Tulsa Gains Revenge On Tech
Quarterback Frank Broyles’ Orange Bowl-record 304-yard passing attack was not enough for Georgia Tech as Tulsa avenged a 20-18 loss in the 1944 Sugar Bowl with a 26-12 win over the Yellow Jackets.
 
Tulsa jumped out to a 20-0 lead behind a pair of Ed Shedlosky touchdowns. On Tulsa's first play of the third quarter, the Hurricane used some razzle-dazzle as Perry Moss threw to Nip Goodnight at the 35-yard line, who then lateraled to Barney White, who sped straight down the north sideline for six points, making the score 20-0.
 
Tech came back with six points of its own in the third quarter. Tulsa's Camp Wilson quickly quieted the crowd, taking the Tech kickoff on the 10-yard line and racing 90 yards for a 26-6 Tulsa lead. Georgia Tech added six points in the final quarter to pull within 14 points of the victorious Hurricane.
