Then, with less than four minutes remaining, Ottawa quarterback Rick Cassata com- pleted a 60-yard touchdown pass to Hugh Oldham. Gerry Organ converted the touchdown and his single on a missed field goal earlier in the quarter still left Ottawa trailing 16-14. But with less than a minute to play, Cassata set up on a last-gasp, third-down gamble and again hit Oldham for a 60- yard touchdown. On his final score, Oldham leaped high for the pass and was hit by defender Jimmy Dye as he came c'own.
