ORANGE BOWL COMMITTEE

ORANGE BOWL COMMITTEE

OUR MISSION THE ORANGE BOWL COMMITTEE IS A NON-PROFIT SPORTS ORGANIZATION THAT PROMOTES AND SERVES SOUTH FLORIDA. OUR VISION The Orange Bowl will promote championship sporting events, related premier entertainment, and other year-round activities to inspire youth, engage our community and enhance the South Florida economy. BRIEF HISTORY Since 1935, the Orange Bowl has worked yearround to organize more than just championship football bowl games and the Orange Bowl Festival. Beyond its cornerstone events, the Orange Bowl Committee remains committed to its various amateur sporting events, premier entertainment events and scholarship programs that inspire youth, engage the community and enhance the South Florida economy. Originally formed to help drive tourism and economic development to South Florida, the Orange Bowl Committee has grown into much more. Traditional Orange Bowl programs have expanded to include those that directly benefit the community and youth athletes. The Orange Bowl Festival attracts more than tens of thousands of visitors to South Florida on an annual basis. In 2012-13, nearly $300 million was generated in economic impact and added media value from the BCS National Championship and

Orange Bowl games. The Orange Bowl’s premier event remains the Capital One Orange Bowl game. Mention the name and most think "National Championship" -- with good reason. The 2013 BCS National Championship Game was the 20th time the Orange Bowl has hosted the National Champion or National Championship Game. The Orange Bowl has also hosted 17 Heisman Trophy winners. MORE SPORTS The Orange Bowl supports, organizes and runs a number of sporting events beyond its annual football game. For more than 20 years, the MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic has attracted the top basketball programs in the country at the annual one day event. Past Orange Bowl Basketball Classics have produced overtime thrillers, NCAA Champions and numerous first round NBA draft picks. The Orange Bowl International Tennis Championships, an ITF Group A Series Tournament, annually host more the 1,000 competitors from over 80 countries. Past participants include Roger Federer, Andre Agassi, John McEnroe and Chris Evert. The Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta brings more than 600 youth sailors from around the world to South Florida for a five-day

competition. An annual fixture in the Orange Bowl Festival, the International Youth Regatta takes place at the Coral Reef Yacht Club. Every January, college swimming and diving teams from around the county spend a month at the Jacobs Aquatic Center in Key Largo. The conclusion of the month-long training culminates with the Orange Bowl Swim Classic which pits eight of the top NCAA swimming and diving teams against one another in a day-long event. More recently, the Orange Bowl has added the lacrosse and paddle to its stable of sporting events. The Sunshine State Games Lacrosse Tournament presented by the Orange Bowl builds on the organization's tradition of supporting youth while the Orange Bowl Paddle Championships features both competitive races and recreational opportunities, while raising funds for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. The Orange Bowl supports youth sports in the community through the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance presented by Sports Authority, which serves more than 16,000 youngsters in nine South Florida counties and includes the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance Championships and the Orange Bowl Cheer and Dance Championships.

POSITIVELY SHAPING THE SOUTH FLORIDA COMMUNITY OUR MISSION AND VISION Created in 1935, the Orange Bowl Committee was formed for the purpose of generating tourism for South Florida through an annual football game and supporting events. The non-profit, sports organization that promotes and serves the South Florida community has grown to 360 members since its inception and it has expanded beyond Greater Miami to become a cornerstone of the entire South Florida area. The Orange Bowl is not just a football game; it is an organization that generates hundreds of millions of dollars for the sole purpose of making our community stronger to help inspire the youth and enhance the South Florida economy. On top of support from Committee members and staff, approximately one thousand additional community volunteers, also known as “Ambassadors,” help make us, our events, and our community stronger by donating their time for a tremendous cause. South Florida has become the popular tourist destination that it is today with great assistance from the Orange Bowl and its economic impact. Not only does the Orange Bowl promote championship sporting events and premier entertainment year in and year out, but for 80 years it has created a legacy of charitable contributions and community outreach in order to engage the South Florida community. BOLSTERING THE ECONOMY The 2012-13 Orange Bowl Festival, including the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship and the 79th Discover Orange Bowl, generated a total of $298.1 million in new economic impact and media exposure value for South Florida, according to a study conducted by Conventions, Sports & Leisure International. The amount is nearly 50% more than the economic impact generated the last time the Orange Bowl double-hosted an Orange Bowl and BCS National Championship game in 2008-09. The Orange Bowl has been helping South Florida become a better place for local business owners for years. Orange Bowl events and activities help drive local businesses and build a stronger South Florida economy. Each year our bowl game and affiliated events attract tens of thousands of visitors who fuel the local economy with millions of dollars. This translates into jobs and benefits for local hospitality and service industries and vendors, in line with our mission of serving the South Florida community.

SUPPORT OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS AND HIGHER EDUCATION Over the past 15 years, the Orange Bowl has provided nearly $1.5 million in scholarships to high school student athletes and institutions of higher education. Through programs such as the Orange Bowl Impact and Excellence Awards, a celebration that recognizes outstanding high school scholarathletes in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, the Orange Bowl continues to invest in the academic and athletic futures of South Florida’s youth. In addition to its scholarship recipients in MiamiDade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Orange Bowl supports the ACC Inter-Institutional Scholarship Fund, and other various programs whose missions fall in line with the Orange Bowl’s commitment to academics and athletics. Throughout its 80 years of existence, payouts from Orange Bowl games have led to participating schools and conferences receiving in excess of half a billion dollars before adjusting for inflation. In 2013-14, the final year of the BCS, the Orange Bowl contributed to the nearly $200 million in bowl revenue which was distributed by the BCS to benefit nearly 200 university throughout the country. SUPPORT OF SPORT EVENTS The Orange Bowl supports, organizes and runs a number of sporting events beyond its annual football game. For 20 years, the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic has attracted the top basketball

The Orange Bowl International Tennis Championships, an ITF Group A Series Tournament, annually hosts more than 1,000 competitors from over 80 countries. Past participants include Roger Federer, Andre Agassi, John McEnroe and Chris Evert. In 2013, Francis Tiafoe, 15, defeated Stefan Kozlov, 7-6, 0-6, 6-3, in an all-American singles final to become the youngest boys' 18s champion in Orange Bowl history. The Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta brings more than 600 youth sailors from around the world to South Florida for a five-day competition.

SUN LIFE STADIUM

ORANGE BOWL COMMITTEE With 27 years as one of the nation's premier sports facilities, Sun Life Stadium is South Florida’s site of the Capital One Orange Bowl game, as well as the home of the Miami Dolphins, University of Miami Hurricanes, , the Guinness International Champions Cup and other world-class events. This multi-purpose, open-air complex hosted its first football game in August 1987 and its first regular season Major League Baseball game in April 1993. It has been home to five Super Bowls, four BCS National Championships and was the first stadium to host the NFL Pro Bowl after 30 years of the game being held in Hawaii.

participant opportunities. The Orange Bowl Paddle Championships was also added, featuring both competitive races and recreational opportunities, while raising funds for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. SUPPORT OF YOUTH PROGRAMS The Orange Bowl’s major community outreach initiative is the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (Orange Bowl YFA). The Orange Bowl’s support of youth programs came full circle in 2012 when Geno Smith led the West Virginia Mountaineers to a 70-33 victory over the Clemson Tigers in the 2012 Orange Bowl. Smith was born and raised in South Florida and played in the Orange Bowl YFA with the Miami Gardens Chargers. Smith helped the Chargers earn victories in the 2003 and 2004 Orange Bowl YFA Championships, which were held at the old Orange Bowl Stadium. Smith shattered the Orange Bowl record book in that game, setting records for passing yards (407), passing touchdowns (6) and total touchdowns (7). The Orange Bowl invests approximately $600,000 annually as well as hundreds of volunteer and staff hours to serve more than 16,000 young football players and cheerleaders who participate in the Orange Bowl YFA, which has produced such talents as Smith. The Orange Bowl YFA consists of 10 member leagues spanning from north of Lake Okeechobee to Key West. Since the beginning of this program in 1999, the Orange Bowl has invested more than $6 million in its youth sports programs in South Florida. SUPPORT OF ORGANIZATIONS AND CAUSES The Orange Bowl supports organizations and events both in and outside of South Florida on an annual basis, benefitting numerous charities, funds and groups. In 2013-14, that support totaled nearly $70,000. In addition to its financial support, the Orange Bowl has invested thousands of volunteer hours in supporting non-profit organizations in South Florida such as Special Olympics, Make-AWish, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club and many more.

The Orange Bowl also contributes to locally-based organizations and causes, including those that provide participatory opportunities to youth from all over the world, such as the Junior Orange Bowl (which is not affiliated with the Orange Bowl Committee). Additionally, through its Kicks for Kids program, the Orange Bowl collects and donates new and gently used sneakers and cleats to ensure that every child can have the opportunity to participate in youth sports. In 2013-14, the Orange Bowl collected and distributed more than 3,000 pairs of athletic shoes to children in South Florida. The Committee is also there in times of need, providing funding to those impacted by adverse circumstances, and will continue to do so in the future. The Orange Bowl’s donations to institutions, organizations and individuals affected by such things as natural disasters and tragedy over the last 10 years have totaled in excess of $325,000. ORANGE BOWL IMPACT AND EXCELLENCE AWARDS The annual Orange Bowl Impact and Excellence Awards (the OBIEs) celebrates outstanding community service and scholastic achievement. The OBIEs became a culinary experience headlined by a group of celebrity chefs and outstanding restaurants in 2014. The event annually recognizes those individuals who share in the Orange Bowl’s goals of giving back and inspiring South Florida’s youth, through its Keith Tribble Impact Award and Junior Courage Award, and celebrates the Committee’s yearly investment in the community. Contributions from the event annually go to MakeA-Wish South Florida and Special Olympics of Miami-Dade and Broward, as well as the Orange Bowl’s Leadership and Character Academy. LEGACY GIFTS Early in 2014, the Orange Bowl broke ground on its third legacy gift project—a synthetic turf field and scoreboard at Ives Estates in Northeast MiamiDade County.

The Orange Bowl announced its first legacy gift initiative in 2008-09 in recognition of its 75th anniversary. That project was the restoration and revitalization of Moore Park, the site of the 1933 and 1934 Palm Festivals, the predecessor of the modern day Orange Bowl. Orange Bowl Field at Moore Park includes a synthetic turf field, track, scoreboard, bleachers and other amenities for use by the entire surrounding community. The field opened in January 2011 as the culmination of a $5.65 million project spearheaded by the Orange Bowl, which directly contributed $2.5 million and raised an addition $650,000. The $2.5 million plus gift was matched by the City of Miami, which partnered with the Orange Bowl to construct the facility.

On June 17, 2014, the Miami-Dade County Commission approved, by a 7-4 vote, a Performance-Based Marquee Event Grant Agreement, which moved forward the Sun Life Stadium modernization plan. The agreement gives bonus payments to the Miami Dolphins for hosting major events in exchange for Dolphins owner Stephen Ross being financially responsible for the renovation of the stadium without county assistance. The agreement, which is designed to help bring marquee events such as Super Bowls, College Football Playoff National Championship

Games, college football semifinals, World Cup soccer matches as well as other international soccer events, is for a period of 20 years. The modernization of the stadium will take place during the next two off-seasons (2015 and 2016). When complete, the stadium will have a canopy to protect fans from rain and sun, more seats closer to the field, new HD lighting, upgraded sound system, four new video boards and other modern amenities. In 2007, the stadium underwent $250 million in improvements and innovations, adding 360,000 square feet of programmable space. In 2010, new corporate offices were built on the east side of the Stadium in order to consolidate the business offices of the Miami Dolphins. “A Perfect Moment In Time” statue honoring Don Shula and the team’s undefeated season in 1972, was unveiled and proudly adorns the entrance of the new offices. The 75,000-seat, multi-purpose, open-air facility was the first of its kind to be constructed entirely with private funds, costing $115 million in 1987. The late Joe Robbie led the financing campaign to build “Joe Robbie Stadium” for the Miami Dolphins. JRS

revolutionized the economics of professional sports when it opened that year. Inclusion of a Club Level, along with Executive Suites, helped to finance the construction of the stadium. Season ticket holders committed to long-term agreements and in return they received first-class amenities in a state-of-the-art facility, which is still used as a model for new facilities across the country. Major League Baseball’s premier event, the World Series, was played at the stadium in 1997 and 2003. The stadium also hosted the Florida high school class 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A state championship football games in 2005, 2006 and 2007, international soccer, Monster Jam, lacrosse competition as well as various festivals and trade shows. Sun Life has played host to a number of concerts, featuring entertainers such as Pink Floyd, Elton John/Billy Joel, the Rolling Stones, Chicago, Genesis, Gloria Estefan, Guns & Roses, The Who, Hall & Oates, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, New Kids on the Block, the Three Tenors World Tour, U2, ‘N Sync, The Police, the Black Eyed Peas, Madonna and Jay Z and Beyoncé.

In January 2013 the Orange Bowl continued its legacy gift tradition, when it unveiled the renovations at John C. Carter Park, in conjunction with the City of Fort Lauderdale. The $3 million project included the installation of a new synthetic turf football field, state-of-the-art eight lane track, enhanced spectator areas and new scoreboard. ORANGE BOWL: A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE It is the community’s support of the Orange Bowl’s annual football game that enables the Committee to invest in South Florida and its youth. 2013 marked the 20th time the Orange Bowl has hosted the national champion or national championship game. The Orange Bowl has also hosted 17 Heisman Trophy winners and hundreds of future National Football League stars, throughout its 80 years of existence. In 2014-15, college football’s post-season structure transitioned from the Bowl Championship Series, which existed for 16 years, to the College Football Playoff for the next 12 years. Under the new system, the Orange Bowl game returned to its New Years’ holiday roots, being played on either Dec. 31 or Jan. 1 and will host a College Football Playoff Semifinal every three years. In the eight years it doesn’t host a semifinal, the Orange Bowl will feature the ACC champion (or replacement) against the highest ranked available team from the Big Ten, Southeastern Conference or Notre Dame.

ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE

CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL AND THE ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE In conjunction with the new College Football Playoff, the Orange Bowl and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) have extended their relationship with a 12-year agreement that begins this year and concludes after the 2025 season, ensuring that the Orange Bowl continues to serve as the “Home of the ACC Champion.” If the ACC Champion is identified as one of the top four teams by the new College Football Playoff selection committee, then the ACC Champion will participate in the national semifinals and a replacement team from the ACC would participate in the Orange Bowl. The ACC representative annually will face a highly ranked team from the Big Ten Conference, the Southeastern Conference or Notre Dame. The new post-season format begins this season and will continue at least 12 years, through the 2025-26 season. The semifinals will be rotated among six bowl games and will be played either New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. The championship game, to be managed by the 11 conferences and rotated among neutral sites every year, will be on a Monday at least six days after the last semifinal game. The College Football Playoff selection committee will rank the teams for the playoff. In addition to the partnership between the ACC and the Orange Bowl, the Orange Bowl will host four semifinal games in the new 12-year arrangement, beginning Dec. 31, 2015 and every three years after. In the years the Orange Bowl serves as a semifinal host, the ACC Champion, if not in the College Football Playoff, would then participate in either the Chick-Fil-A Peach or Vizio Fiesta Bowls. The Orange Bowl has been the “Home of the ACC Champion” since 2006. The Orange Bowl previously had similar agreements with other conferences, namely the

Big Eight and Big East Conferences, but its agreement with the ACC is the first exclusive agreement between the Orange Bowl and a NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) conference since 1995. Current ACC schools have made a total of 41 appearances in the Orange Bowl, including a ClemsonMiami match-up in 1951, a Miami-Florida State game in 2004 and a Wake Forest-Louisville game in 2007. The 1951 contest came prior to the ACC’s inception in 1953; the 2004 game came a year before Miami’s acceptance into the league; and the 2007 matchup featured the Cardinals who join the ACC this year. Among the 20 national champions or national championship games hosted by the Orange Bowl, current ACC teams have played in nine Classics, winning five. Clemson won its only national title at the 1982 Orange Bowl, Miami won three of its five crowns at the 1984, ’88 and ’92 Orange Bowls and Florida State earned the first of its two national championships at the 1994 Orange Bowl. For the fifth straight year, the ACC champion was decided at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. in the Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game. Featuring the winners of the ACC's Atlantic and Coastal divisions, the winner is annually guaranteed an automatic berth in the Orange Bowl, unless that team is selected for the College Football Playoff. First played in 2005, the ACC title game has been played in Jacksonville, Fla., Tampa, Fla., and now Charlotte. Florida State (2006), Wake Forest (2007), Virginia Tech (2008, '09, '11), Georgia Tech (2010) and Clemson (2012) each played in the Orange Bowl following a win at the Dr Pepper ACC Championship, while Florida State's victory over Duke in 2013 catapulted it to capturing the final BCS National Championship.

