In the third quarter, Navy quarterback George Welsh threw a 16 yard touchdown pass to halfback Jack Weaver, as Navy took command with a 14-0 lead. Gattuso scored on a 1 yard touchdown run, his second of the game, as Navy built a 21-0 lead. With no more scoring, Navy held on to win.

Because he had two rushing touchdowns, Joe Gattuso was named Sugar Bowl MVP.
