There were a few bright
spots in the game for the
Cougars as they were simply
outmanned and outclassed at
almost every position. It is
difficult for a school so new to

A ruling by a Federal
Power Commission judge,
ordering a $13.5 million
rollback in a $33.5 million rate

those customers.
The decision not only

provision requiring the cus

of their summertime peak