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY As tourists meccas go, Miami was still a struggling, largely isolated fishing village in 1930. The land boom of the early twenties had collapsed, and the 1926 hurricane had flattened the area and frightened developers. That natural disaster was compounded by the man-made stock market crash of 1929, which darkened Miami's future. To turn darkness into light, ambitious city fathers worked hard to develop winter attractions that would bring more visitors to the community. A longer tourist season, they reasoned, was needed to boost the economy. The University of Miami began playing intercollegiate football in 1926, but players brought in for that first season got the scare of their lives when the hurricane hit, and many of them couldn't wait to get out of town. Nevertheless, Miami played New Year's Day games in 1927, 1928 and 1929. The games received little publicity and were not part of any festival. Henry Dutton, director of recreation for the Biltmore Hotel, Coral Gables, first promoted the idea of a post-season football game to attract tourists to the area. Dutton lured the Four Horsemen of Notre Dame to play an exhibition on New Year's Day, 1926. He added fireworks, parades, bands, dancing and a golf exhibition with Tommy Armour, Bobby Jones, Leo Diegie and Gene Sarazen and called the three-day affair "The Fiesta of the American Tropics.� Three days was the extent of it. Dutton did not attempt a second "fiesta." In the spring of 1929 a group of Miami business men formed their own version of a quarterback club to help the revitalized University of Miami rebuild its football program. The stock market crash and Miami's up-and-down teams did not discourage the group, then known as the Greater Miami Athletic Association. It was from this nucleus that the Orange Bowl Committee was born. The 1930 University of Miami squad won three games, lost four and tied one, scoring only 26 points and giving up 102. But the support group pressed on, confident that the Hurricanes would improve and tourists would someday flock to the town for "Football in the Tropics." The leaders pointed out that the tiny little community in Pasadena, Calif., had done wonders with its Tournament of Roses and were determined to do the same for Miami. It did not seem to matter to them that Pasadena was less than 15 miles from Los Angeles, a community of more than two million in those years. Miami's population in 1930 was 110,637. By 1932, the enthusiasm of the association's membership came to a boil. Plans for the first "Palm Festival" were formulated. "Have a Green Christmas in Miami" was the slogan, and a festival football game was scheduled for Moore Park.

2015 CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL

Wooden bleachers, seating 1,800, were erected at the corner of N.W. 7th Avenue and 36th Street. At that site, in honor of its 75th anniversary in 2008-09, the Orange Bowl Committee spearheaded a $5.7 million legacy gift to the community to rebuild Moore Park. With $2.5 million from the City of Miami and other gifts, the new state-of-the-art facility was reopened on January 2, 2011 featuring seating for 1,500 people, a Desso synthetic field turf playing surface, track and field facilities, locker rooms, restrooms, concessions, an air conditioned press box, Musco field lighting and an electronic scoreboard.

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY half a problem. Poor little University of Miami was more than willing. "The Hurricanes were so poor," says Earnie Seiler, then the City of Miami's recreation director and the acknowledged ramrod of the Orange Bowl, "They had 14 pairs of shoes for 32 players." But bringing in a team to play the Hurricanes was another matter. George E. Hussey, recreation director for Florida Power and Light, was friendly with Chick Meehan, Coach of the Manhattan College team. Manhattan was an Eastern power in those days. After an enthusiastic call from Hussey, Meehan agreed to come to Miami. Henry L. Doherty, who owned the Miami Biltmore, the Roney Plaza, the Key Largo Angler's Club and the Biltmore Golf Course agreed to put the Manhattan team up at the Biltmore and to underwrite $5,000 of the game's expenses. The festival committee guaranteed Manhattan $3,000 to appear, $1,500 in advance. Meehan brought his team to Miami by ocean liner, the only team ever to travel to a bowl game by sea, and on arrival demanded the additional $1,500 advance. Seiler and his group didn’t have it. “So we made the Chief of Police our financial chairman,” Seiler recalls, “and he went around to the prominent bookies in town, including the notorious Acey-Deucey, and we came up with the full guarantee on game day.” In a meeting with Meehan a few days before the game the sponsors implored him to take it easy on hapless Miami. Meehan agreed to hold the difference down to “no more than three touchdowns.” The Hurricanes, meanwhile, got coaching assistance from immortal Bob Zuppke of Illinois. Miami’s head coach, Tommy McCann, had played under Zuppke. Thinking the result a foregone conclusion, Seiler ordered a giant "Congratulations Manhattan" cake for the post-game party. Miami had other ideas. The Hurricanes, as gutty as the soon-to-beformalized Orange Bowl Committee, held off repeated Manhattan threats, once at the 3-inch line, and won, 7-0. Miami drove from its 44 for the lone touchdown in the fourth quarter, Cecil Cook scoring from two yards out. Seiler scrambled to the phone to call the chef at the Biltmore Hotel to change the name on the cake. The first Palm Festival was light years removed from the pageantry of today's Orange Bowl, but some notice was served that in the future when football was played in Miami, the game would not be the only attraction. Just before kickoff, an auto moved on the field with an oversized replica of a football on top. A cannon boomed, the football opened and dozens of pigeons fluttered into the sunshine Seiler's first "extravaganza." In 1934, W. Keith Phillips, chairman of the Greater Miami Athletic Club and President of the Miami Chamber of Commerce, invited Seiler and others to his office to discuss the prospect of a New Year’s Day football game—to be played at Miami Stadium—to succeed the first two Palm

Festivals of 1933-34. Phillips and local radio announcer Dinty Dennis brought the name “Orange Bowl” to the newly formed committee where it was immediately embraced. Despite having just six weeks to organize the contest, the first Orange Bowl Classic, pitting Bucknell against Miami, was played on January 1, 1935 in front of 5,135 fans, many begged off the streets at no charge. The game site was at N.W. 4th Street (former Orange Bowl Stadium site) and each team received only $12,500 for being there. The Bison routed the Hurricanes, 26-0. The committee was riding a wave of national publicity and, with a year to prepare for the 1936 Orange Bowl, decided to expand the Festival and stage a lavish parade prior to the game. On December 9, 1936, a proposed charter of “The Orange Bowl Committee” was put together. An election of officers was scheduled for the spring of 1937. The charter called for the Orange Bowl Committee to be a non-profit organization and placed a ceiling of indebtedness at $750,000 – a fraction of what each participating team takes home today. With the committee firmly in place, the group invited two out-of-state teams, Catholic University and Mississippi, to the 1936 Classic, doubling nationwide interest. The thrilling 20-19 Catholic victory was played in front of 6,568 fans. The fans sat on wooden bleachers at the former Orange Bowl site. The 1936 game also marked the first Orange Bowl to be broadcast on radio. The committee had to pay the network $500 to install lines, but the game was heard on regional airwaves with CBS’ Bill Munday delivering the play-by-play. Following Munday’s call of the 1936 Classic, the Committee and CBS signed a contract to broadcast the game on national radio and convinced the network to send its top announcer, Ted Husing, to the game. One week prior to the 1937 Orange Bowl,

ground was broken for a new facility. Upon learning of the plans for Orange Bowl Stadium, Husing admired the ingenuity of the game’s organizers. The broadcaster was overwhelmed by the Orange Bowl’s hospitality and despite the subpar facilities, Husing became one of the Orange Bowl’s biggest boosters following the 1937 game.

CBS Announcer Ted Husing

ORANGE BOWL STADIUM BUILT; MAD GENIUS; GAME HITS BIG TIME IN ’39 Seiler, who became a founding member of the Orange Bowl Committee (OBC) in 1937, was proudest of the building and development of the Orange Bowl Stadium itself, a project which began with his securing a WPA commitment to build a facility in 1936. The efforts led to the construction of a $325,000 stadium with a capacity of 22,000. The facility was originally called Roddy Burdine Stadium, for one of Miami’s leading merchants, and was dedicated on December 10, 1937, just in time for an Auburn-Michigan State matchup in the 1938 Orange Bowl. Ralph O’Gwynne’s two-yard touchdown run gave the Tigers a 6-0 victory in the

Miami, pitting undefeated teams against each other. The matchup led to such media and public interest that 32,191 fans packed Orange Bowl Stadium, which had a listed capacity of 22,050. A 17-0 Tennessee win propelled the Orange Bowl to “Big Four” bowl status with the Rose, Cotton, and Sugar bowls. Seiler came to be known as the Mad Genius for all of his Orange Bowl success. He did not object, not to the noun or even to the adjective. Actually, he thought it had a nice ring to it. Jimmy Burns, Miami Herald columnist, started it. “Seiler is mad,” Burns said. THE FABULOUS ‘40S The Orange Bowl experienced immense growth in the 1940s, hosting legendary coaches Wallace Butts of Georgia (1942, ’49), General Robert Neyland of Tennessee (1947), and Bobby Dodd of Georgia Tech (’48), as well as fabled players in Missouri’s Paul Christman (1940), Georgia’s Frankie Sinkwich (1942), Boston College’s Mike Holovak (1943), LSU’s Steve Van Buren (1944), Georgia Tech’s Frank Broyles (1945) and Texas’ Tom Landry (1949). Despite a broken jaw and sprained ankle, Sinkwich chalked up an Orange Bowl-record 355 yards of total offense under center, 243 yards and three touchdowns through the air and 112 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Sinkwich also handled kicking and punting duties in perhaps the

lowest scoring Orange Bowl in history. A year later, on March 3, 1939, Seiler became the Orange Bowl Committee’s first fulltime business manager. Two months later, on May 15, the OBC incorporated as a non-profit organization and its Charter was signed by the first membership. Seiler later became the executive vice president after the war and was elected to the Orange Bowl Hall of Honor in December 1970. Seiler’s successful marketing approach brought Oklahoma and Tennessee to the 1939 Orange Bowl. As the story goes, Seiler went to Norman, Oklahoma to invite the Sooners to Miami, but faced competition from other bowls which offered more money. He chalked the Oklahoma campus with slogans that read, “On to Miami” and “See you at the 1939 Orange Bowl,” showed Sooner players many photos of Miami’s beaches, beautiful women, and even promised to set the team up on dates. Upon Oklahoma’s acceptance, Sooner coach Tom Stidham asked Tennessee coach General Robert Neyland to bring the Volunteers to

Landry, who would go on to win two Super Bowls as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, closed the decade with 117 rushing yards and a touchdown, sending Texas to a 41-28 win against Georgia in the 1949 Orange Bowl. Arguably, the best game of the 1940s came in 1946 when Jack Harding’s Miami team defeated Holy Cross, 13-6 on the final play of the game. With 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Crusader quarterback Gene DeFilippo threw downfield, but his pass was deflected into the hands of Miami defensive back Al Hudson who returned the ball for an 89-yard touchdown as time expired. MARYLAND-OKLAHOMA MATCHUPS DEFINE ‘50S New teams and historical moments marked the 1950s. The Orange Bowl was televised for the first time and played host to its first two top-ranked teams and national championship games while

enjoying a five-year agreement to match the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Seven Conference against each other. CBS nationally televised the Orange Bowl for the first time in 1953, in which Alabama piled up 596 yards in a 61-6 win against Syracuse, in what is still the Classic’s largest margin of victory. The Orange Bowl hosted the national champion in both the 1954 and 1956 Orange Bowls, when Jim Tatum’s Maryland Terrapins and Bud Wilkinson’s Oklahoma Sooners met both times. No. 1 Maryland was declared the national champion prior to the 1954 Classic, but No. 4 Oklahoma shutout the Terps, 7-0. Two years later, No. 1 Oklahoma scored 14 third-quarter points to beat No. 3 Maryland again, 20-6. The Sooners would go on to win two more Orange Bowls during the decade, claiming back-to-back victories over Duke, 48-21 in 1958, and Syracuse, 21-6 in 1959. Other notable games included Paul “Bear” Bryant’s introduction to the Orange Bowl as Kentucky’s coach in 1950, which saw Santa Clara defeat the Wildcats, 21-13. In 1952, a gamewinning field goal from Pepper Rodgers, who would later coach Kansas in the 1969 Orange Bowl, sent Georgia Tech to a 17-14 victory over Baylor. JFK VISITS ORANGE BOWL; NIGHTIME TELEVISION BEGINS The 1960s saw the Orange Bowl host a “Who’s Who” of college and professional football, with the likes of Georgia’s Fran Tarkenton (1960), Missouri head coach Dan Devine (1960-61), Navy’s Heisman Trophy winner Joe Bellino (1961), Alabama’s coach Paul “Bear” Bryant (1963, ’65-66), Lee Roy Jordan (1963), Joe Namath (1963, ‘65), Ray Perkins (1965-66), Steve Sloan (1965-66), Florida’s

Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier and Larry Smith (1967), Penn State’s coach Joe Paterno (1969) and Kansas’ John Riggins (1969). In 1963, President John F. Kennedy was one of 73,380 fans who saw Namath complete nine-of17 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown and Jordan record an Orange Bowl-record 31 tackles in a 17-0 shutout of Oklahoma in Paul “Bear” Bryant’s first Orange Bowl win as the Crimson Tide coach. Alabama continued to appear in the Classic, as the Orange Bowl hosted its third and fourth national championships in 1965 and ’66, with Texas defeating the Tide, 21-17 in ’65, and Alabama coming back to beat Nebraska, 39-28 in ’66. The Crimson Tide’s ’65 matchup with Texas marked the first Orange Bowl to be played at night, as well was the first of 31 consecutive telecasts by

NBC. Texas raced out to a 21-7 halftime lead, but Namath rallied his troops by completing 18 of 37 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. Despite being stopped by Texas’ Frank Bedrick and Tommy Nobis on a quarterback sneak on a crucial fourth-and-one from the one-yard line, Namath was named the game’s first Most Outstanding Player. Alabama won the national championship the following year on the strength of Steve Sloan’s 20-of-28 passing for 296 yards and two touchdowns. Smith carried Florida to a 27-12 in over Georgia Tech in 1967, rushing for a then Orange Bowl record 187 yards, including an all-time long 94-yard touchdown run. Kansas and Penn State battled to a wild finish in 1969. After a Penn State touchdown that brought the Nittany Lions to within one point at 1413, a young Joe Paterno elected for a two-point conversion attempt, but Chuck Burkhart’s pass failed. However, referee Foster Grose flagged Kansas for having 12 men on the field and Penn State’s Bob Campbell plunged into the endzone to clinch a 15-14 win. NEBRASKA WINS BACK-TO-BACK NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS In the 1970s, the Orange Bowl again saw some of the game’s greatest coaches on its sidelines: Bryant, Paterno, Devine, Notre Dame’s Ara Parseghian, LSU’s Charles McClendon, Michigan’s Bo Schembechler, Ohio State’s Woody Hayes, Arkansas’ Lou Holtz and Oklahoma’s Barry Switzer each led their teams to Orange Bowl appearances, but the decade truly belonged to Nebraska’s Bob Devaney. Nebraska won a pair of national championships in 1971 and ’72 over LSU and Alabama, respectively. In the 1971 game, Jerry Tagge’s quarterback sneak on fourth-and-one from the one-yard line was initially stopped by the Tiger defense, but Tagge stretch the ball over the goal line for a 17-12 victory. In 1972, the Cornhuskers’ 38-6 win over the Crimson Tide was keyed in the first quarter when Johnny Rodgers broke a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown. Devaney’s final game on the Nebraska sidelines ended in a third straight Orange Bowl victory, a 40-6 win against Notre Dame in 1973. This time, Devaney moved Rodgers from his usual wingback position to I-Back and the Heisman Trophy winner closed out his collegiate career with the best individual performance in the Orange Bowl since Frank Sinkwich’s in 1942, scoring four touchdowns and passing for another. His final touchdown of the day came on a 50-yard pass reception in the third quarter, before sitting out the remainder of the game. The Orange Bowl Committee hosted its third national championship game of the decade on New Year’s Day ’76 when Oklahoma beat Michigan,

14-6. Barry Switzer coached the Sooners in the first of his nine Orange Bowl appearances against the legendary Bo Schembechler, who made his only Orange Bowl appearance in ‘76. Other memories of the decade included Joe Paterno’s undefeated Nittany Lions of 1970 and ’74, Ara Parseghian’s retirement following Notre Dame’s 13-11 win over Alabama in 1975, and

Arkansas’ 31-6 upset of Oklahoma in 1978 after Lou Holtz suspended his top two running backs. Penn State’s Franco Harris (1970) and Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti (1974) and Nebraska’s Rich Glover (1971, ’72 and ’73) were among those who roamed the Orange Bowl turf during the decade.

