"Boston College defeats Georgetown 19-18 before 40,000 fans, ending Georgetown's three-year unbeaten streak in what Grantland Rice calls "probably the greatest football game ever played. -November 16, 1940"
Ive been hearing about that game my entire life. My dad wa about 14 selling crakerjacks in the stands. Georgetown Trailiing 19 to 16 with about 40 secs left BC went back to punt from the end-zone and Charlie O'Rourke ran around and killed off about 20secs while the GU rush was waiting for the punt. Grantland Rice and many of the day called it the greatest College game ever. If we had won we may have had a chance at claiming the National Championship with a bowl victory. Alas, the war came and the beginning of the end for Georgetown Football.
