Evans, member of Buffalo's 1958 Tangerine Bowl team, dies

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Willie Evans, the star black halfback of Buffalo's 1958 team that balked at competing in the Tangerine Bowl because of a rule barring integrated football games, has died. He was 79.

The school announced Evans died in Buffalo on Wednesday after a brief illness.

Evans grew up in Buffalo and was a member of UB's 1958 team that went 8-1 and won the Lambert Cup, awarded to the nation's top small school in the East. Buffalo accepted a berth to play in the Tangerine Bowl before being informed the school district which operated the host stadium in Orlando, Florida, barred integrated games.
