Sugar Bowl Game, January 1, 1942. Toss of coin before
The 1942 Sugar Bowl featured Fordham and Missouri and was played in persistent rain
before 73,000 fans to a score of 2 to 0, with Fordham the victor. By the end of the game, the Times-Picayune reported, "the Sugar Bowl was converted into a soggy syrup." The game had two heroes --
Fordham's Alex Santilli, who blocked a Missouri kick and set up a safety for the game's only score, and
Missouri's Harry Ice, who ran for 112 yards, but still couldn't win against the mud.