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY THE ‘80S: HOME OF THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP After hosting three national championship games in the 1970s, the Orange Bowl staged four such games in the ‘80s, due in large part to the prestige of and the Orange Bowl’s agreement with the Big Eight Conference, as well as the emergence of the University of Miami on the national scene. Big Eight teams Oklahoma or Nebraska played in each Orange Bowl during the decade, including a pair of national championship game appearances by each. Led by quarterback Homer Jordan and defensemen Terry Kinard, Jeff Davis, and William “Refridgerator” Perry, Clemson capped a 12-0 season and won the national championship with a 22-15 win over Nebraska in the 1982 Orange Bowl. The 50th Orange Bowl in 1984 provided a perfect setting for one of the finest, and most exciting, games in college football history. Miami won the school’s first of five national titles in a 31-30 win over Nebraska in arguably the greatest college football game of all time. Howard Schnellen-

Miami’s Bernie Kosar

berger’s Hurricanes raced to a 17-0 lead before the end of the first quarter, but the Cornhuskers answered with 14 points in the second frame, including a 19-yard touchdown run by AllAmerican guard Dean Steinkuhler in the nowfamous “Fumblerooski” play. Nebraska out-scored Miami in the second half, 16-14, but freshman quarterback Bernie Kosar’s 300 passing yards and Ken Calhoun’s batted pass thwarted a last second two-point conversion and a ‘Husker comeback. Oklahoma made four straight Orange Bowl appearances from 1985-88 and earned a national title in ‘86 after defeating Penn State, 25-10. The Sooners competed for the national title again in ’88—the Orange Bowl’s fourth national title game of the decade—but it was Jimmy Johnson’s Miami team that earned its second national championship with a 20-14 victory over Oklahoma. The ‘80s also showcased the Big Eight’s best running backs and Miami’s best quarterbacks, as two Heisman Tophy winners - Oklahoma’s Billy Sims and Nebraska’s Mike Rozier - played in three Orange Bowls apiece. Sims totaled 305 yards and three touchdowns and was instrumental in Sooner wins over Florida State in ’80 and ’81. Rozier rushed for an Orange Bowl record 340 yards from 1982-84. Kosar’s 300 passing yards as a freshman in the 1984 Orange Bowl and Steve Walsh’s record 486 yards in wins over Oklahoma and Nebraska in ’88 and ’89 cemented Miami’s growth into a dynasty. ORANGE BOWL SIGNS FIRST TITLE SPONSOR; MORE NATIONAL TITLES IN THE ‘90S In 1989, FedEx, then known as Federal Express, signed a deal to become the first title sponsor of the Orange Bowl beginning with the game on January 1, 1990. The 21-year partnership would become the longest title sponsor relationship of any college bowl game and ended in 2010 when the Orange Bowl reached a deal with Discover to become the second title sponsor in

game history. During the 1990s, the Orange Bowl set an all-time record by hosting five national championship games, including four in the five years spanning 1991-95. The first two Orange Bowls of the decade pitted national newcomer Colorado against tradition-rich Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish knocked off the top-ranked Buffaloes 21-6 in 1990, but Colorado earned a national championship with a thrilling 10-9 win in 1991 that went straight to the highlight reel. Trailing, 10-9, with 43 seconds left to play, Notre Dame’s Raghib “Rocket” Ismail returned a punt 91 yards for a would-be

Nebraska’s Tommie Frazier

touchdown, but a clipping penalty nullified the play and ultimately led to a Colorado victory. The 1992 Orange Bowl pitted Miami and Nebraska against each other for the third time in nine years, with the Hurricanes winning their fourth national title since 1983. The win also gave ‘Canes head coach Dennis Erickson his second national championship with Miami. The early ‘90s brought about another change in the college football landscape, as the Orange Bowl Committee led the way to the formation of the Bowl Coalition, which was introduced as a means of providing order to the bowl selection process. The Orange Bowl became one of four “Tier 1” bowls included under the Coalition, and hosted nationally prominent teams Florida State, Miami or Nebraska in each of the seven years from 1992-98. Under legendary coach Bobby Bowden, Florida State won its first two Orange Bowls— including the 1993 national championship—with 27-14 and 18-16 wins over the Cornhuskers in ’93 and ’94, respectively. The 1994 Nebraska-Florida State matchup was especially memorable, as college football witnessed only the 11th meeting between No. 1 and No. 2-ranked teams.

2000’S: ORANGE BOWL RECORDS FALL IN THE NEW MILLENIUM The first decade of the 21st century turned into a glorious one for the Orange Bowl when it hosted its first BCS National Championship Games, two of college football’s most legendary coaches, and a total of seven Heisman Trophy winners. The four Bowl Championship Series games—the Orange, Fiesta, Rose, and Sugar Bowls—rotated as the site of the national championship game every season in the first eight years of the arrangement with the 2001 matchup between underdog Oklahoma and topranked Florida State landed in South Florida. The Sooners claimed their seventh national title by

Facing a 16-15 deficit in the fourth quarter after Byron Bennett’s 27-yard field goal at the 1:16 mark, Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Charlie Ward directed Florida State’s “Fast Break Offense” into position for Scott Bentley’s goahead 22-yard field goal with 21 seconds on the clock. However, Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier moved the Cornhuskers to the Seminoles’ 28-yard line with one second to play, but Bennett missed the game-winner. In 1994, the Orange Bowl Committee voted to relocate its game to Pro Player Stadium (now Sun Life Stadium) as a condition of its inclusion in the Bowl Alliance, a successor to the Coalition. With the first Bowl Alliance game in 1996 came the end of long standing relationships with the Big Eight Conference and NBC. The three-year Bowl Alliance arrangement, which included the Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowl, was televised on CBS. In 1995, Nebraska joined Oklahoma teams of 1978-81 and 1985-88 to play in four straight Orange Bowls, this time getting the better of Miami, 24-17, as Tom Osborne won his first national title. A new era began on New Year’s Eve 1996 when Nebraska and Virginia Tech met in the 63rd Orange Bowl: it was the first Orange Bowl played at Pro Player Stadium and the first to be played before January 1. The Cornhuskers won their second of three Classics in the four year span of 1995-98 by defeating the Hokies, 41-21, and behind Ahman Green’s Orange Bowl record 206 rushing yards, would go on to beat a Peyton Manning-led Tennessee team in 1998 to claim the Cornhuskers’ fifth national championship in Tom Osborne’s final game. The 1999 Orange Bowl signified both an end and a new beginning: the Classic returned to Orange Bowl Stadium for a one-year reprieve and was played for the first time as part of the newly formed Bowl Championship Series. Florida and Syracuse combined for 762 yards of total offense in a 31-10 Gator victory.

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY

ORANGE BOWL HISTORY upsetting Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke’s Seminoles, 13-2. Additionally, Florida State, who made its third straight national title game appearance, remains as the only team to play in three consecutive BCS title games. A year before the Sooners defeated the Seminoles in the BCS National Championship game, Michigan’s Tom Brady kicked off the decade in 2000 by passing for what was then an Orange Bowl record 369 yards as the Wolverines defeated Alabama, 35-34, in the first overtime game in the Classic’s history. High-powered aerial attacks from Florida and Maryland in 2002 broke several Orange Bowl records, some of which still stand today. The Gators prevailed 56-23 while setting single-team records with 659 total yards and 456 passing yards in Steve Spurrier’s final game as the Florida head coach.

Stanford’s Andrew Luck

In the 2003 Orange Bowl, 2002 Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer guided Southern California to five scoring drives of at least 61 yards in a 38-17 win over Iowa in the first of a record seven consecutive BCS appearances for the Trojans. In 2004, two in-state teams met in the Orange Bowl for the first time, as Miami went on to defeat arch-rival Florida State 16-14, but the Seminoles would return just two seasons later. The Orange Bowl Committee reached an agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference prior to the 2006 Classic, whereby the ACC champion would earn an automatic bid to the Orange Bowl. The 2006 Orange Bowl saw Penn State outlast Florida State in triple overtime. In a contest that saw a punt return touchdown, safety, five lead changes or times and three overtimes, Penn State’s Kevin Kelly gave the Nittany Lions the victory a record four hours and 45 minutes after the opening kickoff. Southern California and Oklahoma’s 2005 matchup proved to be a special event for the Orange Bowl, which hosted the BCS National Championship Game for the second time and assembled three Heisman Trophy winners on the same field for the first time ever. Matt Leinart, the 2004 recipient, and Reggie Bush, who was awarded the trophy following the 2005 season, made easy work of 2003 Heisman winner Jason White and the Sooners, winning 55-19. The Trojans later vacated the title and Bush relinquished the Heisman Trophy.

As part of a new BCS agreement prior to the 2006-07 bowl season, the four BCS sites would rotate a BCS National Championship Game in addition to their traditional bowl, creating a fifth BCS game annually. Unlikely participants Wake Forest and Louisville met in 2007, with the Cardinals taking a 2413 victory from the Demon Deacons. Virginia Tech became the first team to play in two consecutive Orange Bowls since Nebraska in 1998, losing to Kansas 24-21 in 2008 and defeating Cincinnati 20-7 in 2009. The Orange Bowl Committee double-hosted for the first time in 2009. The Orange Bowl game was played on January 1 as Virginia Tech defeated Cincinnati 20-7. On January 8, 2009, the BCS National Championship Game featured multiple Heisman winners competing for a national title for the second time. Florida’s 2007 Heisman winner Tim Tebow and 2008 winner Sam Bradford of Oklahoma squared off in what would turn into a 24-14 Gator win, their second national championship in three seasons. Once again, the Orange Bowl has moved into a new decade, but this one promises to be as fruitful as the eight that preceded it. Georgia Tech’s

Anthony Allen, who caught a touchdown pass for Louisville in the 2007 Orange Bowl, scored on a oneyard touchdown run in the 2010 game, but the Yellow Jackets fell to Iowa, 24-14, in the coldest Orange Bowl in history (49 degrees at kickoff). Allen is the only player to score a touchdown for two different teams in Orange Bowl history. Growth and change have been constant throughout the years for the Orange Bowl. In 2011, ESPN televised the contest as well as the other four BCS games and the Orange Bowl partnered with Discover as its title sponsor, only the second title sponsor in its history. The matchup featured Virginia Tech making its third Orange Bowl appearance in four years against Stanford – a school playing in its first Orange Bowl. Andrew Luck threw for 287 yards

and four touchdowns as the Cardinal rolled to a 4012 victory. The 2012 Orange Bowl saw first-time participant West Virginia set a number of Orange Bowl records. Led by South Florida native and Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance participant Geno Smith, the West Virginia Mountaineers defeated the Clemson Tigers 70-33, a bowl game record for points scored. Smith set Orange Bowl records for passing yards (407) and touchdowns thrown (6) while wide receiver Tavon Austin caught an Orange Bowl record 12 passes and four touchdowns. For the second time in its history, the Orange Bowl double hosted two BCS Bowl games in 2013. Quarterback EJ Manuel and fullback Lonnie Pryor each scored fourth quarter touchdowns to help Florida State defeat Northern Illinois 31-10 for its first BCS bowl victory since winning the national championship in 1999. Pryor finished his Seminole career in style, rushing for 134 yards on five carries with two touchdowns and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. A week later, the BCS National Championship Game saw No. 2 Alabama soundly defeat Notre Dame for its second consecutive national title and third in the last four years. Running back Eddie Lacy earned the game’s offensive MVP after running for 140 yards and a touchdown, leading the Tide over the top-ranked

Fighting Irish to a 42-14 victory. The 2014 Orange Bowl, the last in the BCS era, featured the Clemson Tigers, making their second trip to South Florida in three years, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Two of the nation’s top offenses were on display and Clemson emerged victorious 40-35. A fourth quarter touchdown and a late interception sealed the win for the Tigers. Clemson’s combination of Tahj Boyd and Sammy Watkins was the difference in the game. Boyd finished with 378 yards and five touchdowns and an additional 127 yards rushing including a 48-yard touchdown run. Watkins broke the all-time Orange Bowl receptions and receiving yards records, finishing with 16 catches for 227 yards, hauling in two scores. In 2014, as part of an agreement with ESPN, Capital One has secured a six year title sponsorship of the Orange Bowl. December 31, 2014 marks the first Capital One Orange Bowl. The multi-year deal builds on Capital One’s substantial support of college athletics by becoming the official credit card and bank of the new College Football Playoff.

Bucknell, champion of the smaller Eastern colleges, was the first team invited to the Orange Bowl Classic, which had been called the Palm Festival for the previous two years. Bison head coach Hook Mylin and his staff took several days to decide on accepting the invitation to bring his team to Miami. They finally said yes, but not without precautions—280 gallons of their own water supply from Pennsylvania to combat the heat. Bucknell back Bill Wilkinson scored the first touchdown and the Bison defense held Miami to just four first downs and 28 yards of total offense en route to a 26-0 victory in the inaugural Orange Bowl. Another famous sidelight from the 1935 Classic was the transmission of the first wire photo across the United States by the Associated Press.

The 1936 Orange Bowl featured out-of-state schools Catholic University and the University of Mississippi, with Catholic prevailing 20-19. The Cardinals jumped out to a 13-0 lead before Ole Miss' Ned Peters broke free on a 67-yard touchdown run, the first long touchdown in the Orange Bowl. Catholic safety Paul Rydewski scampered 24 yards with a blocked punt to give the Cardinals a 20-6 lead going into the final quarter. The Rebels recorded two fourth-quarter touchdowns, but a missed extra point kept them one point shy. With Bill Munday of CBS handling the playby-play, the game was the first Orange Bowl to be broadcast on radio. Legendary sports writer Grantland Rice was also in the press box.

A desperation 72-yard touchdown pass from tailback Boyd Brumbaugh to Ernie Hefferle spelled an end to Mississippi State’s upset hopes as Duquesne edged the Bulldogs, 13-12. The Maroons scored first on a 10-yard run by Ike Pickle. Following a Brumbaugh 1-yard run, Mississippi State edged on top once again when Pee Wee Armstrong hit Fred Walters from 40 yards out to make it 12-7. Then in the fourth period, the Brumbaugh-toHefferle pass gave the Dukes the win. Missed extra points on both first-half touchdowns came back to haunt Mississippi State as the final margin was one point. CBS Radio once again broadcasted the game nationwide with Orange Bowl Hall of Fame inductee Ted Husing calling the action.

In the lowest scoring game in Orange Bowl history, Auburn won 6-0 while Michigan State’s offense sputtered the entire day. Not until the fourth quarter did the Spartans make a first down and they totaled only two for the game—to go along with 57 yards of total offense. Although the Auburn offense seemed to move at will, it could score only once— and then missed the extra point. Ralph O’Gwynne set up his two-yard touchdown run with a 45-yard pass from George Kenmore in the second quarter. He was run out of bounds at the Spartan five. After three attempts which netted two yards, O’Gwynne’s fourth-down skirt over the left side proved the difference. The Tigers participated in the Orange Bowl after the Southeastern Conference officials voted, 7-6, lifting a ban which forbade SEC teams from playing postseason games in bowls other than the Rose and Sugar Bowls. A sellout crowd of nearly 19,000 attended the game at Miami's brand-new $360,000 Orange Bowl Stadium.

A match-up of undefeated Tennessee and Oklahoma propelled the Orange Bowl into the "major bowl" arena in 1939. It took some marketing and public relations moves by the OBC's Ernie Seiler to bring the Sooners to South Florida. Seiler went to Norman and covered the campus with posters of palm trees, beaches, and Miami's young women. After a stirring pep talk to the OU squad, the Sooners voted to accept the Orange Bowl offer over more lucrative ones from the Cotton, Rose, and Sugar Bowls. Seiler then asked Oklahoma head coach Tom Stidham to call his friend, head coach Bob Neyland at Tennessee, to set up the match-up. When Neyland accepted, the Orange Bowl had the game of the year. Oklahoma had recorded eight shutouts in its 10-0 season, while the Volunteers had seven in their 10-0 campaign. Tennessee dominated the game, racking up 268 yards of offense and limiting the Sooners to 81. Play was rough in this contest as the teams racked up a total of 242 yards in penalties, and several players were ejected from the game.

The Yellow Jackets made their first of six trips to the Orange Bowl a successful one, defeating Big Six champion Missouri 21-7 behind the heroics of 147-pound Johnny Bosch, who out-ran and out-passed the Tigers' AllAmerican “Passin” Paul Christman. After Christman scored for the Tigers, Howard Ector's one-yard touchdown plunge completed Tech's 63-yard drive to knot the score at 7-7. Rob Ison raced 59 yards for a second quarter Tech touchdown to give the Jackets the lead for good. In the third quarter, Tech fumbled at the Missouri one-yard line but forced the Tigers to punt. Bosch returned the punt 14 yards to the 34 and Early Wheby raced 34 yards for the score. Missouri drove once to the Jackets' oneyard line in the fourth quarter, but Tech held and finished its season with an 8-2 record and a No. 16 national ranking by the Associated Press.

