All-American and Saluki Hall of Fame DB Terry Taylor contributed in many ways to the Salukis' 1983 I-AA National Championship. But perhaps his most spectacular contribution came in this game. Taylor, who blocked either a field goal or a punt in three of the first four games in the 1983 season, blocked Dave Strauch's 20-yard field goal attempt to tie with 19 seconds remaining in the game. Ron Miller's tie breaking 28-yard field goal with 2:48 remaining in the third quarter proved to be the game winner. It was one of only three Saluki games decided by seven or less points that year, as the Salukis posted a 13-1 record and the school's only national football title.
