' In fact, they had scored only 38 points in their previous six games.

'. The Bisons' amassed 520 yards in total offense and their 373 yards on the ground was the most by. a,. Bucknell team since 1954. . ' . The , Generals came to Lewisburg boasting the number one passer in the NCAA division III in quarterback Jack Berry. The Bisons defense rendered Berry ineffective as he was able to complete only 7 of 19 passes and threw two interceptions. . Berry had attracted scouts from the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Jets to Memorial Stadium Saturday. The Jets scout apparently didn't think he was watching a future replacement for Joe Namath as he packed it in at half-time. . Bob Curtis', BU coach, said that it is impossible to single out any outstanding individual prformarices on 'his team 'due to the amount of playing time everybody had. Eight, different Bisons, put points on the board witty tailback Mike Pensabene scoring two touchdowns while two freshmen, Mike Cosamano and Matt 'Wochele, each gained their first yarsity tallies. "We're riding a crest mentally right now," said Curtis. "Our attitude is the best it's been all year." , Curtis expects to get a good week of -practice out of squad this week and hopes to carry the Bisons' winning ways to' Hamiltdn, N.Y., Saturday where they will be looking to this point." even uieir .recora ai q- against Colgate. , Colgate will be smarting form a 38-6 defeat at the hands of powerful Lehigh; the Bisons' final opponent of the season in Memorial Stadium Nov. 15. "They've had a lot .of big .games this year," said Curtis of Colgate. '.'That was . a' big game for them Saturday against Lehigh since Lehigh looks like they are going to be one of the t o p teams in Divison II this year." . . "Hopefully, they've" just played too many big games this year and maybe they'll be down against us and we'll be ready to put it together," said Curtis.'
