January 1, 1948 – Orange Bowl Stadium
Jackets Hold Off Jayhawks
Georgia Tech held off a furious late rally from Kansas that included a goal line fumble in the game's final seconds to defeat the Jayhawks by a 20-14 score.
The Jayhawks were a two-touchdown underdog to Bobby Dodd's powerful Yellow Jackets, but the game was tied at 7-7 heading into halftime.
Tech then roared to two third-quarter touchdowns to take a 20-7 lead. Kansas' Ray Evans scored his second touchdown of the game to cut the lead to 20-14 in the fourth quarter. Kansas drove to the Tech 1-yard line with 37 seconds left before Lynn McNutt fumbled on a quarterback sneak and Tech's Rollo Phillips recovered to seal the victory.
