Frank Broyles led his Arkansas Razorbacks into battle against his former coach, not only as a player but also as an assistant, Bobby Dodd in the 1960 classic. However, The story of the game was the showing of Arkansas’ coveted All-American, Jim Mooty. Only a year prior, the running back was disabled by a serious head injury that almost put his career in jeopardy. Only a year later, Mooty ran 19 yards for a score that would go on to be the decisive touchdown in a 14-7 Arkansas victory. The pupil had taken down his mentor, as Frank Broyles ended Bobby Dodd’s win streak of 8 consecutive bowl games.

The shoe-in crowd favorite Florida Gators returned to Jacksonville once again, this time to faced the redemption-seeking Baylor Bears. The Bears’ passing attack would be the best that the Gators faced all year, in a game that came down to the final minute. Baylor turned the ball over twice in the first half which led to two Gator scores. Baylor’s halfback Ronnie Bull scored a controversial touchdown with 61 seconds left that sent 50,000 fans to the edge of their seats. The Bears failed on a two-point conversion attempt, sending the crowd into a frenzy, and the Gators back to Gainesville with a 13-12 victory.

Flu-stricken Galen Hall threw for 175 yards and 3 touchdowns to lead the Nittany Lions to a stunning victory in the Gator Bowl. Penn State, who was originally the second choice for the game, yet still handed Dodd-led Georgia Tech its largest loss of the season. No team had managed to score more than 10 points on the Jackets until Penn State put up 30 in the Jacksonville classic. Galen Hall became the first player in Gator Bowl history to throw for multiple touchdowns in a game. Tech’s halfback Joe Auer ran for two scores, including a record 68-yard touchdown, but it was not enough. The Engineers fell victim to a 30-15 licking at the hands of Penn State.

Penn State returned again in 1962 with all the confidence in the world following their Gator Bowl upset of Georgia Tech and 9-1 season. Critics questioned whether the sub-par Gators even deserved to be on the same field as the Nittany Lions. Yet, it did not take long for the boys of Gainesville to silence those critics. Florida’s offense produced 101 yards more than their counterpart and forced three fumbles to help them to a 17-7 victory over the heavily favored defending Gator Bowl champions.

Prior to gametime North Carolina was favored by a mere 1 ½ points. Their Air Force opponents had handed losses to both Orange Bowl-bound Nebraska and Rose Bowl-bound Washington, earlier in the season. The 8-2 Tar Heels were not discouraged by that drastic miscalculation and caught fire to score in every single quarter. North Carolina’s stellar defense shut down the Falcons not allowing them to put any points on the scoreboard. Carolina fullback, Ken Willard, racked up 94 yards of offense and led the Heels to a 35-0 domination of Air Force, the largest margin of victory in Gator Bowl history. The 1963 Gator Bowl was unfortunately overshadowed by the Roosevelt Hotel Fire, which claimed 21 lives the morning following the game.

The 20-year anniversary of the Gator Bowl was nothing short of record-breaking. The Florida State Seminoles, affectionately known then as the “other” Florida team, made their first ever appearance in the Jacksonville game. The Oklahoma Sooners returned for a second time, this time under head coach Gomer Jones. The Sooners were handicapped by the loss of four players who were ruled ineligible after committing to professional contracts. The Noles showed no mercy on the crippled Oklahomans. Seminole quarterback Steve Tensi threw for 303 yards and five touchdowns, four of those to receiver Fred Biletnikoff. Tensi and Biletnikoff both set still-standing records for touchdowns passes and touchdown catches. The Sooners put up a valiant fight squeezing out 19 points against the Seminoles infamous front line. The teams combined for a record 55 combined points. Florida State proved themselves nationally in a 36-19 victory.

The previous year’s Gator Bowl would certainly be a hard one to follow up regardless of the matchup. However, returning visitors Georgia Tech and Texas Tech put on an offensive display of their own. The Yellow Jackets pounded the ball on the ground, running a Gator Bowl record 79 times for 27 first downs. Donny Anderson combated the Tech attack by running for 85 yards and receiving for 138 and a touchdown. Anderson’s efforts would simply be overmatched as Lenny Snow ran for 136 yards and a touchdown, leading the Jackets to a 31-21 victory.

Syracuse’s Floyd Little and Larry Csonka would establish themselves as one of the most dangerous duos in Gator Bowl history. Floyd Little ran for a record 218 yards, and Csonka added on 114 of his own. However, The Orangemen were outmatched by the Tennessee duo of quarterback, Dewey Warren, and his receiver, Austin Denney. Kicker Gary Wright also added a Gator Bowl record two field goals to cushion Tennessee with a comfortable 18-0 halftime lead. Little and Csonka both found their way to the endzone in the second-half but the Volunteers held on to a 18-12 victory. The matchup was one that saw 9 All-Americans from the two teams combined.

Penn State looked to put the 1967 Gator Bowl away early, and by the looks of the first half were succeeding in doing that. Nittany Lion quarterback threw for two first half touchdowns and added a field goal to help Penn State take a comfortable 17-0 lead into halftime. The Seminoles, however, would not bow down. Florida State quarterback Kim Hammond simply took over in the second half. Hammond completed 37 passes for 362 yards, both records that eclipsed former FSU quarterback Steve Tensi. Hammond scored twice: once on the ground and once through the air. 14 of his completions were to his favorite target, Ron Sellers, who caught for 145 yards. His 14 catches surpassed former Nole Fred Biletnikoff, for a Gator Bowl record. The Seminoles stormed back, and nailed a field goal with 15 seconds left to end the game in a 17-17 tie.

Hall of Fame Head Coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant returned for his second Gator Bowl appearance, this time at the helm of the Alabama Crimson Tide. The heavily favored Tide were manhandled by the Missouri Tigers for a majority of the game. The Tigers ran for 402 total yards. The Tide ran the ball 29 times and were held to negative 45 yards, partially helped by 12 Missouri sacks. Missouri quarterback Terry McMillian ran for three touchdowns, Greg Cook added 179 yards and a touchdown of his own, as Missouri embarrassed The Tide, handing Bear Bryant the worst loss of his storied Alabama career.

The 1969 Gator Bowl had more subplots and relationships than a soap opera. It was well-known that this would be Florida coach Ray Graves’ last game under the helm of the Gators. However, Tennessee Head Coach Doug Dickey was the lead candidate to replace Graves. Dickey’s left hand man was Jimmy Dunn, the Florida quarterback who had led the Gators in the Jacksonville game 11 years prior. Florida’s linebacker Mike Kelley became the second defensive player to win the Burkhalter Trophy. Kelley had an interception, a fumble recovery, and scored on a blocked punt. The Vols produced 137 more total yards, and 8 more first downs but were outlasted by the Gators in a nail biting 14-13 defeat. Tennessee Coach Doug Dickey succeeded Ray Graves following the game.
