Then, as four SWT defenders surrounded him, Smith pitched the ball back to runn- ing back Lembia Kinsler who streaked into the end zone. But a referee ruled that Smith had thrown an illegal forward lateral, and the touchdown was wiped out. Game films showed Smith pitching the ball from the 30 and Kinsler catching it just before crossing the 30-yard line. Perry's ensuing 51-yard field-goal at- tempt was wide, and the Wildcats never scored again. But the excitement was not over. Proffitt was intercepted in the end zone. Then, several plays later, with 9:30 left in the game, he fumbled a snap on ACU's next possession.

Nearly every Wildcat on the field had a shot at tackling him. Most teams in the country would con- sider an 8-2 season very successful. ACU was no exception. They reversed their 1980 record and tied with A811 and Angelo State for second place in the LSC. But the disappointment came with los- ing to SWT and not making the playoffs. The Cats had a slow start in the season opener against the University of Northern Colorado, which led late in the third quarter, 14-0. Then Steve Parker took the kickoff and blew past the UNC coverage for an 84- yard touchdown return.
