The rumor after the game was that halfback Art Best got into an argument with a black player that caused a near riot in the locker room.

Remember 1974 was the year Browner, Willie Fry, and Al Hunter did not play because of the rape allegations before the season. Supposedly the suspension of the black players contributed to the dissension that "blew up" at half time.

I have no idea as to the accuracy of this rumor, but Allen Sack, who played for ND in 1966 (and is now a college prof teaching sociology), does refer to the incident in a book he wrote about college football.
