Georgia 40
Texas Christian 26

January 1, 1942 – Orange Bowl Stadium
Bulldog Star Sinks TCU
Georgia All-American quarterback Frankie Sinkwich, playing with an oversized chin mask to protect a broken jaw, put on an offensive display still considered by many as the greatest in any bowl game as he led his Bulldogs to a 40-26 win over TCU.
Sinkwich, a future Heisman Trophy winner and Orange Bowl Hall-of-Fame member, passed for touchdowns of 61, 60 and 15 yards and raced 43 yards on a quarterback draw for another score. He completed nine-of-13 passes for 243 yards and chalked up 355 yards of total offense, an Orange Bowl record that still stands.
Georgia led at halftime 33-7 and held a 40-7 lead through the third quarter before Texas Christian mounted a late three-touchdown effort.
