The winner of the Orange Bowl for the 1943 football season was LSU over Texas A.M. 19-13 or something close to that. It was a strange game because both teams started record number of freshman that year. Because, all the seniors and juniors had been drafted into the Armed Services. The game was played on Jan 1st, 1944. And, in fact my Grandfather played on that team...and promptly joined the Marines and went to war. Luckily, he was able to come back and led a long and wonderful like. Cheers - Mike mikeangelo1@yahoo.com
