FOOTBALL AT FENWAY  
Harry Agganis tosses four TD passes
against Scranton

October 29, 1949 ... B.U.'s undefeated football team shut the lights off Scranton at Fenway Park in a 46-6 rout.  The Agganis Assassins bettered their nation leading 425-yards per game offensive average, with 517 total yards.  Agganis tossed four touchdown passes for 14 TD tosses in five games, moving in on the collegiate record of 22.  He threw the ball 25 times for 14 completions and 218 passing yards, as well as running the ball himself numerous times as well as doing the kicking twice on kickoffs.  George Sulima is a superb pass receiver and complimented Agganis' great passing ability.  Sulima caught two passes for touchdowns and set up a third.

B.U. drove 73 yards for its first score and the second one came via a recovered fumble by Lou Beardell to set up an Agganis to Sulima touchdown reception.  Agganis started the third march himself, intercepting a pass at his own 48, and hitting Sulima with a pass at the Scranton 35 who took it in for the score.  After the half, Johnny Kastan picked off a pass and ran 40 yards for the fourth B.U. score.  A pass from Agganis to Tom Oates brought the fifth touchdown, climaxing a 55 yard drive.  Billy Pavlikowski set up the sixth touchdown by picking off another Scranton pass at the visitor's 45-yd line, with an Agganis-Oates combination for the payoff.  Johnny Toner steered the 68-yard journey that netted the final score, completing two passes, with Red Czarmota taking in through for the TD.  Coach Donnelli played Agganis for more than 50 minutes, coming out in the third quarter, but going back in the next three times B.U. had the ball.
