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.
