It’s been proven that processioning the President’s Office files of Curley Byrd can be full of surprises. For example, yesterday we came across these nearly pristine 1954 Orange Bowl tickets in a folder titled “Orange Bowl Ticket Requests For Game on January 1, 1954.” It was exciting to see that these tickets were saved, but the fact that they were kept in such great condition was a huge bonus.
The 1954 Orange Bowl game was played against Oklahoma on New Year’s day. The Terps ended up losing the game by the score of 7-0. Luckily though, the game was played after Maryland finished their regular season undefeated and had already been crowned national champions in 1953.
