The beginning of the Steve Ramsey era. "Sophomore quarterback Steve Ramsey led the Eagles in their opener by passing for three touchdowns and running for another. Fullback Vic Williams turned in 77 yards rushing on 11 carries....The Mean Green, led by Joe Greene and Johnny Mata, hobbled the Bulldogs and held them to 44 yards rushing and 72 passing while the Eagle offense rolled up a total of 333 yards."

Freshman year. First time to Fouts. First date with future wife. Incredible game. Now that was a great day to be a fan of the Green and White!
