Billy Cannon's 9-yard TD pass to Mickey Mangham in the third quarter was the only scoring of the game as the top-ranked Tigers completed the first undefeated, untied season at LSU in 50 years with the 7-0 win over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. The win was LSU's first in five tries in the Sugar Bowl, which was celebrating the 25th anniversary of the game. LSU went into the contest having already been declared the 1958 national champion when the final polls were released in early December. Still LSU was determined to finish the season undefeated with only ACC Champion Clemson standing in its way. LSU's defense held Clemson to 191 yards of offense and forced a pair of turnovers in the contest as the Tigers finished with an 11-0 overall mark under head coach Paul Dietzel.
