Here’s a beautiful color photo of the 1974 USC-Pittsburgh game. It features Pitt’s Tony Dorsett, one of the greatest tailbacks in football history.
The USC players are nose guard Larry Nunnally (93), linebacker Mario Celotto and either defensive tackle Art Riley (70) or defensive tackle Gary Jeter (79).
The Trojans were ranked No. 18. Pitt was No. 8. USC won, 16-7, even though QB Pat Haden got knocked out of the game. USC star tailback Anthony Davis rushed for 149 yards in 33 carries. Dorsett was held to 59 yards in 15 carries.
USC finished the season ranked No. 1 in the UPI poll. Two years later, Pitt would go 12-0 and win the national championship. Dorsett won the Heisman Trophy. Dorsett became a star with the Dallas Cowboys and has been inducted into the College Football and NFL Hall of Fame.
