Game Day, January 1, 1942, Duke Stadium

Rose Bowl attendees weathered long lines and rain upon arrival at the Duke Stadium, huddling in ponchos and hats for the duration of the game. North Carolina Governor Joseph Melville Broughton braved the cold to show support for the game, making do with a blanket and scarf. Meanwhile Coach Wade and the Duke bench kept warm in their overcoats.
