El Paso, TX - Mississippi Southern made its first bowl appearance here in El Paso, Texas, but it would be the College of Pacific who would leave Texas as the winner, 26-7. Pacific scored the first points of the game and never looked back. Trailing 13-0 at the half, MSC received the kickoff and then fumbled the ball on the very next play, resulting in a Tiger touchdwon. Coach Pie Vann's squad, in very uncustomary fashion, would proceed to lose four fumbles on the day. Mississippi Southern's only score came on a 73-yard march with little time remaining. Hugh Pepper scored on a two-yard run, and Peanuts Davenport kicked the extra point. Newspaper reports from the day after the game indicated that defensive tackle J.T. Shepard was the defensive standout for the Southerners. He blocked a punt, recovered it, as well as making several key tackles.
