The game was' ons of the most Inter

the old and new football, was kaleido

thrills. Syracuse's double passes and a

manner that delighted the spectators..

field without a bagful of tricks. Rut

ter. Before the game had 'ended Rutgers
t-ad tried lateral passes, onslde kicks,
criss crosses and runa from every con
ceivable kind .of formation.
Many of Rutgers plays were started
from a backfleld formation In -which the
fullback faced the line, and the. two
halves faced each other. In. want of an
