MEMPHIS (Dec. 16, 1974) - Two Vol sophomores teamed up for the winning score in the 1974 Liberty Bowl. Randy Wallace, subbing for the injured Condredge Holloway, threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Larry Seivers with 2:44 left in the game to subdue the Terps 7-3.
Seivers outleaped two Maryland defenders for the winning score. Until that time, Maryland had the better of it.
Led by All-America tackle Randy White, the Terps had kept the Vols bottled up throughout the cold December night in Memphis.
Terps got a second quarter field goal and almost made it stand up.
Mike Gayles, who gained 106 yards in 17 carries, was named the Vols'
outstanding offensive player. Defensive end Ron McCartney was named
the Vols' defensive standout.
