September 5 in San Antonio history…

The NFL’s New York Bulldogs, with former UT quarterback Bobby Layne, and Los Angeles Rams play in Alamo Stadium in front of 18,452 fans.  The Rams win, 21-14.

The NFL’s newest franchise – the Dallas Texans, featuring swift running back Buddy Young (right), play the Washington Redskins in Alamo Stadium.  The Texans, a renamed and a relocated franchise formerly known as the New York Yanks, defeat Sammy Baugh’s Redskins, 27-14, but fold at the end of the season.  For 1953, the NFL relocates the team to Baltimore and they are renamed the Colts.

The mercury reaches 111 degrees – the hottest day in San Antonio history.
