The 1947 Orange Bowl was a postseason football game featuring the Tennessee Volunteers and the Rice Owls. It was won by Rice on the strength of a first-quarter touchdown and a safety on a bad snap during a Tennessee quick kick. Rice outgained Tennessee 246–145 and both teams combined for 9 turnovers.[3]

The pageantry surrounding the game consisted of a halftime show in which over 10,000 balloons were released and an appearance by Generals Dwight D. Eisenhower and Howard McCrum Snyder. Eisenhower's group also consisted of his former Aide-de-camp Charles Craig Cannon and Coral Gables Mayor Tom Mayes. Eisenhower claimed publicly to be taking no sides, but was close friends with Tennessee coach General Robert R. Neyland.[2]
