Rice Running Back Has a Dream Game

Dickie Maegle had the kind of football game on September 25, 1954 that little boys dream about.  The Rice All-American carried the ball just five times against Cornell but gained 178 yards and scored four touchdowns.

An all-sports star at Taylor high school, Maegle was picked in the first round of the NFL draft in 1955.  He played pro ball for seven years before retiring to private life in Houston.
