Oklahoma 17 at Chicago 14


1984 Week 4 - Saturday, March 17, 1984
Oklahoma Outlaws(2-1) at Chicago Blitz(0-3)(-5.5)
Attendance: 6,206

CHICAGO (AP) - Efren Herrera kicked a 34-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining Saturday to lead the Oklahoma Outlaws to a 17-14 victory over the winless Chicago Blitz.

Herrera's winning kick in a driving snowstorm improved the Outlaws's record to 3-1 while Chicago fell to 0-4.

Snow blanketed the field and kept visibility, particularly in the second half, for the crowd of 8,206.

Herrera's winning kick was the result of an interception by Oklahoma's Barry Copeland, who picked off a pass by Chicago's Vince Evans with 1:53 remaining. The Outlaws then drove from their own 46-yard-line to Chicago's 17, setting up Herrera's game-winner.

Despite the conditions, Oklahoma quarterback Doug Williams completed 18-of-40 pass attempts for 240 yards and two touchdowns.

Evans completed 10-of-28 passes for 145 yards, with two interceptions and one touchdown, with wide receiver Marcus Anderson accumulating 123 yards in six receptions.
