Murray State Football 1948

Post by Ghughes »

Some of you may know that the football team represented the OVC in the 1948 Tangerine Bowl (Now the Capital One Bowl). Their opponent was Sul Ross State Teachers College out of Texas, and the game ended in a 21-21 tie. Of note was one of the players on the Sul Ross team, Dan Blocker. Who later on starred with Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, and Pernell Roberts on the TV western Bonanza. I recall seeing the trophy for that game in a case at Carr Health building many years ago. Does anyone know if that is still displayed anywhere on campus now?

Just a guess, but it should be either in the Racer Room at "The Bank" or in the building connected to the new practice facility.
