The defense-minded Tigers gave Charles McClendon a victory over previously undefeated and fourth-ranked Texas in Coach Mac's first bowl appearance as LSU's head coach. Quarterback Lynn Amedee was named the game's outstanding player as he kicked field goals of 23 and 37 yards, and recovered a fumble that setup LSU's only touchdown. With LSU leading 3-0 in the third quarter, Jimmy Field scored the only touchdown of the game on a 22-yard run in the third quarter, stretching the Tigers lead to 10-0. Tiger All-Americans Fred Miller and Jerry Stovall starred on defense as LSU forced three turnovers and held the Longhorns to just 172 total yards.
 
Erected by LSU, Bowl Victory recognized by Paul and Shannon Geiger.
