Carolina rushed for a record eight TDs in the game. George Rogers ran for 108 yards and two TDs in the first half, but with a 38-0 lead at halftime, didn’t return for the second half.
Unfortunately, this rout came at the expense of Shockers coach Willie Jeffries.
Jeffries, a Union native, played and coached at S.C. State. He was the first African-American head coach in Division 1A football.
