All About Rushing: Super Bowl VIII

Whether or not the world was ready for Super Bowl VIII, it came on January 13, 1974. The game was played between the Minnesota Vikings and the Miami Dolphins. Of course, the Miami Dolphins took home the game with a winning score of 24-7. The game took place in Houston, Texas at Rice Stadium. This was the first Super Bowl to not be held in New Orleans, Miami, or Los Angeles.

If you haven’t noticed yet, the Miami Dolphins really seemed to like the Super Bowl at this point. In fact, this was the 3rd Super Bowl the Dolphins attended in the past 3 years. Super Bowl VIII was all about the Dolphins, as you can see from the final score. Larry Csonka was also the first running back to be named the MVP of the Super Bowl. All thanks to his 145 rushing yards and 33 carries, both which went down in Super Bowl history.

Pat Summerall was again an announcer at the Super Bowl, along with Ray Scott and Bart Starr. The cost of a 30 second commercial was also up $103,000. And the half time show got a real taste of Texas when the The Westchester Wranglerettes performed along with The University of Texas Longhorn Band.
