The first game of Coach Bob Woodruff’s final season was a 30-0 road shutout of Tulane.
Jack Jones hit Doug Partin with an 18-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but the Green Wave kept it close until UF poured in 23 fourth-quarter points.
Woodruff started the season as the winningest coach in UF history with 47 career victories over his first nine seasons.
Interesting nugget: When Woodruff left Baylor for Florida in in 1949, he signed a seven-year, $17,000 contract as head coach and athletic director. That was $5,000 more than the school was paying university president J. Hillis Miller.
