Newsom threw three touchdown passes to help the Pirates overcome a 17-0 deficit and take a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter.

At the time, she had no way of knowing that she would, in another sport, eclipse many of the achievements earned by one of college football's most influential coaches, despite coaching 23 fewer seasons than Stagg. Stagg coached 59 seasons at the University of Chicago, Pacific and Springfield, and was in on many of the game's innovations, including being a notable contributor to the development of the forward pass.
