LSU was invited to the Sugar Bowl for the third consecutive season. The Broncos were undefeated on the season and as such were invited to the Sugar Bowl once again.[1]

Game summary

LSU failed to capitalize despite having less turnovers, more first downs, and more yards than the Broncos. At one point, Pinky Rohm tried to score from the Bronco 3, but he was stopped by Al Wolff as the Broncos went to work on a drive, culminating with a Jim Coughlan touchdown catch from Bruno Pellegrini. LSU kept trying to get on the scoreboard, but they kept turning it over on downs and were stopped at Santa Clara's 23 on the final play. [2]


LSU would have to wait until 1944 to gain their first bowl win. Santa Clara's next and ultimately last bowl game appearance would be in 1950.
