Super Bowl IX: Pittsburgh 16-6 Minnesota

AFC champion Pittsburgh, in its initial Super Bowl appearance, and NFC champion Minnesota, making a third bid for its first Super Bowl title, struggle through a first half in which the only score is produced by the Steelers’ defense when Dwight White downs Vikings’ quarterback Fran Tarkenton in the end zone for a safety 7:49 into the second period. Pittsburgh’s defense permits Minnesota only 119 yards total offense, including a Super Bowl low of 17 rushing yards. The Steelers, meanwhile, gain 333 yards, including Harris’s record 158 yards on 34 carries.
