THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS
Coach Phil Dickens of
was emphatic, not grammatic, after his halfback, Jim Crawford, romped for two touchdowns—one of them a 71-yard canter—to beat
27-0. "If that boy ain't All-America," roared Dickens, "they ain't never been one." His exuberance was understandable. Crawford's pace-setting performance avenged a year-old defeat by Denver which cost Wyoming a tie for the 1955 Skyline Conference title. It also put the Cowboys on an even footing with Utah's big team in the 1956 Skyline championship battle. The wind-up was in calm contrast to last year's finish, when teams and fans slugged it out under the goal posts for 20 minutes after the game.

New Mex. 27, Utah St. 19
Idaho St. 19, San Diego Navy 12
