Ben Gregory’s 80-yard punt return late in the fourth quarter lifted Pennsylvania to a 12-6 triumph over Texas at Hershey.

Ken Hebert got off what looked like a poor kick, but it took a big Texas bounce and Gregory grabbed it at the 20. He started to his left, then reversed field and broke down the right sidelines.

Texas had taken a 3-0 lead at halftime on a second quarter field goal of 33 yards by James Russell.

Pennsylvania turned the tables when Bob Bazylak of McKeesport hit Bog Longo of Pittsburgh on a 52-yard scoring play to make it 6-3 early in the third quarter.

Texas was stopped on the Pennsylvania three and Russell kicked a 21-yard field goal to tie the score.

Pennsylvania had a 151-77 edge in rushing yards, but Texas had 266 passing to 113. Three times Pennsylvania stopped the Lone Star players inside the 10.