Augie Lio thought the Hoyas were victims of Southern officiating in the 1941 game, as Mississippi State won a defensive struggle with Eastern power Georgetown 14-7 to earn its first bowl victory in history. It was a scoreless game late in the first quarter when Georgetown’s Jim Daniels dropped into his end zone to punt the ball. State’s Hunter Corhern broke through to block the kick and giant Bulldog tackle John Tripson recovered in the endzone for a touchdown. The Maroons added a second-quarter score and held the Hoyas to just one touchdown in the second half. State was held to only 119 yards of total offense and eight first downs, while Georgetown registered 221 yards of offense. With MSU leading 7-0, Georgetown’s Julius Koshlap hit Arthur Lenski for 46 yards to the Mississippi State four yard-line. However, the referee called it back when he said Koshlap was not five yards behind the line when he launched the ball, a rule at that time.

He completed nine-of-13 passes for 243 yards and chalked up 355 yards of total offense, an Orange Bowl record that still stands. Georgia led at halftime 33-7 and held a 40-7 lead through the third quarter before Texas Christian mounted a late three-touchdown effort.

Stung by two first-quarter Boston College touchdowns, Alabama regrouped to score 22 secondquarter points en route to a 37-21 victory in its first Orange Bowl appearance. Mike Holovak, the Eagles’ swift right halfback, scored on runs of 65 and 35 yards to put Boston College on top early. Then ‘Bama went to work, scoring on two pass plays and getting a 40-yard run from Bobby Tom Jenkins to take a 19-14 lead. Following a third Holovak touchdown, Alabama's George Hecht booted a 25-yard field goal to take a 22-21 halftime advantage. The Tide scored 15 unanswered points in the second half on a pair of touchdowns and a safety to finish off the Eagles.

Van Buren Steals Show in Win

Tulsa Gains Revenge On Tech

Hurricanes Feeling Right at Home

Blocked Punts Bring Down Vols

Jackets Hold Off Jayhawks

Late TDs Key Longhorn Win

Steve Van Buren ran and passed for two first-quarter touchdowns and then sewed up the victory with a 63yard scoring run in the third quarter as Louisiana State University beat Texas A&M 19-14 in a war-time game. Despite coming into the game with a sprained ankle, Van Buren ran for 172 yards, kicked off, punted, and kicked an extra point in the 10th annual Classic. Louisiana State had been beaten by the Aggies earlier in the season. World War II was raging and virtually every able-bodied male was in the Armed Forces. Some schools brought in servicemen who had attended the school prior to being drafted and let them play on weekends. They were referred to as the “V-12” schools and the others were called “civilian” schools. The OBC’s policy was to select its team from the “civilian” schools.

Quarterback Frank Broyles’ Orange Bowl-record 304-yard passing attack was not enough for Georgia Tech as Tulsa avenged a 20-18 loss in the 1944 Sugar Bowl with a 26-12 win over the Yellow Jackets. Tulsa jumped out to a 20-0 lead behind a pair of Ed Shedlosky touchdowns. On Tulsa's first play of the third quarter, the Hurricane used some razzledazzle as Perry Moss threw to Nip Goodnight at the 35-yard line, who then lateraled to Barney White, who sped straight down the north sideline for six points, making the score 20-0. Tech came back with six points of its own in the third quarter. Tulsa's Camp Wilson quickly quieted the crowd, taking the Tech kickoff on the 10-yard line and racing 90 yards for a 26-6 Tulsa lead. Georgia Tech added six points in the final quarter to pull within 14 points of the victorious Hurricane.

While the rest of the state celebrated its centennial anniversary, a capacity crowd saw what was probably the most exciting finish in Orange Bowl history, as Miami's Al Hudson intercepted a pass and returned it 89 yards for the winning touchdown with no time remaining on the clock to defeat a shocked Holy Cross squad 13-6. The home crowd held its breath as the Crusaders had a last-second chance to break a 6-6 tie. Only 10 seconds remained when Holy Cross quarterback Gene DeFilippo's pass was released toward intended receiver Bob Conway. Downfield, the ball was batted into the air by Hurricanes’ linebacker Bill Krasnai at the Miami 11 yard line and into the hands of Hudson. The former state high school track champion had only one man to beat and he crossed the 35 when the game's ending gun sounded. Moments later he crossed the goal line. It was the first bowl game to be decided after time had expired.

Eight first-quarter points, including a safety off of a blocked punt, paved the way for an 8-0 upset of Tennessee by Rice. Rice blocked and tackled better than Tennessee, and it outdefended and out-kicked the team whose coach wrote the book on winning by kicking. There was a record 28 punts, including the Owls' Huey Keeney's 13. Rice Coach Jess Neely began to play Robert Neyland's game, matching quick-kick for quick-kick. The Owls' lone touchdown came on their second series on an 83-yard drive. At midfield on second down, fullback Carl Russ popped through a hole and headed downfield where he was encircled at the Tennessee 15. He pitched a lateral to Keeney trailing the play, and Keeney sprinted untouched to the end zone to make it 6-0. Soon after, the Vols punted on third down and freshman James Williams blocked the punt from the outside. The ball rolled to the Tennessee 1-yard line where the Volunteers recovered. They still had a down to work with. Rice's Ralph Murphy, another freshman, got through to the kicker again and knocked it out of the end zone for the safety.

Georgia Tech held off a furious late rally from Kansas that included a goal line fumble in the game's final seconds to defeat the Jayhawks by a 20-14 score. The Jayhawks were a two-touchdown underdog to Bobby Dodd's powerful Yellow Jackets, but the game was tied at 7-7 heading into halftime. Tech then roared to two third-quarter touchdowns to take a 20-7 lead. Kansas' Ray Evans scored his second touchdown of the game to cut the lead to 20-14 in the fourth quarter. Kansas drove to the Tech 1-yard line with 37 seconds left before Lynn McNutt fumbled on a quarterback sneak and Tech's Rollo Phillips recovered to seal the victory.

The Texas Longhorns came out on top in this high-scoring affair and the lead changed hands six times before Coach Blair Cherry's squad handed Georgia a 41-28 setback. At the time, the combined 69 points set an Orange Bowl record. The Bulldogs held a 28-27 lead early in the fourth before Texas, led by Tom Landry, moved from its own 31 to the Georgia 2. Halfback Randall Clay scored the go-ahead touchdown. Landry rushed for 117 yards and scored the second Texas touchdown on a 14-yard run. After stopping a Georgia drive, the Longhorns tacked on an insurance score for the 41-28 final margin. Johnny Rauch stood out in defeat for Georgia, completing 11-of-17 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown.

Underdog Santa Clara scored 14 third-quarter points and withstood the challenge of Kentucky quarterback Babe Parilli to earn a 21-13 win. Kentucky seemed in charge in the opening half, leading 7-0 on a 1yard Wilbur Jamerson run. Santa Clara punter Hall Haynes contributed on offense scoring the second of two Santa Clara touchdowns in the third quarter to take a 14-7 lead. Kentucky pulled within one, 14-13, in the fourth when Parilli hooked up with Emery Clark on a 52-yard pass play. The Californians gambled on a wide pitch-out to Bernie Vogel as the clock ran down and Vogel took it 16 yards to make the final score 21-13. The game was Bear Bryant and Kentucky's first major bowl appearance. Santa Clara's 3,300mile, four-day trip by train to Miami marked its only appearance in the Orange Bowl.

Clemson backup defensive guard Sterling Smith nailed Miami halfback Frank Smith for a safety late in the game to give the Tigers a 15-14 win over the Hurricanes. The hometown 'Canes were protecting a 14-13 lead with six minutes to go when Harry Mallios returned a punt 79 yards for an apparent score. But penalties moved Miami into a deep hole and on the next play, F. Smith took a pitchout and was dropped by S. Smith for a safety. Both teams had come into the Orange Bowl with only a tie blemishing their record. Clemson led 7-0 at halftime, thanks to a 76yard first-quarter march, while the 'Canes managed only one first down through two quarters of play. Clemson took the second half kickoff and used six plays to get Glenn Smith into the end zone with a pass from quarterback Billy Hair. The conversion was blocked and Clemson led, 13-0. The third quarter, however, would belong to Miami. Mallios scored the Hurricanes' first points on a 5-yard pitch-out play after a 45-yard Smith run. Following an interception, Miami quarterback Bob Schneidenback and receiver Ed Cuter teamed up on a 79-yard pass-and-run play and the Hurricanes suddenly found themselves on top 1413.

Georgia Tech broke a 14-14 tie late in the fourth quarter on a 22- yard Pepper Rodgers field goal to beat Baylor 17-14 on a hot, muggy day in Miami. Undefeated Georgia Tech came into the game as co-champion of the Southeastern Conference while Baylor was the Southwest Conference's runner-up. The Bears dominated the first half and led 14-7 at halftime. With 6:53 left in the game, the Yellow Jackets knotted the score at 14 on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Darrell Crawford to Buck Martin. Three minutes later, Tech's Pete Ferris picked off a Larry Isbell pass at midfield and returned it to the Baylor 9. Crawford tried right tackle for no gain. Leon Hardeman, who had scored his team's first touchdown, got three at left guard but a pass intended for Jeff Knox fell incomplete and Tech faced fourth down. Head coach Bobby Dodd sent second-team quarterback Franklin “Pepper” Rodgers to kick the field goal. Rodgers, a sophomore who would later coach in the 1969 Orange Bowl for Kansas, split the uprights.

Heavily-favored Alabama dominated Syracuse in the most lopsided Orange Bowl Classic in history. The Crimson Tide held a 216 halftime advantage and tacked on 20 points in each of the final quarters to embarrass the Orangemen 61-6. Seven Orange Bowl records fell and four others were equaled as the Tide rolled up 586 yards of total offense out of its split T attack. Big plays marked its advances, including a 50-yard pass to Corky Tharp from Clell Hobson in the second quarter, an 80-yard Cecil Ingram punt return and Buster Hill's 60-yard interception return in the fourth. Even backup quarterback Bart Starr got in on the action; Starr's 22-yard pass to Joe Cummings gave the Crimson Tide the Orange Bowl record for most points in the Classic. A national television audience saw the Orange Bowl for the first time in history—CBS provided the coverage.

Top-ranked University of Maryland, minus All-America quarterback Bernie Faloney, was shut out for the first time in 51 games by fourth-ranked Oklahoma, 7-0, in the 20th Orange Bowl Classic. The Terrapins, champions of the new Atlantic Coast Conference, were college football's dynasty. During the regular season, the Maryland defense had allowed a mere 84 rushing yards per game. Despite losing Faloney to a knee injury early in the week, the Maryland offense came out smoking. Behind backup Charlie Boxold, the Terrapins rolled to a first down at the Sooner 4yard line on the game's second drive. But the Big Seven champions held as Ralph Felton's plunge on fourth down came up six inches short. Maryland continued to knock: eight times inside Sooner territory, but came away empty. While Terp kickers failed to connect on two field goals, Oklahoma's Larry Griggs took an option pitch 28 yards for the game's only score. The Sooner offense dominated the Maryland defense, collecting 217 yards. The match-up was the first of five straight Atlantic Coast Conference-Big Seven clashes.

Duke won the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1954 and Oklahoma won the Big Seven, but the Sooners stayed home because of a conference rule that prohibited consecutive Orange Bowl appearances. This allowed runner-up Nebraska to enter the game, which it lost to the Blue Devils 34-7. The Blue Devils controlled the ball throughout the game. They dominated every statistical category, including plays (76-to-54), first downs (23-to-6) and yards (361-to-105). Duke scored first on Bob Pascal’s seven-yard run in the second quarter and Jerry Barger threw five yards to Jerry Kocourek for a 14-0 halftime lead. Nebraska got on the board with Don Comstock’s three-yard run over the left tackle in the third quarter, but Barger’s second touchdown pass to Sonny Sorrell for five yards made it 20-6. Duke’s final touchdowns were on a one-yard run by Nick McKeithan and a three-yarder by Sam Eberdt.

Sooners Flurry Breaks Open Game

Big Plays Propel Sooners

Tarkenton Rallies Georgia

Navy’s Weapon Silenced

Oklahoma hit Syracuse with three "home run" plays, and was fortunate to escape the Silver Anniversary Orange Bowl with a 21-6 win. Syracuse dominated the Sooners in every category, including total yardage. Oklahoma utilized its team speed and scored before the game was three minutes old. Fullback Prentice Gautt took a pitchout and went 42 yards around left end for the score. A more spectacular long play came with 2:56 remaining in the first quarter. Following a Syracuse fumble deep in Sooner territory, right halfback Brewster Hobby took a lateral and passed to Ross Coyle in the flat. Coyle took off on a 79-yard touchdown sprint and the Sooners had a 14-0 lead. Each team's defense frustrated the other's offense. Late in the third, Hobby got through Syracuse's punt coverage and returned the football 40 yards for a 21-0 lead. Syracuse scored its only points in the fourth on a 69-yard drive that ended in Mark Weber's 15-yard run.

The nation was first introduced to quarterback Fran Tarkenton in the 1960 Orange Bowl Classic, as the Georgia senior used his scrambling ability to lead his team to a 14-0 win over Missouri. Tarkenton threw for two touchdowns on broken plays and completed nineof-16 passes for 131 yards. In the first quarter he threw 29 yards to sophomore halfback Bill McKenney for a 7-0 Georgia lead, and in the third, he scrambled free again and found end Aaron Box open on a 33- yard scoring strike. Missouri Coach Dan Devine praised Tarkenton lavishly, but he also said the hard knocking Georgia defense was a big factor. Missouri, which broke Oklahoma's grip on the Big Seven championship, led in total yardage, 264-to223, but couldn't get across the goal line as three interceptions stopped potential scoring drives. Georgia head coach Wally Butts coached his last Bulldog game.

Missouri held Navy Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award winner Joe Bellino to just four yards rushing and came away a 21-14 winner on a day of big plays. Bellino, however, made one play that left his impact on the Orange Bowl. With the Tigers leading 21-6 in the fourth quarter, the senior snatched a 27-yard Harold Spooner pass that "simply was out of his reach." Missouri coach Dan Devine later called it the greatest catch he had ever seen. Navy defensive back Greg Mather set the "big play" tone in the opening quarter on a 98-yard return of a picked off lateral that Missouri halfback Donnie Smith had tried to direct to quarterback Ron Taylor. The Middies recovered a fumble on the next series, but Norm Beal's 90-yard interception return of a Spooner pass made it 7-6. Missouri avenged a 1960 Orange Bowl loss and would have finished the season as national champion had it not been for a regular seasonending loss to Kansas.

Oklahoma's 30-game winning streak remained intact as it swept by a strong Maryland squad 20-6, in a rematch of the 1954 Orange Bowl. Oklahoma's streak had been kept alive since it beat Maryland 70 two years earlier. The Terrapins came into this game riding their own 15-game streak. A slow first half produced only a Maryland touchdown, but the explosive speed of Bud Wilkinson's number one-ranked Sooners slowly wore down the Terrapins. The Sooners took command in the third quarter. Quarterback Tommy McDonald's 32- yard punt return before Oklahoma's first offensive series put the ball at the Maryland 46. A sevenplay drive ensued in which the Sooners raced from one play to the next in a speedup offense that confused the Terrapins. During one span, Oklahoma ran three plays in 38 actual seconds. McDonald scored on a four-yard touchdown run to cap off the drive. On their next series, Oklahoma utilized the hurry-up offense once again. The 16-play drive ended with a 1-yard sneak by Jay O'Neal and a 14-6 lead. The Terrapins threatened soon after, but a Jerry Tubbs interception stopped them at the Sooner 26. Maryland came right back and had a first down at the Oklahoma 30, but Carl Dodd intercepted a Lynn Beightol pass and raced 82 yards for the touchdown.

2015 CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL

Clemson mounted one of the greatest comebacks in Orange Bowl history, but fell short when Colorado intercepted a pass deep in its territory on the last play of the game. In that final series, Clemson's Willie Smith recovered a Buffalo fumble at the Colorado 27 with his team trailing 27-21. But the Buff’s Bob Stransky intercepted quarterback Charlie Bussey's pass to save the game. After a scoreless first quarter, Colorado stormed to three quick touchdowns. The Buffaloes narrowly missed a fourth touchdown and went into the locker room with a 20-0 cushion. An inspiring speech by Clemson head coach Frank Howard, in which he threatened to resign if he didn't get a better effort from his team, followed. His squad responded with three second-half scores on a pair of runs by Joel Wells and another by Bob Spooner. A shocked Colorado squad saw the Tigers take a 21-20 lead with 11:22 to go. Although leading, Clemson attempted an onside kick, but Colorado recovered. The Buffaloes marched 53 yards in eight plays and went ahead for good on John Bayuk's second touchdown of the day.

