SMU Athletics


Fort Worth, Texas | Nov. 30, 1935

The game was bigger than Texas: No. 1 SMU against neighboring No. 2 TCU and Slingin' Sammy Baugh. With the Horned Frogs leading late, 14-13, the Mustangs have fourth-and-four at the TCU 37. Out of punt formation, Bob Finley throws a 37-yard touchdown to Bobby Wilson. SMU wins, 20-14, and goes to the Rose Bowl. In the stands, to the benefit of us all, six-year-old Frog fan Dan Jenkins falls in love with college football.
