SIU ended a 10-game winless streak versus Western Illinois with an Illinois Intercollegiate Athletic Conference season-opening win. The Salukis scored on the game's final play to draw within one point of the Leathernecks. Southern then won the game when it converted the subsequent two-point conversion attempt. Saluki Hall of Fame QB and Centralia-native Bill Norwood passed 67 yards to Lane "Night Train" Jenkins to bring the Salukis within one point, 31-30, as the game clock expired. Jenkins then rushed for the game-winning two-point conversion. It was the only one of four extra point attempts SIU converted during the game. In his book "Saluki Sports History," long time SIU Sports Information Director Fred Huff quoted then-SIU Athletics Director Don Boydston saying it was the most exciting football game he saw in his 15 years as SIU's athletics director.


SIU Hall of Fame QB Bill Norwood recalled the game in a July 2009 interview.
