University of Vermont football started the season with a big
win. UVM beat down the Terriers of
Boston 55-0 Saturday afternoon at South Burlington High School. After a Chad Foley interception early in the
first quarter, next play, Jack Leclerc found Mike “Jumbo” McCormick on a
playaction pass for the first score in the game.

Hanover -- At the end of the third quarter of yesterday's junior varsity game, Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens crossed Memorial Field and asked his counterpart if he wanted the game clock to run nonstop through the final quarter. After all, the Big Green was leading by almost 40 points. David Motherway politely declined: "We came to play. This is what we said at the beginning and this is how we'll run it." So Motherway's squad, the University of Vermont club football team, absorbed a 57-3 shellacking by afternoon's end. For the second-year startup -- UVM's test tube, as it were, for the potential resurrection of a varsity football program that was dropped after the 1974 season -- it's not the score that matters. It's all about follow-through.
