BURLINGTON, N. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1942
Rambling Rose Bowl, Durham, N. C.-—An underdog Oregon State eleven loved only by their coach and the few who trekked those 3,000 miles to see a transplanted Rose Bowl game convinced North Carolinians yesterday that other sections of these great United states also produced good football teams. The Beavers upset, 20-16, victory over Duke, was the most surprising occurrence since the Pearl Harbor incident.
Coach Lon Stiner, the talkative West Coast boss who told the writers his team was underrated and insisted that he would lick the undefeated and untied Blue Devils,
was the happiest man In the country last night as he dined on steaks rather than crow. As a result of His teams' performance yesterday afternoon Stiner became the miracle man of the country—a man sportswriters will listen to more attentatively in the future.
