MIAMI--Homer Norton's fourth and last bowl team for A&M, a freshman and sophomore-laden team known as the "Kiddie Corps", ended a 7-2-1 season with a close loss as Louisiana State edged the Aggies.

Tiger halfback Steve Van Buren rushed for 172 yards and scored two touchdowns and passed for another to lead the way for LSU. Van Buren's 63-yard scoring run in the third quarter clinched the decision.

A&M had defeated LSU, 28-13, earlier in the season at Baton Rouge.
