This is one of the biggest upsets in school history. The Salukis, who were 0-5, upset the Hurricane, who were ranked No. 8 in the Litkenhous ranking. Then-Southern Illinoisan sports writer Lon Eubanks termed the come-from-behind win a "miracle win." Saluki Hall of Fame LB Carl Mauck's fourth quarter interception and 24-yard return to the Tulsa 10 yard line set up Galloway's game-winning field goal. Tulsa came into the game ranked in the Top 10 nationally in five offensive categories. The Salukis held the Hurricane to 105 yards rushing and 159 yards passing. A then-record homecoming crowd of 15,500 responded by tearing down the goalposts. It was one of only three games SIU won in 1967.
SIU LB Carl Mauck and Coach Dick Towers recalled the game in July 2009 interviews.
