Vitiello tied a school record with a 52-yard field goal and John Beerworth set yet an- other school record with his eighth inter- ception of the year. UMass not only totally out-played and out-classed B.C., but shut ' them out (40 yards total rushing, three first downs and zero points). B.C. had been humbled and UMass reigned as New England Champs. Without the services of Dave Bemis (out with a broken ankle) and John Beerworth (elegibility lost) the Minutemen headed into the Div. I-A.A. playoffs, first stop Reno, Nevada. They were greeted in the barren, chilly, city of sin by the open- mouth-insert-foot style of Nevada coach Chris Ault, who had guaranteed the peo- ple of Nevada that his 11-0 Wolfpack would down UMass. By the beginning of the fourth quarter, with UMass leading 44-7, Ault was unavailable for comment. Three touchdowns by Cliff Pedrow, a 96-yard kickoff return by Dennis Dent, a McEvilly to O ' Connor bomb, three recep- tions by Chris Kurtz and three intercep- tions by Kevin Sullivan, had quieted the Wolfpack mentor. In the words of coach Bob Pickett " It was a fantastic day for the University and the State of Massachu- setts. " The sweetest victory of the year launched the Minutemen into the Nation- al Championship game in the Pioneer Bowl at Wichita Falls, Texas. In an A. B.C. nationally televised game, the Minutemen battled it out with Florida A M. The lead changed six times at the hands of a 35 m.p.h. wind in what was unanimously labeled the most exciting col- lege football game of the year. When it was all over, UMass was still fighting back as Chris Kurtz dove into the end zone at the final bell. Florida A M had a nation- al championship in its grasp, 35-28, but UMass had touched on an impossible dream. Not to be forgotten was the outstanding job done by the specialty team throughout the year, led by senior Bob Pinto. The Minutemen dominated the Yankee Conference All Star team with 17 mem- bers and had one ail-American player in senior guard Bruce Kimball, who signed with the Pittsburg Steelers. Three other players also signed with pro-teams: Mike McGloughlin, Joe McGloughlin and Den- nis Dent. The season closed with an awards ban- quet. Pro quarterback Gregg Landry sum med it up best when he said " the 1978 Minutemen football team brought a spe- cial pride to the University and the State of Massachusetts, one that will be cher- ished forever.
