Newsreel footage from the 1945 Cotton Bowl Classic, featuring a match-up between Oklahoma A&M and Texas Christian.
Oklahoma A&M sophomore tailback whiz Bob Fenimore lived up to his All-America billings as the Cowboys bounced SWC champion TCU, 34-0, establishing the third-largest margin of victory in Cotton Bowl history. Fenimore, inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame in 2007, scored on runs of one and seven yards and completed 6-of-12 passes for 137 yards.
Fullback Jim Spavital powered his way for 119 yards, including a 52 yard scoring bolt.
Meanwhile, the Poke defense smothered TCU, not allowing it past midfield until the second half.
Coach Jim Lookabaugh's muscular single-wing offense harvested 494 yards of total offense, while TCU could manage only 105. In the fourth period, A&M's reserves took over with Joe Thomas and Mack Creager adding touchdowns on short plunges.