Fourth-ranked Oklahoma unleashed a furious attack in the fourth quarter, scoring 27 unanswered points to break open a close game against Duke. With the score 21-14, Oklahoma capitalized on three Duke miscues, scoring three times in the next 3:23 and turning the game into a 48-21 rout. A crowd of 76,561 was on hand to witness the Sooners' third Orange Bowl victory in five years. Following a Duke fumble and blocked kick, the Sooners used the combination of Brewster Hobby to David Baker and Baker to Hobby for two more scores. In the first quarter, Baker's 94-yard interception return of a Bob Brodhead pass gave the Sooners a 7-0 lead and marked the longest such return in Orange Bowl history. The night's scoring ended on a similar play, a 68-yard interception return and lateral to Dick Carpenter at the Duke 30. Although Oklahoma was penalized 150 yards and turned the ball over four times, it was never a factor in the game. Duke could not capitalize on three Sooner interceptions by turning the ball over four times.

Blocked Punts Propel Tigers

JFK Watches ‘Bama’s Show

Nebraska Holds Off Late Rally

First Night Game a Classic

Sloan Passes Underdog Alabama

Smith Runs Over Georgia Tech

LSU's Paul Dietzel, coaching his last game for the Tigers, watched while his team turned Colorado punts into scores in a 25-7 triumph over the Big Seven opponent. Dietzel noticed a quirk in the Colorado center's snaps and used it to his team's advantage in this battle of top-10, once-beaten teams. In the early going, Wendell Harris' 30-yard field goal gave LSU a 3-0 lead. Then, the Tigers blocked a Charlie McBride punt into the endzone for a safety. Colorado's Loren Schweiniger went 59 yards with an interception return that gave the Buffaloes a 7-5 lead, but LSU came back before the half with an 82-yard scoring march that made it 11-7. In the third quarter, the Tigers put 14 points on the scoreboard on Jimmy Field's run from the 9 and a Gene Sykes recovery of his own blocked punt.

President John F. Kennedy was one of 73,380 fans to witness Alabama linebacker Lee Roy Jordan single-handedly turn back Oklahoma, 17-0. Jordan, who met Kennedy during the coin toss, recorded 31 tackles as a defensive battle took shape right from the start. The tough Alabama defense had allowed only 39 points all season and had not been scored upon twice in any game. After ‘Bama had taken a 7-0 lead on a 25-yard pass from sophomore Joe Namath to Richard Williams, Oklahoma botched its best scoring opportunity. The Sooners lost a fumble on the Alabama 7-yard line, after a 56-yard Ron Fletcherto-Allen Bumgardner pass led them down the field. In the second quarter a 15-yard Cotton Clark run stretched the 'Bama lead to 14-0, and the Tide extended that to 17-0 on Tim Davis' 19-yard FG. Both teams compiled 260 yards of total offense, but Oklahoma was unable to get into the end zone. Despite his fumble, Grisham earned 107 tough yards on the ground for the Sooners.

Nebraska linebacker John Kirby batted away an Auburn pass on fourth down as the final seconds ticked away in the 1964 Orange Bowl, giving his team a 13-7 win. Nebraska came into the game ranked fifth and Auburn sixth in the UPI poll. The AP poll figured it the opposite way. With the help of a Bob Brown block, Nebraska quarterback Dennis Claridge ignited the Big Red early, taking a bootleg 68 yards on only the third play of the game. Dave Theisen added a pair of field goals and the Huskers led 13-0 at halftime. Auburn quarterback Jimmy Sidle, one of the top runners in Southeastern Conference history, pulled his team within six, 13-7, on a 13-yard, thirdquarter run. In the closing minutes of the game, Sidle had the Tigers in position to win, but Kirby's pass breakup on a fourth-and-four play prevented the score for Nebraska. Claridge rushed for 108 yards on the afternoon while Sidle racked up 96 yards for his team. Nebraska head coach Bob Devaney made his first of five appearances in the Orange Bowl.

Texas upset No. 1 Alabama 21-17 in the first night game in Orange Bowl history. The Longhorns stopped Alabama quarterback Joe Namath inches short of the goal line on a crucial fourth-down play late in the game that would have given the Crimson Tide the lead. The defeat overshadowed a heroic performance by Namath, who didn't start the game because of a knee injury. He completed 18-of-37 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns and was named the game's Most Outstanding Player. The Longhorns' Ernie Koy ran for a 79-yard touchdown on Texas’ first possession. Texas went up 14-0 after quarterback Jim Hudson hit George Sauer for a 69-yard score. Alabama head coach Bear Bryant then sent in Namath to replace starter Steve Sloan. He completed 10 passes on an 87-yard touchdown drive. Koy gave Texas a 21-7 lead with 27 seconds remaining in the first half. Namath came out firing in the second half, hitting Ray Perkins with a 20- yard pass to close the gap to 21-14. When Texas' Marvin Kristynik fumbled late in the fourth quarter, Namath was at the controls once again. Three plays later at the one-yard line, Namath tried a quarterback sneak and Longhorn left tackle Frank Bedrick and All-American linebacker Tommy Nobis stopped him short of the goal line. Prior to the game, Alabama was named national champions by both the UPI and AP polls.

Alabama coach Bear Bryant gave quarterback Steve Sloan the green light to throw on any down, and Sloan set Orange Bowl passing records in leading the Tide to a 39-28 victory over powerhouse Nebraska. Sloan completed 20-of-28 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns. A fine three-touchdown performance by Nebraska quarterback Bob Churchich was not enough to overcome four Nebraska fumbles and a 24-7 halftime deficit. In his first offensive series, Sloan took the Tide 69 yards in eight plays, concluding it with a 21- yard scoring pass to Ray Perkins. Nebraska tied the score at 7-7 when Churchich connected with Tony Jeter for 33 yards. Sloan put 'Bama on top 21-7, by engineering drives of 89 and 93 yards. Bryant elected to go with an onside kick and Alabama recovered. Five plays later, his team led 24-7 following an 18-yard David Ray field goal. The teams exchanged touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters. Churchich's 14-yard pass to Jeter and the ensuing two-point conversion closed the final margin to 39-28. The Tide's Perkins caught an Orange Bowl-record nine passes for 159 yards, a mark that stood for 25 years.

Halfback Larry Smith rushed for 187 yards, including a third-quarter 94yard touchdown sprint, as Florida rolled over eighth-ranked Georgia Tech 27-12. Tech trailed 7-6 and was at the Florida six yard line in the third quarter when Bobby Downs intercepted a pass from the Yellow Jackets' Kim King. On the next play, Smith took a handoff from Heisman winner Steve Spurrier and went 94 yards to put the Gators up 14-6. Florida went on to dominate after Smith's run. Graham McKeel's second of his two one-yard touchdown runs and Larry Good's 25-yard run in the fourth quarter made it 27-6. Tech scored the first touchdown of the day—a 10-yard pass from King to Craig Baynham—to take the initial 6-0 lead. The Jackets didn't score again until the fourth quarter when Jack Coons gathered in a 5yard Harmon Wages' aerial. The Yellow Jackets' Lenny Snow was a bright spot, rushing for 110 yards and hauling in a 52-yard pass reception. The 1967 Orange Bowl marked legendary Bobby Dodd's last appearance as head coach at Georgia Tech. Florida head coach Ray Graves had been Dodd's assistant at Georgia Tech for 14 years.

‘Huskers Win Second Straight Title

Devaney Goes Out on Top

With seven seconds remaining in the game, a 43-yard field goal attempt by Tennessee's Karl Kremser sailed wide right, leaving Oklahoma with a narrow 26-24 Orange Bowl victory over Tennessee. The miss saved Oklahoma firstyear coach Chuck Fairbanks from being the game's goat after he made a coaching miscue minutes earlier. Facing fourth-and-one from his own 43-yard line with 1:54 left, Fairbanks gambled and went for the first down, but the Sooners were stopped. The ball was given to tailback Steve Owens, who was met by blitzing Tennessee linebacker Jack Reynolds before he could take a step. Tennessee, which scored all 24 of its points in the second half, worked it into field goal range before Kremser missed. Oklahoma's offense came out steaming in the first half, getting three touchdowns led by Most Outstanding Player Bob Warmack. Tennessee came alive in the third, ignited by Jimmy Glover's 36-yard interception return for six points. That was followed by a 5-yard Fulton scoring run and a Kremser field goal that closed it to 19-17. Oklahoma's Bob Stephenson briefly broke the momentum with a 25-yard interception return that made it 26-17, but Tennessee countered with a late 1yard run by Dewey Warren.

Given a second try due to a Kansas penalty, Penn State scored on a late two-point conversion to beat the Jayhawks, 15-14, in the 35th Orange Bowl. Kansas held on the previous attempt, but referee Foster Grose noticed 12 men on the field and awarded a second try to the Nittany Lions. Bob Campbell swept over the left side of the line for the win. This Kansas team, the only one ever to win the Big Eight title, scored first on a Mike Reeves 2yard run. Penn State running back Charlie Pittman came back with a 13-yard touchdown to even it up at halftime. Following a scoreless third quarter, fullback John Riggins' 1-yard run put the Jayhawks up 147. Kansas looked like it would score again but head coach Pepper Rodgers elected to run the ball on a fourth-and-one at the Penn State 14 yard line. Instead of the sure three points, Riggins was stopped for no gain by Penn State's Pete Johnson. With 1:16 to go and still trailing by seven, Penn State partially blocked a Kansas punt, and took over at midfield. Chuck Burkhart completed a deep pass to Campbell, who was knocked out at the 3. Burkhart eventually scored on a 1-yard run that made it Kansas 14, Penn State 13.

Second-ranked Penn State saw its chances for a national title expire when Texas finished its season earlier in the day with a Cotton Bowl title, but Joe Paterno's squad still completed an undefeated season with a 10-3 win over Missouri. Penn State scored all 10 of its points in a 21second span during the first quarter. Following a 29-yard field goal, the Nittany Lions recovered a Missouri fumble on the ensuing kickoff and quarterback Chuck Burkhart hit Lydell Mitchell with a 28-yard touchdown strike on the next play. Missouri lost two fumbles and had an Orange Bowl-record seven passes intercepted by the Penn State defense. Penn State sophomore Franco Harris had 17 carries for 46 yards in a game that featured 19 future National Football League stars.

Coach Bob Devaney's Nebraska Cornhuskers won their first of two consecutive national championships by virtue of a 17-12 win over LSU. Earlier in the day, top-ranked Texas was upset by Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl and number two-ranked Ohio State was shocked by Stanford and Jim Plunkett in the Rose Bowl. That left the door to the title wide open for the third-ranked 'Huskers. They responded by building a 10-0 first quarter lead. A pair of Mark Lumpkin field goals and a 31yard touchdown pass from Buddy Lee to Al Coffee on the last play of the third quarter gave the Tigers a 12-10 lead. Nebraska showed its grit by regaining the lead with 8:50 left in the game. On fourth-and-one, quarterback Jerry Tagge was stopped inches short of the goal, but he stretched the ball over the line for the national title.

A match-up between top-ranked Nebraska and No. 2 Alabama was billed as the "Game of the Century II,” but the 'Huskers proved to be far superior as they handed Alabama and coach Paul “Bear” Bryant a 38-6 defeat. The game followed Nebraska’s 35-31 "Game of the Century I" win over Oklahoma that earned the Big Eight title and Orange Bowl berth. Nebraska jumped to a 14-0 lead on a Jeff Kinney two-yard run and then 'Husker AllAmerican Johnny Rodgers' 77 yard punt return for a touchdown on the final play of the first quarter. Two more 'Husker scores engineered by Jerry Tagge in the second quarter gave Coach Bob Devaney's team a comfortable 28-0 halftime lead. Devaney notched his first win in three tries over Bryant.

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers closed out his collegiate career in style, scoring four touchdowns and passing for another as Nebraska became the first team to win three straight Orange Bowl titles by romping over Notre Dame, 40-6. The game also was the last for Nebraska Head Coach Bob Devaney, as he closed out his illustrious 16year coaching career with the best record in college football (136-30-7). Devaney moved Rodgers to I-back from his usual wingback position, and on the game's first play, the senior took a pitchout for a big gainer and a sign of things to come. "Johnny R" capped his career by scoring on runs of 8, 4 and 5 yards. He also caught the Irish defense off guard by tossing a 52-yard halfback touchdown pass to Frosty Anderson in the second quarter. Rodgers scored the last of his record 50 Nebraska touchdowns on a 50-yard pass reception from quarterback David Humm in the third quarter and then sat out the rest of the game.

Undefeated Penn State moved its record to 12-0 on the season as it took advantage of consistently poor LSU field position to win 16-9. LSU out-gained the Nittany Lions 274 yards to 185 and held Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti to 50 yards. Cappelletti did score the Nittany Lions’ final touchdown on a one-yard plunge in the second quarter, but the game’s big play was a spectacular 72-yard touchdown catch by Chuck Herd off a pass from Tom Shuman early in the second quarter. LSU scored first on a three-yard run by Steve Rogers, and Penn State retaliated with a 44-yard field goal by Chris Bahr to make it 7-3 at the end of the first quarter. Herd’s catch and Cappelletti’s plunge put PSU ahead 16-7 at the half. Although Penn State finished undefeated, the polls still had the Nittany Lions ranked fifth.

Notre Dame players sent coach Ara Parseghian out with a win, upsetting number one-ranked Alabama 13-11, in an exciting Orange Bowl contest that went down to the wire. With less than two minutes remaining, Alabama needed just a field goal for the win. Facing a second-and-two situation on the Notre Dame 38, Alabama quarterback Richard Todd was intercepted by Reggie Barnett. Underdog Notre Dame led quickly in this contest, 13-0, on a pair of touchdown runs by Wayne Bullock and Mark McLane. Alabama cut it to 13-3 at the half on a 21-yard field goal by Danny Ridgeway. In the fourth quarter, Todd hit Russ Schamun on a 48-yard scoring strike and followed it up with a two-point conversion pitch to George Pugh to narrow the gap to 13-11. A few more yards and the Tide would be in field goal range, but Barnett stepped in front of intended receiver, intercepted the Alabama pass and sealed the victory for Notre Dame.

Second-ranked Oklahoma survived a defensive battle with Big Ten runner-up and fourthranked Michigan, winning its second national championship in the Orange Bowl by a 14-6 score. The Sooners, coming off of two years of probation, controlled their own destiny after UCLA upset No.1 Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. After three quarters of play, Oklahoma was protecting a 7-0 lead. On the first play of the fourth quarter, quarterback Steve Davis ran 10 yards to increase the Sooner lead to 14-0, but Michigan recovered an Oklahoma fumble on the Sooner 2 and Gordon Bell took it in to make it 14-6. The Sooner defense then took over, and the Michigan offense never made it past midfield again. Oklahoma's defensive effort was led by Lee Roy and Dewey Selmon (10 and 13 tackles, respectively) and limited Michigan to 202 yards of offense.

The Ohio State offense, led by second-team quarterback Rod Gerald, came alive in the second quarter as the Buckeyes went on to beat co-Big Eight champion Colorado 27-10. The Buffaloes jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but a broken ankle suffered by middle guard Charlie Johnson turned the momentum to Ohio State. After Jeff Logan's 36-yard touchdown run at the close of the first, Woody Hayes substituted the fleet-footed Gerald at quarterback and the offense came alive. The Buckeyes tied it at 10 on a Tom Skladany field goal and then went ahead on a 3yard Pete Johnson run that capped a 99-yard drive. The Buffs could not do anything offensively in the second half as Ohio State added 10 more points.

Reserve running back Roland Sales set an Orange Bowl record with 205 rushing yards on 22 carries and a pair of touchdowns in Arkansas’ 31-6 upset over a championship-minded Oklahoma. With top-ranked Texas losing earlier in the day in the Cotton Bowl, all Oklahoma had to do was win to achieve the top ranking. Also in the Sooners' corner was the suspension of three Arkansas starters by Coach Lou Holtz prior to the trip to Miami. But it was not to be. Barry Switzer went against his own strategy by choosing to receive the opening kickoff rather than play defense. Oklahoma fumbled inside its own 10 on the third play of the game and Arkansas immediately scored for a lead it never relinquished. The fumbles by Oklahoma backs Billy Sims and Kenny King turned into touchdowns and it was quickly a 14-0 Razorback lead. Arkansas went nine yards in two plays for the first score, a 1-yard Sales run, and 58 yards in seven plays that culminated in another 1-yard run—this one by Ron Calcagni.

