Three years after reaching the Glass Bowl, New Hampshire churned out another Yankee Conference championship team, going 8-0 overall and 4-0 in league play. The coach was Clarence A. "Chief" Boston, who compiled a 60-57-10 record and four YC titles in Durham from 1949-64. You can read a little more about him here.
|The undefated 1950 UNH Wildcats, in their road whites.|
All pictures here are from the 1951 Granite yearbook.
This uniform was worn from 1949-54, with blue helmets used occasionally in '49 and plastic shells taking over by '51, which makes the 1950 uniform a sorta-kinda one-year style. The home shirts here don't look too different from what the Cats were wearing in 1965.

|Dick Dewing ran for 893 yards in 1950, a phenomenal total for that time period.|
He was rewarded with an appearance in the 1951 Topps Magic set, a set of
college football stars and one of the gum giant's first sports card offerings.
Dewing had a long career in the military, was part of the UNH chain gang
and helped found the team that fires the cannon after every Wildcat touchdown.
This uniform bears not even a passing semblance to what the '50 Cats actually wore.
|Geez, that water tower was around even then?|
|I dunno ... for some reason, I found this drawing from the '51 Granite|
funny as hell, so I thought I'd share it here.
