Though the Horns still must beat the Madison Bison next week to wrap up the second half crown, the victory Thursday assured them of the overall title; ninnerup Madison being eliminated because of a loss and a tie. The "mean machine" now stands 8-0 on the season, having racked opponents by a combined score of 167-12.

The Longhorns failed to score on their initial possession when Rudy Rodriquez fumbled the ball inlo lhe wailing arms of James Smith at the Bronco 16. When the Broncos failed to move on their first set of downs it proved disastrous. James Smith got off a beautiful 33-yard punt. In fact it was a little too beautiful for the Bronc's who were unusually slow at getting down the field to cover the punt. Speed merchant Monte Harris obligingly took the ball at his 41 and raced 20 yards before he ever saw a maroon jersey.

By that time it was too late as the 141 pounder roared on down the field to complete a 59-yard touchdown with 4:09 left in the opening period. Eddie Hall then barreled over left tackle for the two points, giving the Horns an 8-C advantage.
