we missed a couple of our shots
and that blew our confidence.”
But the Aggies weren’t the
only ones suffering from a lack
of confidence.
TCU’s boy wonder, Dennis
Nutt, was held to just 12 points
— far off his 22.4 average in
Southwest Conference play.
And TCU coach Jim Killing-
sworth didn’t think the Aggies
aggressive man-to-man defense
was much of a factor in Nutt’s
poor performance.
“Dennis did a great job on De
nnis,” Killingsworth said.
But Tracy Mitchell and Car-
ven Holcombe were confident.
They picked up where Nutt left
off to score 25 of the Frogs 33
first half points.
The Aggies played good de
fense, but aggressive play wasn’t
enough, Gilbert said.
“We knew their offense,” he
said, “it’s the same one we run.
But everything they put up they
The Aggies turned the tables
in the second half. The duet of
Brown and Todd Holloway did
dominate the boards in the
second half the way Mitchell and
Holcombe did in the first.
Within a minute and a half,
the Aggies had slimmed the
Frogs lead to 40-36.
“We knew that in order to
win, Kenny and Todd would
have to hit from the outside,”*
Metcalf said. “This is the best
game Kenny’s had since the pre
season tournaments.”
It was a good game for Brown
who scored 16 points and grab
bed nine rebounds.
It was also a good game for
Holloway who came hack full
force from a strained knee suf
fered during the Houston game.
Holloway led the Aggies in scor
ing with 22 points and two cru

Raiders reign, 38-9,
rewrite record book
United Press International
TAMPA, Fla. — Marcus
Allen sparked the Los Angeles
Raiders to the most lopsided vic
tory in Super Bowl history,
dashing for a record 191 yards
and ripping off a record 74-yard
touchdown burst Sunday to de
molish the Washington Red
skins 38-9.
Washington, the defending
NFL champion, entered the
game as the highest-scoring club
in NFL history but it was the
Raiders, the black sheep in the
NFL family, who ran up points
in record numbers.
The 38 points were the most
ever scored in a Super Bowl and
the 29-point margin of victory
was the greatest in 18 Super
Allen, who came on strong in
the playoffs to help carry the
Raiders to the Super Bowl,
broke John Riggins’ record of
166 yards with a spectacular per
formance on Sunday and was
the unanimous choice as the
game’s MVP.
Washington, which trailed
21-3 at halftime, cut the lead to
21-9 in the third period. Then
Allen took over.
He pushed Los Angeles to a
28-9 lead in the third quarter
with a slithering 5-yard touch
down run and then ended the
Redskins-’ dream of a second
consecutive Super Bowl win by
dashing 74 yards for a touch
down on a broken play to end
the third period.
Allen applied the death blow
as time ran out in the third.
He began sweeping left end
only to be greeted by several
Redskins defenders. He re
versed his direction, eluded a
tackle by Ken Coffey behind the
line of scrimmage and then
bolted untoucheed up the mid
dle to complete the 74-yard
touchdown run.
It was the longest scoring run
in a Super Bowl, breaking the
record of 58 yards set by Balti
more’s Tom Matte in a 16-7 loss
to the New York Jets in 1969.
Allen’s TD came after the
Raiders’ defense came up with a
big play to stifle Washington’s
final hopes. With his club trail
ing 28-9, Redskins Coach Joe
Gibbs decided to go for a first
down on 4th-and-l at the Raid
ers’ 26. Riggins tried the left side
but was hit and knocked back for
no gain by Rod Martin and Mike

from two obscure reserves in the
first half to take a 21-3 lead.
Raiders reserve tight end Der
rick Jensen blocked a punt and
recovered it for a first-quarter
touchdown. Then backup line
backer Jack Squirek returned an
interception 5 yards for a TD
seven seconds before halftime.
Jensen broke through a block
by Washington’s Otis Wonsley,
blocked Jeff Hayes’ punt from
the 23 and then raced into the
end zone to recover the ball for a
touchdown just 4:52 into the
game. It was only the second
time in Super Bowl history that a
blocked punt had resulted in a
touchdown. Minnesota’s Terry
Brown had a similar score
against Pittsburgh.
Squirek, a little-used line
backer from Illinois, was in
serted into the game for his pass
defense skills after Washington
took over on its 12 with just 12
seconds left in the half.
Theismann faked a screen
pass to the right, wheeled and
lofted a screen to the left toward
Joe Washington. Squirek leaped
in front of Washington and
dashed five yards into the end
zone with seven seconds left in
the half for a 21-3 Raider lead.
The Raiders’ big-play style
also accounted for Los Angeles’
second score. Los Angeles took
over on its 35 early in the second
period, nursing a 7-0 lead.
Plunkett threw a 50-yard pass
down the middle to Cliff Branch
at Washington’s 15. Allen went
three yards to the 1 and Branch
then froze cornerback Anthony
Washington in his tracks with an
inside move and caught the 12-
yard touchdown pass from
Plunkett all alone in the middle
of the end zone for a 14-0 lead
5:46 into the second period.
Washington’s only score of
the first half — Moseley’s 24-
yard field goal — came after a
/3-yard march aided by a hotly-
contested pass interference call
against Raider cornerback Les
ter Hayes.
The call gave Washington a
first down on the Raiders’ 34
and Theismann’s 20-yard pass
to Clint Didier brought it to the
14. The Redskins pushed to the
Raiders 7 but Theismann’s pass
to Joe Washington in the end
zone was broken up and Mosely,
who earlier missed a 44-yard
attempt, hit to make it 14-3.
The 21 points tied a Super
Bowl record for first-half scor
ing set by Pittsburgh against Dal
las in Super Bowl XIII five years
Washington, which scored an
NFL-record 541 points this sea
son, managed only Moseley’s
field goal and the 1-yard scoring
run by Riggins in losing for the
first time in the last 12 games.
Riggins’ run prouced an NFL-
record, scoring in six consecu
tive post-season games.
Despite the big play by
Squirek at the end of the first
half. Washington came back at
the start of the second half, cov
ering 70 yards in nine plays to
cut the lead to 21-9.
Theismann’s 23-yard pass to
Charlie Brown keyed the drive!
and Riggins went over from the
1 for the score.
But Plunkett took Los j
Angeles right hack down the
field, covering 70 yards in eight j
plays. A 38-yard pass interfer-,
ence call against Darrell Green:
put the ball on the 30 and a six-!
yard pass to Frank Hawkins on ,
3rd-and-4 moved the Raiders to j
the Redskins’ 5. Allen squirmed j
up the middle for the score.
Allen’s 39-yard burst set up ,
Chris Bahr’s 21-yard field goal \
which pushed the Raiders tot
their record margin, topping !
the previous record of 35 points. *
The Raiders, now 3-1 in Su- i
per Bowjs, finished at 15-4 while 1
Washington, which had the best
record in the NFL during the J
regular season, wound up at 16- j
3. The Raiders, who were based
in Oakland before they sued the j
NFL and won the right to move I
to Los Angeles last year, won 3,
their third Super Bowl in four,[
They lost to Green By in Su- j 1
per Bowl II and then defeated
Minneota and Philadelphia.
The Raiders also became only 4
the second team to win three Su- j
per Bowls. Pittsburgh holds the /!
record with four.
The victory was worth
$36,000 to each of the Raiders q
while the Redskins earned
$18,000 each.
