HOUSTON (Dec. 30, 1972) - Condredge Holloway turned in his most electrifying performance of the season, completing 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards and rushing for 74 yards in 19 carries, to lead the Vols past Louisiana State 24-17 in the 1972 Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl.
Holloway, who was named the game's outstanding player, led the Vols to a 24-3 halftime lead, scoring twice and throwing a touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Young. But it remained for senior defensive back Conrad Graham to make the big play that finally subdued the Tigers.
All-America Bert Jones had led the Tigers to two second half scores
and was threatening a third when Graham cleanly broke up a fourth
down pass at the Vol 10 to preserve the victory. Vol defensive lineman
Carl Johnson was named the defensive player of the game.
