Ed Tunnicliff, who scored the winning TD in N'western's 1949 Rose Bowl victory, died Tue. at 95, according to a university official. California led NU 14-13 late in the 4th when Tunnicliff took a direct snap on a trick play and ran 43 yards to make it 20-14. An INT on the NU 10 stopped a last-ditch Cal drive. In 2008 Tunnicliff told me he carried a defender the last 7 yards & thought: "I'm going to get to that goal line if I have to carry the whole stadium. He weighed 195; I weighed 155."

Trailblazing broadcaster Irv Cross, who died Sun. at 81, was in Ara Parseghian's first N'western recruiting class in 1957, played both ways and was NU's 1961 male athlete of the year in football & track. Cross said in his memoir: "Other schools were willing to cheat; one offered me $500 and a 1957 convertible Ford Fairlane. Parseghian said, ‘We can't offer you anything except a first-class education and an opportunity to play in the Big Ten.' I told him, ‘Coach, I'm on my way.'"
