These photos (click to enlarge) were taken at the Auburn-Kentucky game played on February 11, 1974. Auburn hadn’t beaten Kentucky since 1968.
The Tigers kept the No. 1 ranked Wildcats from scoring for the first four and half minutes, jumped out to a 14-0 start, and eventually won the game in overtime, 99-97.
Robert Osberry sank the winning shot with 16 seconds left.
It was the first time we beat Kentucky in Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.

And had some healthy cheerleaders, too.
Total babes. Even if they’re almost 60 now.
Hey, I was in school then….indeed the cheerleaders were babes. It’s something about those shoes they wore back in the day that was just “hot.”
Guess what Osberries nickname was? “Wizard of Oz” maybe?

Why are the students wearing plaid? Are they making fun of Wimp Sanderson?
Great googly moogly, that one cheerleader is sorta reminiscent of Winnie Cooper…

Nah ~ it’s the sox, not the shoes that makes a cheerleader look sexy.
