Bizarre Football Game

In one of the most bizarre games in college football history on November 11, 1939, Texas Tech and Centenary racked up an amazing seventy-seven punts. Yes, you read it right--seventy-seven punts! Texas Tech punted thirty-nine times, Centenary thirty-eight times, both hitting the all-time record list. Sixty-seven punts were made on first down, including twenty-two in a row in the third and fourth quarters. Texas Tech finished with minus one yard of offense; Centenary rolled up a big thirty yards total. The final score was 0-0. Nobody won, nobody lost--nobody took many risks.
