This interview is part of a series about three football games known as the Hairy Bacon Bowl, which occurred during the early 1970s. Participants included University of Colorado students who identified with hippie culture and/or anti-war sentiment, versus campus and Boulder police officers. The games were seen as a way to address tensions between the two groups. David Emigh, who was a student at CU at the time, describes attending the second of the football games as a spectator and also participating in an anti-war march that closed down a roadway.
