1942 Sugar Bowl Ticket Stub - Fordham 2 Missouri 0 - Historic Game
Ticket is in VGEX condition.
The 1942 edition to the Sugar Bowl featured the Missouri Tigers and the Fordham Rams. Those who watched the game were concerned by the attack on Pearl Harbor, which had occurred less than four weeks previously. Despite the entry of the United States into WWII the bowl game was played on schedule. New Year's Day
1942, saw a cold, driving rainstorm in New Orleans. During the first
quarter, a blocked Tigers punt, turned back by Fordham tackle Alex
Santilli, led to a two-point safety being scored by defensive end Stanley Ritinski. As the rain continued and no further points were scored, the final
tally was Fordham 2, Missouri 0, which is the lowest possible combined
point total for an untied American football game and stands as a bowl game record for an untied game (there have been four 0–0 ties). Fordham had won the game without completing a single pass their total game yardage was 137 yards, all of it on the ground.
