Some 125 former players return to Tuscaloosa to dress out and play the varsity in the annual Red-White game. The youngsters win 20-7 but the 30,000 in attendance are entertained by the stars of the past. Robin Park-house, captain of the 71 defensive team, says he wishes there had been one more quarter to play, a sentiment not expressed by many of the other old-timers. A 52-yard pass from Scott Hunter to Tyrone King, a defensive back during his 1973-75 playing days, set up a one-yard sneak by Hunter for the veterans' lone score. The veterans' team ranged in age from 23-67.
