LOWELL DAWSONGame 35 | October 31, 1953 | Lowell "Red" Dawson
Dawson's Pittsburgh Panthers were ranked 14th in the nation when they came to Memorial Stadium to face the Gophers. Minnesota, in Wes Fesler's final year, was learning how to utilize the talents of Paul Giel, who won the Big Ten MVP Award in both 1952 and 1953. Fresh off a 22-0 upset of #5 Michigan, the Gophers destroyed Pittsburgh 35-14.
