September 22, 1973 - Mike Heintzelman throws two touchdown passes and Dave Oswald runs for a pair of scores as Northwestern holds off Cardinal Brennan for a 28-23 victory. Oswald gives the Tigers, coached by Joe Czutno, the lead with two first-half scores. Oswald, who breaks his hand after a successful two-point conversion and is forced to sit out the rest of the game, reaches the end zone on runs of 30 and 14 yards. Heintzelman connects with Mike Weber on a 57-yard tally before tossing a 29-yard TD pass to Mark Bricker in the fourth quarter for the go-ahead and eventual winning score.
