    Wow, great photo.

    Bobby Layne (22) and Tom Landry (24) in the back?

    Also, there’s a B and a U painted on the scoreboard in the background. Maybe some Baylor shenanigans there.

    They're in white. Maybe the photo was taken in Waco.

    It has "Operated by The University Co-Op" across the top with scores being Texas and Visitor while the BU is spray painted.

    Great pic! Playing with only 20 players in this Texas heat took some kind of special guts. Makes the roster rotations today seem soft. :hookem:

    Clearly you are correct. I missed all of those clues.

    I think that image is from 1947, Layne was a senior in 47 and Landry a Jr.
