Oct. 25, 1975: North Texas pulls off one the “stunners” of ’75 under College Football Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry with a 21-14 win at Tennessee. RB Sears Wood scores all three touchdowns for the visiting Eagles, including the game-winner, a 98-yard kickoff return with 4:25 left in the game to break a 14-14 deadlock. Wood rushes for 121 yards before one of the largest crowds (72,000-plus) ever to see the Eagles play. The victory catapults North Texas to a 7-4 record, four straight victories to end the year and a composite mark of 30-7 over Fry’s final 37 games with the Eagles.
