The Badgers, who shut out seven opponents, extended their winning streak to 32 games and finished the season beating Mesa 14-7 before 13,000 fans at Arizona Stadium. In one victory over Bisbee, future Apollo 8 commander Frank Borman ran 67 yards for a touchdown. Later in the period, Karl Eller, namesake of the UA Eller College of Management, ran 78 yards for a touchdown.
