Picture of the 1964 College Bowl team.

Lead by coach Myron “Doc” Berry, Tech sent this team to television’s College Bowl in 1964. The men practiced against a faculty team before leaving town, and they lost a “close match to Ohio Wesleyan” in the event, according to the Keweenawan. They were also greeted by a crowd at the airport when they returned.
