Briscoe, Marlin, 1945-

Description

The prospectus from the 1967 OU football media guide foretells "its biggest year in history under great pressure." Despite the dismal 1966 season, the prospectus is optimistic about 1967, largely due Marlin Briscoe's return. "Brightness on the horizon is the return to action of two-time ALL-CIC quarterback Marlin Briscoe, who missed last season with a neck injury. The scrambling field general set nine OU records during an 8-2 season in 1965. Needless to say, his absence last fall was chiefly responsible for the collapse which dulled what might have been Omaha's finest hour. The little quarterback is going to be under intense pressure week after week from opponents who will mark him as the main way to stop the varied Indian attack that netted 381 yards per game in 1965 under Briscoe's direction."
