|The Mighty Gaels---Two Points From Perfection|
View List Of Available Posters
The Olympic Club in San Francisco is the oldest athletic club in the United States, and from 1891 through 1930 it would schedule football games against California juggernauts such as Stanford and Cal. But they were no match for St. Mary's, which missed a perfect season only by a one point loss to Cal. UCLA, Fordham, and Oregon were among the Gaels' victims, and the next year they began by handing Southern Cal its only loss of the season, and ending by snapping Southern Methodist's nine game winning streak. It was a great run.
