The Empire stadium field was slippery and favoured the defences.
Ottawa scored in the first quarter with a Gary Schreider 16-yard field goal.
In the second quarter, Edmonton quarterback Jackie Parker passed to Jim Letcavits for a 63-yard touchdown. The Ottawa defender attempted to make the interception but Letcavits took the ball away from him and ran untouched to the end zone. The convert attempt failed.
Ottawa replied on the next series with a 72-yard drive. On the Eskimo 32 yard line, Ottawa quarterback Russ Jackson faked a handoff and rolled to the weak side on a bootleg. Jackson found Bill Sowalski for a touchdown. Schreider missed the convert.
In the fourth quarter, Edmonton punt returner Joe Bob Smith fumbled on his own two yard line after being hit by Lou Bruce. Ottawa's Kaye Vaughan recovered the ball as it rolled into the end zone. Schreider converted the score.
Parker ran back the ensuing kickoff 74 yards but Edmonton could not take advantage.
Fans rushed onto the field with 41 seconds left to play. The officials had to cancel the remainder of the game.
Edmonton had only 44 yards rushing.
It was Ottawa's first Grey Cup since 1951.
Kaye Vaughan’s fumble recovery touchdown was his first touchdown in 14 years of football.
