OLD SCHOOLS TIE

NEW HAVEN, CONN.

This is an article from the Nov. 1, 1954 issue Original Layout

Two of the East's top teams placed their hopes for undefeated and untied seasons on Sophomore quarterbacks Saturday at the Yale Bowl before 37,000 fans. Colgate, gambling all the way with 19-year-old unsung Guy Martin, almost won. Yale, with the highly publicized Dean Loucks directing the attack, almost lost. But with less than two minutes left the Elis brought in veteran passer Bob Brink to gain a 13-13 tie.

Martin was the whole story for Colgate. Entering in the second period after Dick Lalla, all-East star, had faded, he passed and ran his team to a 7-0 lead.

Yale took the second half kickoff, moved 95 yards on 15 running plays to tie the score. Then, with the third period almost gone, Martin picked the Red Raiders up again and carried them to a second touchdown which Fullback Ed Whitehair scored on a six-yard buck. Martin's conversion attempt hit an upright and bounced back—no good.

It was Yale that drove for the final score and had a final chance to win. But it was only fitting that this game, full of parallels throughout, should end on the same note. Vern Loucks' kick went up a little to the right and banged against the upright, falling back on the field—no good.

THE EAST

I guess, when discussing the East, Army would have to be the first team mentioned. They stand in a class by themselves. Somewhere along the line they might be halted, but I doubt it. Yale and Navy, the second best team in the East, have the manpower and desire to defeat them. But this is a remote possibility, not a probability. Among other independents, Colgate remains unbeaten, though tied.

In the Ivy group it still looks like Yale which sports a 3-0 record in league competition. The Big Green of Dartmouth, after a meager beginning, opened its five-game group slate with a 13-7 win over Harvard and cannot be overlooked this Saturday against the Elis in Yale Bowl. Yale looks like the real McCoy, but Dartmouth is offering a dangerous challenge. Meanwhile, if there's throat cutting, Brown could slip in the back door, knife in hand.
