A Look On The Bright Side: Fifty Years of Messin with Texas

The last time a PSU football team lost a game in the state of Texas, Buddy Holly was still in Lubbock High School.Buddy_holly_cropped_jpg_medium

Since losing to Texas Christian 20-6 in 1954, Penn State has not lost a football game in the state of Texas, winning all nine games played there. Throw in the 38-15 1996 Fiesta Bowl win vs Texas and PSU is 5-0 all time versus Texas Teams in Bowl Games.

In fact, PSU has throttled the Texicans when playing in their great state by the aggregate score of 202 to 78, outscoring the 'boys' by a 2.6 to 1 ratio. This is actually worse than Paterno's record versus Bear Bryant (about 2:1)

So, saying a big THANK YOU to Texas for contributing to making Penn State the #1 Bowl Team Winner in the FBS,

Read Em and Weep, Midnight Cowboys!

1962 PSU wins at Rice 18-7

1964 PSU wins at Houston 24-7

1971 PSU beats Texas 30-6, Cotton Bowl

1974 PSU beats Baylor 41-20, Cotton Bowl

1980 PSU wins at Texas A&M 25-9

1989 PSU wins at Texas 16-12

1999 PSU beats Texas A&M 24-0, Alamo Bowl

Buddy, here comes that Nittany Lion team again!

For The Glory,

Joe From Boalsburg
