And their great nil-American halfback, Charley Trippi, panic through with equally untarnished laurels, although he by j ln means outclassed the Tarheels' Charley Justice. Promoters of (he game, were gleeful that the Sugar Bowl provided the most exciting of the towl conlesLs, as underdou North Carolina twice took the lead and Georgia twice roared from behind. The only man who didn't live up to rosy pre-game hopes was the weatherman, who came up with a cold wave that kept .the 73,000 •spec-tutors shivering — 'when they j weren't o n their feet screaming al the action, which included a well- placed fist here and there. North Carolina scored in the .'ceond period on a 30-yard sustain^ cd drive after Intercepting a Trip- Ill pass. Walt Pupa went -over from Ihe (cm- and Bob Co x converted. In the third period Trippi -rclurn- , ea the compliment—he intercept- I cd a Pupa pass, laleraled to Joe Tereshinski, who tolled the ball to Dick McPhee, who run to:Ihe Tarheel 14.

Cox then kicked a field goal after an Inspired North Carolina drive, and the Tarheels led, 10 to 7. Georgia was unabashed, Trippi faded lo liU 34, passed lon s | 0 Dan Edwards, who ran 40 yards to score. The Bulldogs made certain wllh a tcuchdo-.ui in the last quarter lopping an 80-yard drive.
