This 50+ page newspaper has a banner headline on page 2 of the sport's section (inside): "GEORGIA TECH HANDS ALABAMA FIRST GRID DEFEAT IN 27 GAMES, 7-6" with subheads and stats (see photos). This tells of the upset of Alabama by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. This is considered one the biggest upsets in college football history.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much on other NCAA games. Nice condition.
