasadena s most important grand Pappy game had been turned from the Sublime into the ridiculous. Instead it was one of the finest contests of the entire series which goes Way Way Back to 1902 when the Sug Jestion of George Wagner original advocate of the Holiday fray was branded As so ludicrous that he was All but Ridden out of town. It was a strange game too. Oregon did t punt once. There was t a single run Back of a kick because one of Ohio state s two tries went out of Bounds on Oregon s 17 and while the other carried into the end zone.

He proved it in the 1951 Orange bowl game when his Santa Clara Broncos. 13-Point underdogs whipped Kentucky. 21-13. Actually. Oregon never was As weak As painted. Nor was Ohio state As potent As its backers insisted. The truth is. The Bucks were the weakest team defensively to play in the bowl since the pc big ten pact was signed 12 games ago. With the score 7-7 in the third period Jack Morris tried a Field goal for Oregon. It was wide. If successful the ducks would have been out in front. 10-7. And the Way the game was going chances were Good the score would have remained there.
