Inscription.  
Steve Van Buren accounted for all 19 of LSU's points as the Tigers won their rematch with Texas A&M, 19-14, in the Orange Bowl in Miami. Despite a 5-3 record, the war-time Tigers were still invited to the Orange Bowl, which was one of only five bowl games at the time. Earlier in the season, Texas A&M beat LSU, 28-13. However this time, Van Buren was too much for the Aggies to overcome. Van Buren gave the Tigers a 6-o lead in the first quarter on an 11-yard run and then stretched the advantage to 12-0 on a 24-yard TD pass to Burt Goode. LSU led 12-7 at halftime. Three plays into the third quarter, Van Buren broke loose on a 63-yard TD pushing the LSU advantage to 19-7. The Aggies pulled to within 19-14 midway through the third quarter but that was as close as Texas A&M would get as LSU won its first bowl game in five tries under head coach Bernie Moore. LSU finished the year with a 6-3 mark.
