Led by Hall of Famer Charlie (Choo-Choo) Justice, the North Carolina Tar Heels were coming off a one loss season and were primed for the showdown. But the Bulldogs had more than a match for them in the person of their own Hall of Famer, halfback Charlie Trippi. When the dust had settled, the Jawja boys had capped a perfect season with a thrilling 20-10 triumph that was only clinched in the closing minutes on a Trippi touchdown pass to end Dan Edwards.
