1938 Sugar Bowl

Broncos Make It Two Straight Over Toothless Tigers


 

Santa Clara hasn't seen big time football since the school dropped the sport after the 1952 season, but up through the 1949 season, the Broncos had innumerable moments of glory. Their unbeaten 1937 entry, tied for ninth nationally with Notre Dame, was but one prime example, and for the second straight year the Californians capped their season with a Sugar Bowl win over the home state LSU Tigers. That was the ghost of Huey Long that you could hear spinning in his grave.