Oklahoma, with the help of a 17point third quarter, avenged a regular-season loss to Nebraska with a 31-24 win, thanks to two touchdowns each by Billy Sims and Thomas Lott. Nebraska got off to a 7-0 start but the Sooners came back with 24 unanswered points and held a 31-10 lead after three quarters. Nebraska rallied with 9:12 left in the game, closing it to 31-17 on a Rick Berns 1- yard run. Then, Oklahoma’s Lott fumbled at his own 42, but the Huskers couldn't punch it in. The Sooners, ranked No. 1 with one loss, had lost a heartbreaker to the Cornhuskers, 17- 14, on a late fumble at the Nebraska three-yard line. When the Huskers were upset the following week by Missouri, producing a Big Eight Championship tie, the Orange Bowl officials came up with the idea of a rematch. It was the first-ever match-up of two Big Eight teams in a bowl game.

Sooners Spoil Seminole Uprising

Wishbone Watts Airs Out FSU

Clemson Perfect in Title Game

Fumblin’ Nebraska Holds On

Golden Game for Hurricanes

Huskies Beat Sooners, Finish #2

J.C. Watts and Billy Sims each rushed for more than 100 yards and a stingy Oklahoma defense shut down undefeated and fourthranked Florida State for a 24-7 victory. For 17 minutes, it appeared Florida State would realize its dream of a 12-0 season. Making its first appearance in the Orange Bowl, Florida State took a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard Mike Whiting run. The Seminoles had a chance to double the lead when Bobby Butler blocked a Sooner punt and Florida State had the ball on the Oklahoma 17. But a series of miscues, including a fumbled field goal snap, left the Seminoles without a score. Watts quickly quieted the biased Garnet & Gold crowd with a 61-yard touchdown run, the first of 24 unanswered points by Oklahoma. Moments later, Bud Hebert intercepted a Jimmy Jordan pass at the Seminole 10 and Stanley Wilson cashed it in two plays later. A Mike Keeling 24-yard field goal before the half made it 17-7. Watts finished the day with 127 yards rushing and Sims had 164.

Oklahoma wishbone quarterback J.C. Watts went to the air in the fourth quarter to defeat Florida State 18-17, in an exciting finish. Florida State held a 17-10 lead with 3:19 remaining and Watts, who had fumbled four times and lost three, had been stymied by the Seminoles' top-ranked defense. But in the final minutes, Watts passed for 74 yards on a 78-yard Sooner drive, including a 1- yard touchdown to split end Steve Rhodes with 1:33 left in the game. With the Seminoles guessing rush, Watts lofted a two-point conversion pass to tight end Forrest Valora for the lead. The Seminoles had one last shot to win, but Bill Capece's 62-yard field goal attempt just missed. Florida State, 10-1 coming into the game, scored first when Ricky Williams culminated a 70- yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown run. Oklahoma's Mike Keeling made good on a 53-yard field goal attempt right before halftime to cut the lead to 7-3. The Sooners took the second half kickoff 78 yards, with David Overstreet scoring from the 4. Florida State then evened it up at 10-10 at the end of the third quarter on a 19-yard Capece field goal. Four minutes into the fourth, a botched Sooner punt snap was recovered in the endzone by AllAmerican cornerback Bobby Butler and the Seminoles had a 17-10 lead.

Top-ranked Clemson won its first national championship and finished with its third perfect season in its 88-year history with a 22-15 win over Nebraska. After Clemson took a 22-7 lead into the fourth quarter behind three Donald Igwebuike field goals and a Homer Jordan-to-Perry Tuttle score, Nebraska engineered a final run at the Tigers. A 26-yard touchdown by Roger Craig capped a 69-yard drive and Craig's two-point conversion made it a sevenpoint game with nine minutes to play. But the Clemson defense, led by AllAmerican safety Terry Kinard and 295-pound freshman defensive tackle William Perry, shut down the Big Red on its final drive and the Tiger offense held the ball for over five minutes as time expired. Craig and Mike Rozier rushed for 161 of Nebraska's 193 yards. Rozier also passed 25 yards to Anthony Steels for a touchdown.

LSU came within one point of upsetting No. 3 Nebraska, but the Huskers held on to win 21-20. Despite four fumbles and a pair of interceptions, the Big Red Machine was able to come back from a 17-7 deficit to win. Two Dalton Hilliard scores for LSU came as the result of Nebraska fumbles and a third quarter LSU field goal was also the result of a fumble. Finally, the ’Husker offense came alive, scoring twice thanks to drives engineered by quarterback Turner Gill. Gill found Mike Rozier with an 11-yard pass and then scored the second touchdown himself, giving the ’Huskers a 21-17 lead. LSU cut it to one with a fourth quarter field goal by Juan Betanzos.

In arguably the greatest college football bowl game ever played, Miami won its first national championship 3130, after Nebraska missed a two-point conversion attempt in the 50th anniversary Orange Bowl Classic. The ’Huskers had pulled within one with 48 seconds to play, but Miami strong safety Ken Calhoun stepped in front of a Turner Gill attempted two-point conversion pass to preserve the win. The 11-0 ’Huskers were the favorites, but they quickly found themselves behind 17-0, after Miami freshman quarterback Bernie Kosar threw two touchdowns to his tight end Glenn Dennison. The first ’Husker points came in the second quarter on Dean Steinkuhler's controversial 19-yard "fumblerooskie" play. The Huskers added a 1- yard Gill run to close the gap to 17-14. A Nebraska field goal tied it at 17 in the third, but Alonzo Highsmith and Albert Bentley scored touchdowns at the end of long Kosar-led drives. Nebraska responded at the close of the third with a Jeff Smith 1-yard run. After Miami missed a field goal in the fourth, Smith ran it in from the 24 yards out with 48 second left in the game. Then, the Nebraska comeback hopes were dashed when the conversion pass was batted away.

Washington, the first Pac-10 team to be invited to the Orange Bowl, rallied to beat No. 2 Oklahoma 2817. Backup quarterback Hugh Millen came off the bench in relief of Paul Sicuro to lead Washington to a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns. The Huskies had jumped out to a surprising 14-0 lead early when Sicuro connected with Danny Greene on a 29-yard touchdown pass and Jacque Robinson later scored from the one yard line. Oklahoma cut the lead to 14-7 on Danny Bradley's one-yard run and then tied the game just before halftime when Derrick Shepard caught a Bradley pass at the 47 and raced in. The Sooners broke the deadlock in the third quarter on a 35-yard Tim Lashar field goal, but with 8:39 to play, Millen tossed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Mark Pattison that gave Washington the 21-17 advantage. Washington then intercepted a Sooner pass to set up its final score.

Irish Stampede Buffaloes

Buffs Hang On to Win Title

Oklahoma scored 16 secondquarter points and shut out topranked Penn State in the second half as it won its third national championship in the Orange Bowl. After giving up seven on the Lions' opening drive on a short Tim Manoa run, the Sooner defense shut down Penn State. Tim Lashar kicked the first of his four field goals early in the second quarter to make it 7-3 and swung the momentum to Oklahoma. Jamelle Holieway, who would engineer six scoring drives, found All-American tight end Keith Jackson for a 71-yard touchdown pass on a third-and-24 play. Lashar added a pair of field goals before State's Massimo Manca kicked a 27-yarder with one second left in the half that made it 16-10. The Sooners' top-ranked defense took over in the second half and fullback Lydell Carr scampered 61 yards to make the final 25-10. Oklahoma’s defense was lead by Brian Bosworth (13 solo tackles). The Sooners picked off four passes en route to victory.

Oklahoma capped its third consecutive season as Big Eight Champions with a 42-8 rout of Arkansas. Early in the second quarter, Spencer Tillman put Oklahoma ahead with a 77-yard touchdown run. After a second Arkansas interception in as many possessions, Tillman found his way into the endzone from 21-yards out, putting the Sooners up 14-0 at the half. To start the second half, Oklahoma's defense sacked the Razorbacks' Greg Thomas twice, forcing a three-and-out situation for the scoreless Hogs. On the Sooners next possession quarterback Jamelle Holieway called his own number and scored on a 2-yard run. With Oklahoma leading 28-0, the Razorbacks continued to self-destruct as Thomas threw two more interceptions in the fourth quarter. Although neither turnover resulted in a Sooner score, Oklahoma still put more points on the board with two more touchdowns in the fourth. Arkansas did manage to avoid a shutout with less than 25 seconds left in the game on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior fullback Derrick Thomas.

For the second time in five years, Miami became the national champion in the Orange Bowl, this time knocking off Oklahoma, 20-14. The Miami offense broke quickly from the starting gate and took the first possession 65 yards for a score as Steve Walsh lofted a 30-yard pass to Melvin Bratton. The Hurricane defense, led by linebacker Bernard Clark, set the tone for the day when it forced Oklahoma to punt on its first five possessions. The Hurricanes' first two drives of the second half produced a Greg Cox' Orange Bowl-record 56yard field goal and then a Walsh-to-Michael Irvin 23-yard touchdown pass. At 11:19 of the fourth, Cox came up with another field goal from 48-yards out. With 2:05 left in the fourth quarter, the Sooners scored on a 29-yard “fumblerooskie,” which gave the Oklahoma faithful a flicker of hope. When the Sooners regained possession, the Hurricane defenders blew it out when they sacked quarterback Charles Thompson and caused a fumble to ensure the victory.

Second-ranked Miami, with no chance to repeat as national champion after undefeated Notre Dame won earlier in the day, overwhelmed Nebraska 23-3 in the 55th annual Orange Bowl. On Miami’s second possession, quarterback Steve Walsh found halfback Leonard Conley down the middle for a 22-yard touchdown pass. Conley scored again in the second quarter, catching a 42-yard pass from Walsh, and Carlos Huerta added a pair of field goals to give the Hurricanes a comfortable 20-0 halftime lead. The Miami defense held Nebraska's No. 1 rushing offense to just 31 yards in the first half. Walsh set an Orange Bowl record for passes attempted with 44. It was Head Coach Jimmy Johnson's last game at Miami before moving on to the NFL.

Notre Dame took advantage of three first-half missed scoring opportunities by Colorado and handed the 11-0 top-ranked Buffaloes a 21-6 defeat. The game was barely five minutes old when tailback Eric Bieniemy fumbled at the Notre Dame 19. In the second quarter, Ken Culbertson missed a 23-yard field goal and Notre Dame foiled a fake field goal attempt on a fourth-and-goal on its three-yard line. Billy Hackett's 27-yard field goal attempt just before the half was blocked by Colorado’s Garry Howe, leaving the game scoreless. Notre Dame scored two quick touchdowns in the third quarter. Anthony Johnson's 2-yard touchdown run was followed by Raghib Ismail's 35-yard reverse for a touchdown after Ned Bolcar intercepted Buffalo quarterback Darian Hagan. Hagan's 39-yard touchdown run cut it to 14-6 at the close of the third quarter, but Culbertson missed the PAT. Notre Dame marched 82 yards in 17 plays, eating nearly nine minutes of clock time, to put the game out of reach. Johnson's second touchdown made it 21-6.

The 1991 Colorado Buffaloes, a team of comebacks and controversy, overcame the loss of top quarterback Darian Hagan to earn their first national championship with a 10-9 victory over Notre Dame. Colorado's Eric Bieniemy led both teams as he gained 86 tough yards on the ground and 19 yards through the air and scored the Buffaloes lone touchdown. But the MOP was backup quarterback Charles S. Johnson, who completed all three of his passes for 32 yards in a third-quarter drive that led to Bieniemy's one-yard dive into the end zone—the eventual winning score. Trailing 10-9 with 43 seconds remaining, Notre Dame's Raghib "Rocket" Ismail broke the Colorado punt coverage and ran 91 yards for the winning score—only to have it nullified by a late clipping penalty. Five plays later, frustrated Notre Dame quarterback Rick Mirer threw his third interception of the day. Colorado defensive back Deon Figures grabbed the ball to seal the Colorado victory. The Buffs took an early 3-0 advantage on a 33yard Jim Harper field goal, but a Ricky Watters 2yard run gave Notre Dame a 6-3 lead before halftime. Notre Dame running backs Tony Brooks and Watters, who ran for 46 and 44 yards, respectively, each fumbled on consecutive third-quarter possessions. From there, the Colorado defense took over and kept the Fighting Irish out of scoring range the rest of the way.

OB Game Moves to Pro Player

For the third time in five years, the Orange Bowl was the cream of the proverbial crop of New Year's Day bowl games as Miami soundly defeated Nebraska 22-0, to take a share of the national championship. Hurricane fullback, and the game’s Most Outstanding Player, Larry Jones ran for 144 yards and a touchdown, while quarterback Gino Torretta completed 19-of-41 passes for 257 yards and a score. The Cornhuskers, the NCAA leaders in offense going into the game, didn't earn a rushing yard in the first quarter and netted just one yard on one completed pass. Miami became the first team in 221 games to hold the Cornhuskers scoreless. Nebraska’s Derek Brown gained only 10 yards on five carries, and the Huskers pass attack was stifled by a Miami defensive front that got to quarterback Keithen McCant five times. The defensive stoppers for the ‘Canes were tackle Rusty Medearis, who had four sacks, and Micheal Barrow, who contributed 10 tackles. Miami’s defense dominated while the offense followed Torretta's 8-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Williams with two Carlos Huerta field goals for a 13- 0 cushion. The third quarter proved no more fruitful for Nebraska. Needing a strong defensive showing, the 'Huskers failed to hinder Miami from marching 66 yards on its first drive of the second half, culminating in a 1yard Jones run and a 19-0 lead. Huerta added a 54-yard field goal, second-longest in Orange Bowl history, to go up 22-0. Miami finished No. 1 in the Associated Press Poll while the University of Washington got the nod from the Coaches' Poll.

Florida State won its first Orange Bowl game 27-14, with a 13-point second quarter that proved too much for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers missed a pair of field goals and fumbled the ball away on its own two-yard line in the second quarter. Florida State jumped out to a 7-0 lead thanks to a 75-yard drive engineered by quarterback Charlie Ward that culminated with a 25-yard scoring toss to freshman Tamarick Vanover. On the game's next play, Florida State defensive end Dan Footman recovered a wild Tommie Frazier pitch-out at the Nebraska two. The ACC champs led 17-0 three plays later on a Ward-to-Kez McCorvey 4yard touchdown pass. The Huskers wasted an ensuing 48-yard kickoff return by Barron Miles when Bryon Bennett missed a 39 yards field goal attempt. Florida State cashed in on a Dan Mowrey 24-yard field goal after a 70-yard drive to make it 20-0. A 41-yard Frazier-to-Corey Dixon touchdown pass cut it to 20-7 just before halftime. FSU continued its ground attack in the third quarter, going 85 yards in 16 plays for a 27-7 lead on Sean Jackson's 11-yard touchdown run. Early in the fourth, Frazier hit tight end Gerald Armstrong for a 1yard touchdown to go up 27-14. FSU finished second in the AP Poll for the fourth time since 1987 while Nebraska dropped to 14. The halftime show was cancelled for the first time in history due to flooding prior to the game.

Led by Charlie Ward, Florida State came from behind to defeat Nebraska, 18-16, to secure the school's first-ever national championship. In a game that had two climatic finishes, the Seminoles true freshman place kicker Scott Bentley's 22-yard field goal, his fourth of the day, put FSU on top with :21 left to all but seal a victory. The game seemed to end after Cornhusker quarterback Tommie Frazier hit tight end Trumane Bell with a 29-yard pass as time expired. But officials concurred that :01 had to be placed back on the clock and the field was cleared for another finish. This time it was Nebraska's 45-yard try that sailed wide left, giving FSU its ninth-straight bowl victory. The game set an Orange Bowl record crowd of 81,536 and saw just the 11th meeting ever between the No. 1 and No. 2-ranked teams and just the third ever in the Orange Bowl.

Two fourth-quarter touchdowns helped No. 1 Nebraska overcome a 17-9 deficit, giving Coach Tom Osborne a 24-17 win over Miami and his first national championship as a head coach. Miami took the opening kickoff 32 yards in 10 plays and a 44-yard Dane Prewitt field goal made it 3-0. The Hurricanes pushed it to 10-0 after three Frank Costa passes moved the third-ranked ‘Canes down the field, culminating in a Costa-to-Trent Jones 35-yard touchdown play. Brook Berringer, who led Nebraska to an 11-0 regular season record, replaced Tommie Frazier at quarterback. The senior hooked up with tight end Mark Gilman on a 19-yard touchdown pass play that made it 10-7 at the half. In the third quarter, fullback Cory Schlesinger bolted up the middle on a trap play for the 15-yard touchdown. Back in the game, Frazier hit tight end Eric Alford with the two-point conversion that tied the game at 17. Lawrence Phillips rushed for 96 yards, but it was Frazier who was named MOP. Despite completing just three of five passes for 25 yards and rushing for 31 yards, it was the senior’s fourth-quarter spark that led to the Husker win.

