The 1942 Orange Bowl matched the Georgia Bulldogs and the TCU Horned Frogs.[1]

Game summary[edit]

Frank Sinkwich was the highlight of the game in a Georgia beatdown of TCU. Sinkwich had three touchdown passes and one rushing touchdown for a combined total of 355 yards (rushing and passing), a record that stands to this day, overshadowing the game's 10 turnovers. Georgia had a 40-14 lead into the fourth quarter before TCU scored twice to narrow the lead, but Georgia ultimately won in the end, their first bowl win in their first bowl game.
