On Oct. 7, 1967, the campus of Baylor University was bustling with parents eager to learn about their children's school. That night they filed into Floyd Casey Stadium for the seventh annual parents' night as the Bears knocked off Washington State 10-7.
The game was slow getting started in the first quarter. Washington State had only three first downs, while the Bears had two with both teams combining for 45 yards rushing.
Unlike the Bears, which had no attempted passes, the Cougars attempted four but did not record any completions in the opening stanza. Each team had two fumbles but managed to recover both.
Just when things did not seem to be turning around for either team in the second quarter, Baylor placekicker Terry William Cozby made a 30-yard field goal to put the Bears ahead 3-0 heading into the break.
The Bears' lead evaporated with 6:57 in the third quarter, as the Cougars marched on a 10-play, 58-yard drive that was capped off with a one-yard touchdown pass from Jerry Henderson to Delbert Carmichael. That touchdown gave Washington State its first lead of the game, 7-3
After a muffed Washington State punt, Alvin Flynn found Bobby Green from 21 yards out in the corner of the endzone for the Bears' only touchdown of the game.
With Washington State threatening to take the lead with just over a minute remaining, David Hupp sacked Henderson to preserve the Bears' three-point victory.
