Tho Pitt backfleld starred offensively but it was p i t i f u l l y weak in Its attempt to break up tho i ir attack and the.

Southern CiUKornia threw nil over Rose Bowl, it seemed, and usually a BUTe-flugerel Trojan was under the ball when it camo down. Four times tho Trojans went into the air to score touchdowns.

A pasa that was grounded over the goal line took away Pitt's chance to score. Montgomery, the all-Amerlcan guard, played a n-.ce g;ime in the Hue for Pitt. Donchcss, another widely heralded Pitt star, did well defensively. Despite the slsw of Southern California's score tlui game held the interest of the 70,000 fans throughout. Pitt had no alibi.
