Alumni of the 1968 Boardwalk Bowl

It has been more than forty years since that cold December Saturday when IUP met the University of Delaware in Atlantic City’s Convention Hall for IUP’s first and only indoor football game. In the game’s last fifteen seconds, heavily favored Delaware pulled out a win. Alumni of the 1968 Boardwalk Bowl team came to the IUP campus in the fall for a reunion.
