Dismal Day for Carolina in 1950 Cotton Bowl


When UNC Head Football Coach Carl Snavely arrived at his 215 Woollen Gym office on Wednesday, November 23, 1949, a New Year’s bowl game was not on his radar. After all, Carolina had lost 3 games during the season and two of those losses were decisive: Notre Dame 42 to 6 in Yankee Stadium and Tennessee 35 to 6 in Kenan Stadium. Coach was concentrating on the upcoming game with Virginia three days away. Then, the phone rang and everything changed. (A View to Hugh)