Florida State rallied to score 17 late fourth quarter points in Orange Bowl Stadium, beating Notre Dame 31-26. With quarterback Danny Kanell tossing four touchdown passes— three to Florida State MOP Andre Cooper—Florida State won its NCAA-record 11th consecutive bowl and finished an unprecedented ninth consecutive season with 10 or more victories. Kanell, who threw for 290 yards on the night, closed the gap to 26-21 on an 11-yard touchdown pass to wide out E.G. Green. The drive covered 73 yards and included a pair of runs by Warrick Dunn that netted 17 yards. Notre Dame punted on its next series, and the Seminoles Dee Feaster returned it 41 yards to the Fighting Irish 30 yard line. It took Kanell just 1:39 to get into the end zone on a three-yard touchdown to Cooper. Kanell and Cooper hooked up again on the two-point conversion and the Seminoles were suddenly out in front 29-26 with 6:09 left. A Notre Dame fumble and a quarterback Tom Krug safety made the final score 31-26.

The 63rd annual Orange Bowl, played for the first time in Pro Player Stadium, saw the Nebraska Cornhuskers defeat the Hokies of Virginia Tech, 41-21, on New Year’s Eve. The No. 10 Hokies jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a 19-yard touchdown strike from quarterback Jim Druckenmiller to Marcus Parker. However, it was short lived, as the No. 6 Huskers posted a 17-point second quarter and a 14-point third quarter on their way to their third consecutive bowl victory. The Cornhuskers would score the final 17 points of the game. They answered with 20 seconds remaining in the third quarter to increase their lead back to 10 on Benning’s 6-yard touchdown run. Benning, Nebraska’s game MOP finished with 95 yards rushing on 15 carries.

Offensive Showcase for Gators

Palmer Leads USC Rout

The Cornhuskers rolled up 534 yards of offense, including 409 on the ground, to send legendary head coach Tom Osborne into retirement with his third national title. The ’Huskers’ 42-17 domination of third-ranked Tennessee vaulted Nebraska to the top spot in the rankings, giving it their fifth national title, four of which have been claimed in the Orange Bowl. Senior Terry Fair fumbled a Nebraska punt and it was quickly pounced on by Lance Brown at the Tennessee 15-yard line. Five plays later, Shevin Wiggins scampered in from 10 yards out to give Nebraska a 14-0 lead with 11:28 remaining in the first half. Tennessee, however, refused to surrender. The Volunteers threatened when Jamal Lewis, who broke the Tennessee freshman rushing record with 1,364 yards on the year, ripped off a 23-yard gain down to the Husker five-yard line. On the next play, Peyton Manning hit wide out Peerless Price with a touchdown strike to cut the deficit to 28-9. Nebraska closed things out with a touchdown drive consisting of nine consecutive running plays. The victory closed out the Osborne era in grand style.

The 65th annual FedEx Orange Bowl made a curtain call to the stadium it called home for more than 60 years, Orange Bowl Stadium. The Florida Gators also made a return to the Orange Bowl, playing in the game for the first time since 1967. Using a 28-point first half, the Gators easily strolled to victory over Syracuse 31-10. Florida gave the heavily partisan Gator crowd of 67,919 a show in the first quarter, using the quick strike to score on drives that totaled 39 and 40 seconds, respectively. Florida’s quarterback duo of Doug Johnson and Jesse Palmer finished 22-of31 for 308 yards. Palmer finished 10-of-14 for 113 yards with one rushing and one passing touchdown, while Johnson finished 12-of-17 with 195 yards and two touchdown strikes. Syracuse All-American quarterback Donovan McNabb was held to 14-of-30 passing for 192 yards.

The first Orange Bowl of the new century saw a thriller between Alabama and Michigan end with a 35-34 overtime victory for the Wolverines. This was the first appearance for either team in the Orange Bowl in almost a quarter century. In only its second Orange Bowl appearance, Michigan trailed in the third quarter 28-14, before Tom Brady tossed a touchdown pass to David Terrell and Anthony Thomas ran for another. Neither team managed to score again in regulation, sending the game into the first overtime in Orange Bowl history. In the extra period, Michigan scored on a 25yard Brady pass to Shawn Thompson, and an extra point by Hayden Epstein put the Wolverines on top 35-28. The Tide also scored on their opportunity but came up short when Ryan Pflugner’s extra point attempt sailed wide right.

Oklahoma entered the game with a perfect 12-0 record, but was still considered the underdog to No. 2 Florida State, two-time national champions in the ‘90s. The Sooners smothered a Florida State team that averaged 42 points and led the nation in total offense. Only a bad snap over punter Jeff Ferguson's head in the final minute, which resulted in a safety, prevented Oklahoma from handing the Seminoles their first shutout since 1988. Oklahoma led 6-0 when All-American linebacker Rocky Calmus forced Seminole quarterback Chris Weinke to fumble near the Florida State 20 midway through the fourth quarter. Roy Williams recovered for the Sooners, and Quentin Griffin scored the clinching touchdown on a 10-yard run up the middle with 8:30 to play. Weinke, the Heisman Trophy winner, finished just 25-of-51 and threw two interceptions. Oklahoma QB Josh Heupel, the Heisman runner-up, outplayed Weinke by completing 25-of-39 passes for 214 yards.

Heisman Trophy runner-up Rex Grossman completed 20-of-28 passes for 248 yards and four touchdowns to lead Florida to a 5623 victory over Maryland. The Gator air attack was led by MOP Taylor Jacobs who turned in Orange Bowl records of 10 catches for 170 yards, as well as two touchdowns. Grossman led the Gators to an Orange Bowl record 659 total yards, including 456 through the air. Maryland's offense struggled as running back Bruce Perry was limited to 22 yards on 11 carries, while Florida running back Earnest Graham ran 16 times for 151 yards and two scores. The teams combined for 79 points, breaking the combined record of 69, and their 1,019 total yards broke the record of 903 set by Florida State and Notre Dame in 1996. Jacobs' 10 catches equaled the record set by David Terrell of Michigan in the 2000 Orange Bowl. His 170 receiving yards were 11 more than the record held by Alabama's Ray Perkins (1966) and Florida's Travis Taylor (1999).

The 2003 Orange Bowl match-up between Southern California and Iowa restored a traditional postseason match-up between Big Ten and Pac-10 conference champions. It was just a tad further east than normal. This traditional Pasadena match-up played out instead in South Florida and created a tremendous amount of interest on the national scene. In the end, it was the perfect ending to a storied season and collegiate career for USC’s star quarterback Carson Palmer. The Heisman Trophy winner dominated his duel with Heisman runner-up Brad Banks, throwing for 303 yards and a touchdown to help No. 5 USC beat No. 3 Iowa, 38-17. Palmer led scoring drives of 79, 80, 99, 85 and 61 yards and added MOP honors to his long list of 2002 accolades. USC mounted long touchdown marches on its first three possessions of the second half to open-up a game that was 10-10 at halftime. Iowa’s biggest play came when C.J. Jones returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown, an Orange Bowl record. USC held the ball for over 38 minutes and did not turn the ball over. Justin Fargas led the way on the ground with 20 carries for 122 yards and Sultan McCullough added another 77 yards on 12 carries.

Dream Season Continues for Kansas

Tech Earns First BCS Win

The 2004 Orange Bowl saw one of the fiercest annual rivalries meet for the first time in a bowl setting. The Hurricanes Jarrett Payton ran for 131 yards in his final collegiate performance to take home the MOP. Freshman kicker Jon Peattie converted three field goals and the Miami defense shut out Florida State in the second half in a 16-14 win. The ‘Canes win marked the fifth straight win over their in-state rivals; their longest stretch over Florida State since 1957. The Seminoles loss was their second consecutive bowl loss, marking the first time that happened since the 1979-80 seasons. Like several other Orange Bowl games, the outcome was decided by a kicker. Not only did Peattie hit a career-long 51yarder to give the Hurricanes the lead in the third quarter, but Florida State’s Xavier Beitia missed a 39-yarder with 5:30 to play.

2004 Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart faced off against 2003 Heisman Trophy winner Jason White as the Orange Bowl hosted its 18th National Championship. Leinart won the battle of the Heisman winners, throwing for an Orange Bowl record five touchdown passes to garner MOP honors and totaled 332 yards through the air on just 18 completions. Meanwhile, White had struggled throwing three interceptions, losing for the second consecutive year in a BCS Championship Game. The Trojans took advantage of four Sooner turnovers in the first half to jump out to a 38-10 halftime lead. Four of Leinart’s touchdown passes came in the first half, including two to Steve Smith. Smith matched an Orange Bowl record with his third touchdown reception to open up the third quarter. True freshman Dwayne Jarrett added 115 yards receiving and one touchdown. Reggie Bush accumulated 149 all-purpose yards for USC. Classmate LenDale White totaled 118 yards and two touchdowns on just 15 carries.

It’s not very often when a game lives up to all the hype, but the 2006 Orange Bowl was one for the ages. In a game that lasted nearly five hours, it was Penn State that outlasted Florida State. The triple overtime thriller, the first in Bowl Championship Series history, marked the Nittany Lions’ first Orange Bowl win in over thirty years and was Bobby Bowden’s third straight loss in South Florida. After both teams missed field goals in the first period of overtime and traded 1-yard touchdowns runs in the second, a missed Florida State field goal attempted opened the door for the Lions. Kevin Kelly, who had missed his previous two game-winning tries, connected on a 29-yard field goal attempt at four hours and 45 minutes after the opening kickoff. Penn State running back Austin Scott led the Lions’ ground game with 110 yards and two touchdowns, but it was Florida State’s Willie Reid who earned MOP honors in the losing effort, highlighted by an Orange Bowl record 87-yard punt return.

The 73rd Orange Bowl Classic was a contest between first-time participants, Wake Forest and Louisville. The Cardinals fell behind 1310 in the fourth quarter before their offense went into high gear. Touchdown drives of 81 and 71 yards on consecutive possessions sealed their first win in a major bowl since the 1991 Fiesta Bowl. Running back Anthony Allen scored two touchdowns, one on a trick play, and quarterback Brian Brohm threw for 311 yards and was named MOP to lead Louisville past Wake Forest 24-13. The Demon Deacons trailed 10-3 at halftime but scored on their first possession of the third period when wide receiver Nate Morton slipped behind the Louisville secondary to catch a 30- yard touchdown pass from Riley Skinner. Sam Swank made a 36-yard field goal to cap a 61- yard drive and put the Demon Deacons ahead 13- 10 early in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals responded with an eight-play drive capped by Allen's 1-yard plunge for a 17-13 lead with 12:31 to go. They quickly forced a punt, and mounted a 10play drive that ended with Brock Bolen's 18- yard scoring run. No. 5 Louisville finished 12-1 to ensure the highest final ranking in school history. The No. 15 Demon Deacons slipped to 11-3, still their best season.

In a classic match up between the nation’s second ranked scoring defense in the Virginia Tech Hokies (15.5 ppg) against the nation’s second ranked scoring offense in the Kansas Jayhawks (44.3 ppg), something had to give in the 2008 Orange Bowl. For much of the night, Virginia Tech stymied Kansas’ offense but it was the Jayhawk defense that came up big with three interceptions and beat the Hokies, 24-21, to cap one of the finest seasons in school history. The takeaways led to 17 Kansas points, including game MOP Aqib Talib’s 60-yard return for the game’s first score. This was the first major bowl for the Jayhawks since the 1969 Orange Bowl, and they made a big splash at the start, racing to a 17-0 lead after 23 minutes. Virginia Tech closed the deficit to 17-14 before Sean Glennon was intercepted by Justin Thornton, whose 30-yard return gave Kansas the ball at the 2 with 11 minutes left. Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing scored on the next play. Sparking the Tech comeback was Justin Harper’s 84-yard punt return after taking a lateral on a reverse from Eddie Royal, who fielded the kick. Kansas, perhaps the biggest surprise in college football during the season, won in its first Bowl Championship Series game to set a team record for victories.

MOP Darren Evans had 28 carries for 153 yards and a touchdown, quarterback Tyrod Taylor rushed for another score and No. 21 Virginia Tech beat No. 12 Cincinnati 20-7 in the Orange Bowl. Tech joined Southern California and Texas as the only schools to win 10 games in each of the previous five seasons. The Hokies forced Cincinnati quarterback Tony Pike into a season-high four interceptions. Pike—who wasn't even on Cincinnati's depth chart at the start of the season before blossoming into an all-Big East quarterback— threw for 239 yards and a touchdown, but had his night marred mightily by the picks and getting stopped on a fourth-and-goal in the fourth quarter. The Hokies held Cincinnati to 137 yards, rendered the Bearcats' running game nonexistent (eight carries, 11 yards) over the remainder of the half, and battled their way to a 10-7 lead by halftime. The Hokies became the first ACC team to win a BCS game since Florida State which beat Virginia Tech, then a Big East member, for the national championship to close the 1999 season.

Gators Ride Tebow, Defense to Title

Iowa Earns First BCS Win

Luck, Fleener Power Stanford Past Hokies

In a game that featured two of the country’s most dynamic offenses and two Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks, it was the defensive grudge match between the second-ranked Florida Gators and top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners that dominated the 2009 BCS National Championship. The high-scoring shootout between Heisman Trophy winners Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford never materialized. Tebow shook off a career-high two interceptions to rescue the Gators, driving them to the clinching score with his notorious jump pass to David Nelson with 3:07 left to make it 24-14. Percy Harvin returned from an ankle injury and dashed for 122 yards on only nine carries for the Gators. His 52-yard gallop set up Jonathan Phillips' 27-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter for a 17-14 lead. It was Florida's third national title overall, the third straight for a team from the Southeastern Conference, and it was the Sooners' fifth straight loss in a BCS game. Oklahoma set a modern record for scoring with 702 points this season and put up at least 60 points in each of its last five games, yet never found its rhythm.

In a game that featured one of the most dynamic offenses in the nation against one of the country’s stingiest defenses, it was the No. 10 Iowa Hawkeyes solving No. 9 Georgia Tech’s triple option attack for a 24-14 victory at the 2010 Orange Bowl. Despite a temperature of 49 degrees at kickoff, the coldest in the 76-year history of the football classic, the Hawkeyes had the Yellow Jackets feeling the heat from the start. Iowa earned its first BCS bowl win, matched the school record for victories and could claim their highest final ranking since finishing No. 3 in 1960. Atlantic Coast Conference champion Georgia Tech (11-3) totaled nine first downs and 155 yards, both season-lows. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn led Iowa's defensive charge with two sacks and nine tackles, and was chosen the game's most outstanding player. Iowa earned its first Orange Bowl win. The game marked the sixth appearance for Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl, but first since 1967. The Hawkeye offense was led by quarterback Ricky Stanzi, who went 17-for-29 for 231 yards and threw two early touchdowns, and true freshman running back Brandon Wegher, who carried the ball 16 times for 113 yards and one score.

Stanford turned a tight game into a runaway in the second half, outscoring Virginia Tech 27-0 following intermission as long scoring players dominated the night. Hyped as a contest between two of the nation’s most efficient quarterbacks, Andrew Luck of Stanford and Tyrod Taylor of Virginia Tech, the game was accented by a career night for Stanford tight end Coby Fleener. Heisman Trophy runner-up Luck earned the game’s Most Outstanding Player honors with 287 passing yards, four touchdowns and an Orange Bowl record 78.3 percent completion percentage. Stanford’s offensive effort was further highlighted by Fleener, who set or tied Orange Bowl records with 173 receiving yards and three touchdown catches. The victory was Stanford’s first ever BCS win and improved the Pac-10’s Orange Bowl record to a perfect 3-0 all-time. Virginia Tech became the first team in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision history to win 11 straight games after starting the season 0-2. Against Stanford however, the Hokies could do little as they struggled on the ground. Taylor managed 222 passing yards and his lone touchdown pass was an impressive showing of his ability to escape the pocket, spinning 180 degrees to escape one tackle, then firing a pass in the endzone to David Wilson.

WVU Wins record-setting Orange Bowl

‘Noles Run Away from Huskies

Tide Roll to Third Crown in Four Years

The West Virginia Mountaineers rode a record-breaking offensive performance by quarterback Geno Smith, who grew up in the shadow of Sun Life Stadium, to defeat the Clemson Tigers 70-33 in the 2012 Discover Orange Bowl. The Mountaineers’ 70 points set an alltime bowl record while Smith’s six touchdown passes and Tavon Austin’s four touchdown receptions both set Orange Bowl records and tied all-time bowl records. Smith, a veteran of the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance, threw for 407 yards and broke Tom Brady’s Orange Bowl record for most passing yards in a game. In addition to his six passing touchdowns, Smith added a rushing touchdown. Despite the offensive fireworks, the game turned on a defensive play when with Clemson only a yard away from a game-leading touchdown, Darwin Cook recovered a fumble and took it 99 yards for a touchdown to extend West Virginia’s second quarter lead to 28-17. West Virginia closed the second quarter on a 21-0 run over the final two-plus minutes, scoring three of its five second quarter touchdowns in the final minutes of the first half. The ACC Champion Tigers were led by quarterback Tajh Boyd who threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns. In total, nine different bowl records were either broken or tied in the 78th edition of the Orange Bowl.

