45 Years Ago Today: 'Give Peace a Chance' and Buffalo-Holy Cross on ABC


I could research and write a full post on this, but I don't think I'd manage any better than UB's archives.

"The televised Holy Cross game on the afternoon of October 31, 1970 received the most attention; but not for the actual football game. The game, won by U.B. 16-0, is now a mere footnote in UB history. The real story was the events that took place during halftime."

Some believe the events of this game to be the inspiration for Don McLean's band who 'refused to yield.'
