UNIVERSAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE - The league was announced on October 5, 1973, when sports agents Tony Rizzano and Louis S. Goldman said their UFL would draw teams from the United States, Mexico and Canada and games would be played with new rules, including several from the CFL. The pair revealed plans for the new league, just two days after plans were unveiled for the World Football League. Rizzano said the UFL, to be composed of 10 teams, hoped to begin playing in 1974. The prospective franchise owners in league cities — New York, Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle, Tampa, Memphis, Anaheim, Birmingham, Mexico City and Toronto — would be charged $3 million in cash for their franchises. In January 1974, Razzano announced the UFL would hold off until the spring of 1975 to begin play due to the WFL, but nothing more was ever heard.

SUPER BOWL 8 (January 13, 1974 at Houston)
MIAMI DOLPHINS (14-2) 24, MINNESOTA VIKINGS (14-2) 7 - The defending NFL champion Dolphins, representing the AFC for the third straight year, scored the first two times they had possession on marches of 62 and 56 yards while the Miami defense limited the Vikings to only seven plays in the first period. Larry Csonka climaxed the initial 10-play drive with a 5-yard touchdown bolt through right guard after 5:27 had elapsed. Four plays later, Miami began another 10-play scoring drive, which ended with Jim Kiick bursting one yard through the middle for another touchdown after 13:38 of the period. Garo Yepremian added a 28-yard field goal midway in the second period for a 17-0 Miami lead. Minnesota then drove from its 20 to a second-and-2 situation on the Miami seven yard line with 1:18 left in the half. But on two plays, Miami limited Oscar Reed to 1 yard. On fourth-and-1 from the 6, Reed went over right tackle, but Dolphins middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti jarred the ball loose and Jake Scott recovered for Miami to halt the Minnesota threat. The Vikings were unable to muster enough offense in the second half to threaten the Dolphins. Csonka rushed 33 times for a Super Bowl-record 145 yards. Bob Griese of Miami completed 6 of 7 passes for 73 yards.