After a tightly contested first half, Florida State pulled away for a 3110 victory over Northern Illinois. Senior fullback Lonnie Pryor, voted the game's outstanding player, ran for a career-high 134 yards and two scores on only five carries. Senior EJ Manuel threw for 291 yards, while the Seminoles stuffed Huskies' QB and allpurpose threat Jordan Lynch for most of the night. The win was the Seminoles fifth consecutive bowl victory, but was their first in a BCS bowl since 2000, when they beat Virginia Tech for the national championship. Pryor scored the first touchdown on a career-long 60-yard run, then ran 37 yards for a clinching touchdown with 10 minutes left in the game. They were the two longest rushes allowed by Northern Illinois all season. Manuel went 26-for-38, threw for one score and ran for another. Lynch came into the game leading the nation in rushing and total offense, and he threw or ran on nearly every play for the Huskies. But he completed only 15-of-41 attempts for 176 yards, and carried 23 times for 44 yards. The junior became the first player in NCAA history to surpass 3,000 yards passing and 1,500 rushing in a season. The loss was Rod Carey's debut as the Huskies' coach. He was promoted to replace Dave Doeren following the regular season.

Led by running back Eddie Lacy and quarterback AJ McCarron, the No. 2 Crimson Tide rolled top-ranked Notre Dame 42-14 in the Discover BCS National Championship Game, locking up Alabama’s second straight national title and third in four years. Lacy, the game's offensive MOP, ran for one touchdown and caught a pass for another in the final minute of the opening half, spinning away from the vaunted Notre Dame defense not once, but twice, to cap a 28-0 first half. Lacy finished with 140 yards on 20 carries. McCarron completed 20-of-28 passes for four touchdowns and 264 yards, adding another dazzling effort on top of his MOP in last year's title game. Before a record Sun Life Stadium crowd of 80,120, Alabama scored the first 35 points of the game. The game marked the 20th time the Orange Bowl hosted the National Champion or National Championship Game. Notre Dame made tremendous strides under head coach Brian Kelly, going from unranked in the preseason to the top spot in the rankings by the end of the regular season. Irish quarterback Everett Golson went 21-of-36 for 270 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. But Alabama held Notre Dame 32 yards rushing, 170 yards below their season average.

Clemson wins in a record-breaking nail-biter Two of the country’s most potent offenses, Clemson and Ohio State, faced off in the 80th Orange Bowl. The Clemson Tigers were able to squeak past the Ohio State Buckeyes with a late score and an interception in the final two minutes to seal the victory. Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins shined as he broke the Orange Bowl record in receptions (16) and receiving yards (227). Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd passed for a game-high 378 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was also the game’s leading rusher (20 rushes for 127 and 1 touchdown) including a 48-yard touchdown run in the opening drive of the game. After trailing 20-9, OSU stormed back behind quarterback Braxton Miller. He finished the game with a combined 271 total yards and 3 touchdowns including a 57-yard pass to Jeff Heurman and a 3-yard touchdown run with 12 seconds left in the first half to give OSU the lead at 22-20. In the third quarter running back Carlos Hyde extended OSU’s lead with a 1-yard touchdown. He finished the game with 25 rushes for 113 yards. Clemson answered with a pair of touchdowns by Martavis Bryant and Watkins. Miller’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Hyde early in the fourth quarter gave OSU a one point lead after a failed two point conversion. Clemson answered back again with 5-yard pass to Stanton Seckinger to take a 40-35 lead with just over 6 minutes remaining. OSU’s C.J. Barnett intercepted Boyd at midfield and wo plays later, Clemson’s Stephone Anthony picked off Miller and prevented a last minute comeback.

The Orange Bowl has a long standing tradition of hosting National Champions. Since its inaugural game in 1935, the Orange Bowl has hosted 20 National Champions. Four times, 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2013, the Orange Bowl has hosted the BCS National Championship Game. The first National Champion hosted by the Orange Bowl was the University of Maryland in 1954. That year, the National Championship was awarded prior to the playing of the bowl game and Maryland lost 7-0 to Oklahoma in the 1954 Orange Bowl. The 1950’s saw the Orange Bowl host two National Champions, while the Orange Bowl also hosted National Champions in back-to-back years in 1965-66. In the 1970’s, the Orange Bowl again hosted consecutive National Champions as Nebraska won the 1971 and ’72 National Championships. The 1980’s and 1990’s continued the Orange Bowl’s National Championship tradition. In the 1980’s, the Orange Bowl played host to four National Champions, while it hosted five more in the 1990’s. The University of Oklahoma played in the first of three BCS National Championship Games hosted by the Orange Bowl. The Sooners earned the 2001 National Championship with a 13-2 victory over Florida State, but fell to USC in 2005 and 2009. Alabama was crowned national champion in 1965 prior to the Orange Bowl but lost to Texas in the game. The Crimson Tide also lost a title in 1972 to Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, but captured two others in the game, 1966 and most recently in the 2013 Orange Bowl.

His career continued in the NFL where he was a premier running back for the Philadelphia Eagles. BUD WILKINSON (1978): Wilkinson put Oklahoma on the map in the 1950’s with four Orange Bowl appearances and three national titles. His 1954 squad shut out No. 1 Maryland 7-0, while his top-ranked 1956 team defeated the Terrapins 20-6, securing the Sooners a national championship in each season.

JACK HARDING (1980): The University of Miami's legendary head football coach from 1937-42, 1945-47 and longtime athletic director from 194863, Harding was chiefly responsible for taking the program from small-time into major college status. His 1945 club went 9-1-1 and defeated Holy Cross 13-6 in the 1946 Orange Bowl. With the score deadlocked at 6-6, an 89-yard interception return by Al Hudson gave Harding's team the victory on the final play. Harding was also inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1980, as well as the Florida Sports Hall of Fame. AL HUDSON (1980): It was Hudson's 89-yard interception return on the game's final play that gave the University of Miami a thrilling 13-6 win over Holy Cross in the 1946 Orange Bowl Classic. Seconds before the final gun sounded ending the game, the Crusaders came up with a long, desperation pass attempt thrown by halfback Gene DeFillippo. Holy Cross end Frank Parker, open downfield, reached into the air but the ball bounced off his hands into the waiting left hand of Hurricane halfback Al Hudson. Hudson juggled the pigskin momentarily and then raced down the sideline as the remaining seconds ticked away. The game ended with Hudson galloping past the Holy Cross 35- yard-line and into the endzone. ARA PARSEGHIAN (1980): The 11-year head coach of Notre Dame led his team to two Orange Bowl appearances. After losing to Nebraska 40-6 in the 1973 Orange Bowl, Parseghian's 1975 squad upset Alabama's national title hopes with a 13-11 victory in the coach's last game with the Fighting Irish. That final game pitted Parseghian against legendary Crimson Tide coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Parseghian, a 1980 inductee into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame, also coached at Miami (OH) and Northwestern before etching his name into the annals of college football history with the Irish. PAUL "BEAR" BRYANT (1981): Recently surpassed on the all-time coaching wins list by Bobby Bowden, Bryant remains one of the all-time winners in college football history. Bryant brought his squads to the Orange Bowl more than any other non-Big Eight coach. Six of his teams played in Miami, including five trips by Alabama (1963, 1965, 1966, 1972, 1975) and one by Kentucky (1950). Bryant's '66 Orange Bowl team defeated Nebraska 39-28 to clinch its second national championship. Bryant, who also coached at Maryland and Texas A&M, was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1986.

TOMMY McDONALD (1981): "Shoo Fly" McDonald's running and passing were instrumental in Oklahoma's 20-6 victory over Maryland in the 1956 Orange Bowl Classic. Trailing 6-0 in the third quarter, the halfback drove the Sooners inside the 10-yard line and then ran for a 4-yard touchdown as his squad went on to the national championship. A Sooner from 1954-56, McDonald was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1985. FRANK HOWARD (1981): Howard, the legendary Clemson head coach, brought his Tigers to Orange Bowl Classics in 1951 and 1957.

Clemson trailed 20-0 at the half and rallied to take a 21-20 lead before Colorado scored to win. Howard led Clemson to six bowls and six conference titles during his 30 years as head coach from 1940-69. Howard has been a member of the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame since 1989. STEVE SLOAN (1982): Sloan, an AllAmerican and Southeastern Conference MVP, directed the Crimson Tide to a national championship in the 1966 Orange Bowl Classic, completing a then-Orange Bowl record 20 passes for 296 yards.

Following his playing career, Sloan went on to coach at Vanderbilt and Texas Tech, where he was named SEC and Southwest Conference Coach of the Year during his respective stints. JAMES WALLACE "WALLY" BUTTS (1982): The head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs made three trips to the Orange Bowl (1942, 1949,1960), beating Texas Christian, 40-26, in 1942 and Missouri, 14-0, in 1960, while falling to the Texas Longhorns, 41-28, in '49.

After starring from 1940-42, Holovak eventually was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1985. LARRY SMITH (1983): The University of Florida rode the arm of Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier to the 1967 Orange Bowl, but it was the legs and hands of Larry Smith that gave it a 27- 12 win over Georgia Tech. Smith rushed for 187 yards and caught two passes for 35 yards. His 94-yard touchdown run is still the longest in Orange Bowl history. LEE ROY SELMON (1983): One of Oklahoma's finest, All-American defensive tackle Lee Roy Selmon helped key the Sooners' 1976 national championship with nine tackles in a 14-6 win over Michigan in the Orange Bowl Classic.

2015 CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL

DARRELL ROYAL (1984): Royal led Texas to a 21-17 upset of No. 1 Alabama in the 1965 Orange Bowl, as the Longhorn defense stopped Joe Namath’s quarterback sneak on a fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line late in the fourth quarter. Royal, Texas’ winningest coach compiled a 167-47-5 record over 20 years in Austin. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1983. EDWARD "TED" HUSING (1984): Perhaps the foremost play-by-play announcer in America's sportscasting history, Ted Husing was largely responsible for play-by-play broadcasting as we know it. His unique ability to capture the drama of sports as it was played out on the field, and to effectively communicate that drama to the listening audience helped advance sportscasting to the exciting medium that it is today. After one visit to the Orange Bowl with CBS Radio, Husing became so enamored with the game that he became its most prolific promoter. Husing used airtime during baseball games and other sporting events to call attention to the Orange Bowl, its attractions and festivities. He also has been inducted into the American Sportscasters Hall of Fame. GEORGE POSCHNER (1985): Poschner, an All-Southeastern Conference offensive and defensive end, helped Georgia knock off TCU, 40-26, in the 1942 Orange Bowl.

In 1956 he was elected to the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame. BART STARR (1986): Bart Starr punted for the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 1953 Orange Bowl Classic and was also the team's reserve quarterback.

HEISMAN TROPHY

HEISMAN TROPHY A total of 17 Orange Bowl veterans have won college football’s most prestigious individual prize during their careers—the Heisman Memorial Trophy. Eleven of those winners then capped off their Heisman season with an appearance in the Orange Bowl. In those games, the newly-named best player in the nation has led his team to seven victories against four defeats. Of the 11 times the Heisman winners were on display in the Orange Bowl in the same season they won the award, three of the contests featured the Heisman winner facing the runner-up, including in two national championships games in 2001 and 2005. 2000 Heisman Trophy runner-up Josh Heupel of Oklahoma outlasted Heisman winner Chris Weinke of Florida State 13-2 in the 2001 FedEx Orange Bowl; and 2004 Heisman winner Matt Leinart led USC to a 55-19 victory over the Sooners and Heisman runner-up Adrian Peterson in the 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl. Fellow Trojan quarterback Carson Palmer, the 2002 Heisman winner, led USC past Iowa and runner-up Brad Banks in 2003.

The 2005 FedEx Orange Bowl National Championship Game featured 2003 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jason White of Oklahoma against Leinart. In addition to the two Heisman signal callers, four of the top-five finalists of 2004 played in that game, including Peterson (second), White (third), and Trojan running back Reggie Bush (fifth). A total of 75 Orange Bowl veterans have placed in the top-10 of the Heisman Trophy balloting and played in the Orange Bowl in the same season, including Oklahoma’s Billy Sims, Notre Dame’s Raghib “The Rocket” Ismail and Florida State’s Charlie Ward, who all accomplished the feat twice. Among the 69 occasions in which a Heisman

Trophy finalist has played in the Orange Bowl, 44 players were top-five finishers in the Heisman Trophy balloting. Florida State quarterback Charlie Ward, who led the Seminoles to Orange Bowl victories in 1993 and ’94, received the fifth-most points by a Heisman winner following the ’93 season (2,310). He was selected over Heath Shuler of Tennessee by 1,622 points, the second-largest margin in Heisman history. In the 1993 Orange Bowl, Ward, along with teammate Marvin Jones, began a four-year run in which Florida State placed four top-10 Heisman Trophy finishers in the Orange Bowl, ending in 1996 with Warrick Dunn’s ninth-place showing.

COURAGE AWARD ORANGE BOWL-FWAA COURAGE AWARD San José State’s Anthony Larceval was named the winner of the 2013 Orange BowlFWAA Courage Award.

Anthony Larceval 2013

Larceval becomes the second player from San José State to win the Courage Award after Neil Parry (2003), now a graduate assistant defensive coach on the Spartans football team.

Larceval was honored on the field during the 2014 Orange Bowl on Jan. 3. He received his trophy at the AvMed Coaches Luncheon presented by Deloitte on Jan. 2. The 6-2, 284-pound defensive tackle from Spring Valley, California., was named second team AllWestern Athletic Conference in 2012, but he never made it to the team’s bowl practices. On Dec. 14, 2012, he was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with viral meningoencephalitis, a virus that infects and causes swelling in the brain. After slipping into unconsciousness, he didn’t awake until Jan. 5, 2013 and completely missed San José State’s 29-20 Military Bowl victory over Bowling Green on Dec. 27, 2012. “I think back a lot on it,” Larceval said. “I went a month without knowing any part of my life.I essentially lost a month. I reflect on it, knowing I missed the Military Bowl, Christmas, my dad’s birthday and New Year’s. It hurts.” Larceval lost 40 pounds and needed outpatient speech, physical, occupational and recreational therapy to recover. Although the San José State medical staff said he would miss the 2013 season, Anthony defied the prognosis and was back with the team at the start of preseason camp in August. “My mother definitely didn’t want me to come back and play,” Larceval said. “My dad was pushing me to move on. All the time I was thinking of my three younger brothers and that was motivation to come back and do everything and my teammates wearing my name and number in the Military Bowl. Seeing their reactions when I came back on field was tremendous.”

During the Spartans’ 6-6 2013 season, Larceval made nine tackles (six unassisted) and had one quarterback hurry. He is a child development major who wants to become a teacher and/or a coach.

Previous FWAA Courage Award Winners

Parry, who suffered a compound fracture during a 2000 game that led to a partial amputation of his right leg, became the first player to come back and play college football with a prosthetic leg in 2003. Daniel Rodriguez 2012

“After all he had gone through, he is one of the first coaches, persons around San José State to come to me and put his arm around me and let me know he was there for me in every way,” Larceval said. “When he told me to never give up, that was big encouragement. It was the only thing I could control.” “To see where Anthony was and to see what he went through, nobody thought he was going to be able to come back and play football again. When he got out of the hospital, comes into the (football) office, to see the shape he was in, to be able to get back on to the field is one thing, but to be productive is another,” Parry said. “Anthony is a great young man and put a lot of work into coming back this year. He did a heck of a job just to get back to a normal life and to get back to being a Division I football player is another. It’s very fitting for Anthony to receive this award.”

The Football Writers Association of America, a nonprofit organization founded in 1941, consists of more than 1,200 men and women who cover college football for a living. The membership includes journalists, broadcasters and publicists, as well as key executives in all the areas that involve the game. The FWAA works to govern areas that include gameday operations, major awards and its annual All-America team.

A select group of writers from the FWAA vote on the winner each year. The requirements for nomination include displaying courage on or off the field, including overcoming an injury or physical handicap, preventing a disaster or living through hardship. “Anthony’s story was quite unusual and moving,” said FWAA Executive Director Steve Richardson. “We had numerous good stories of players and others who personified what this award is all about. His was certainly compelling.”

Overall, 116 Orange Bowl veterans have been inducted to the NFF College Football Hall of Fame, including 71 players and 45 coaches. Steve Spurrier and George Sauer were each inducted as both a player and coach.
