Duke won the ACC, and would win it again the next two years. The Blue Devils had 4 first team-all conference players.
In a game full of stars such as Lance Alworth of Arkansas and Don Altman and Tee Moorman of Duke, Dave Unser came up biggest. His block of a Mickey Cissel PAT gave the game to Duke.
Alworth provided a memorable play when he snagged a high snap on a punt. Under pressure from Duke defenders, he then rolled right and sprinted upfield. While running he punted the ball deep, which went out at the Duke 2. Two plays later he returned a Duke punt for a touchdown. The extra point, however, was blocked by Dave Unser, giving the Hogs only a 6-0 lead.
In the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils hooked together five passes from Altman to Moorman in one drive that culminated in a tying TD and go ahead extra point.
