2001 Sugar Bowl

Miami 37, Florida 20

Second-ranked Miami defeated No. 7 Florida, 37-20, in the Nokia Sugar Bowl to wrap up the Hurricanes’ finest season since 1994 at 11-1 and second in the national rankings. The Hurricanes led, 27-20, with 12:50 remaining when UM turned to running back Clinton Portis. Portis sparked a 10-play march that culminated in a 29-yard field goal by Todd Sievers. On the drive, Portis carried six times for 49 yards, including a 35-yard scamper to the 11-yard line. Portis finished with 97 yards on 18 carries. On the first play of the ensuing possession, cornerback Phillip Buchanon picked off Rex Grossman to set up a three-yard touchdown run by Najeh Davenport that gave Miami control. Quarterback Ken Dorsey was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, completing 22-of-40 passes for 270 yards and three TDs. His two-yard scoring toss to Davenport gave the Hurricanes a 27-17 lead late in the third quarter.

2000 Gator Bowl

Miami 28, Georgia Tech 13

The 23rd-ranked Hurricanes routed No. 15 Georgia Tech, 28-13, behind an dominating defensive performance that held the Yellow Jacket offense, ranked No. 1 nationally and second in scoring with an average of 40.7 points a game, to a season low 13 points. The Hurricanes struck on their opening possession with an eight-yard James Jackson touchdown run. Miami then took a 14-point lead early in the second quarter when sophomore quarterback Kenny Kelly capped a 73-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown strike to Andre King. Following a Tech score, freshman All-America tailback Clinton Portis set a UM bowl record with a 73-yard touchdown run to give the ‘Canes a, 21-7, halftime lead. Georgia Tech could only muster a pair of second half field goals as the UM defense, behind the play of Gator Bowl MVP Nate Webster, shut down the Tech attack. The win extended the Hurricanes bowl record to 3-0 under Butch Davis.

1998 Micron PC Bowl

Miami 46, N. C. State 23

The 24th-ranked Miami Hurricanes defeated North Carolina State, 46-23, in front of a partisan crowd at the 1998 Micron PC Bowl. Miami never trailed in the game jumping out to a 27-10 halftime lead. Senior Scott Covington’s aerial attack on the Wolfpack would earn him game MVP honors, finishing with 320 yards passing and two touchdowns on a 17-of-24 performance. Covington’s favorite target on the evening was sophomore Santana Moss, who hauled in five catches for 141 yards – including an 80-yard second quarter touchdown pass. Edgerrin James led the UM ground attack with 156 yards on 20 carries while James Jackson totaled 99 yards on 11 attempts. UM’s offense set a new bowl record with 594 total yards and six touchdowns. The UM defense forced one fumble, made six tackles for loss and set a new Micron PC bowl-record with five interceptions. Linebacker Dan Morgan finished with a game-high 12 tackles and a forced fumble.

1996 Carquest Bowl

Miami 31, Virginia 21

The Hurricanes won the 1996 Carquest Bowl in entertaining fashion with a 31-21 triumph over the University of Virginia. Defensive standout Tremain Mack provided the fireworks with a pair of Miami touchdowns. Mack, who was a unanimous choice for game MVP, returned a UVA fumble 79 yards for a touchdown to give UM a 14-0 first quarter lead. Mack then gave the ‘Canes an insurmountable 24-7 lead when he picked off Cavalier quarterback Tim Sherman in the second quarter and raced 42 yards to paydirt. Mack continued his heroics in the third quarter by blocking a Rafeal Garcia 29-yard field goal attempt, the first of two blocked FGs by the ‘Canes. Ryan Clement ignited the Hurricane offense throwing for a career-best 274 yards and one touchdown on 16-of-26 passing.

1995 Orange Bowl

Nebraska 24, Miami 17

The third-ranked Hurricanes’ dream of a fifth national title was dashed in front of a record crowd of 81,753 and an NBC-TV national television audience as the number-one ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers overcame a 17-9 deficit with two fourth quarter touchdowns to propel them to a 24-17 victory and the 1994 National Title. In a tail of two halfs Nebraska’s defense took control after half time putting relentless pressure on Frank Costa and sacking him four times in the half, five for the game, including one for a safety early in the third quarter. With the offense struggling, Miami’s defense came up big forcing two Nebraska turnovers including Earl Little’s endzone interception early in the fourth quarter. But Nebraska and its bruising offensive line controlled the final quarter of play. Nebraska starting quarterback Tommie Frazier returned in the fourth quarter to lead the Huskers punishing rushing attack to two late touchdowns and the victory.

1994 Fiesta Bowl

Arizona 29, Miami 0

The No. 10-ranked Hurricanes fell victim to the 16th-ranked Arizona Wildcats, 29-0, in the 23rd annual IBM OS/2 Fiesta Bowl before a sellout crowd of 72,260 and an NBC-TV national television audience. The Wildcats used a strong ground attack and stifling defense to hand the ‘Canes their first shutout since 1979, a span of 168 games. It was also the first time that Miami had been shutout in a bowl game since a 26-0 loss to Bucknell in the 1935 Orange Bowl. The only bright spot for the ‘Canes was Chris T. Jones, who had six receptions for 98 yards. The loss dropped Miami out of the Associated Press top ten for the first time since September of 1985, as the ‘Canes finished 15th in both the AP and CNN/USA Today polls.

1993 Sugar Bowl

Alabama 34, Miami 13

The No. 1-ranked Hurricanes’ dream of a second consecutive national championship and an unprecedented fifth title in ten years ended with a 34-13 defeat at the hands of No. 2-ranked Alabama. The game marked the first time that the No. 1 and 2 teams met in a bowl game since the 1987 season when No. 2 Miami defeated No. 1 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl and was Miami’s 10th consecutive New Years’ Day bowl game. An ABC national-television audience (the most watched college football game of the year with a 18.2 Nielsen rating) and a raucous Louisiana Superdome crowd of 76,789 saw the two teams with the longest current win streaks (Miami 29, Alabama 22) in college football. Gino Torretta set a UM bowl record with 56 pass attempts. He threw for 278 yards on 24-of-56 passing, but had no TDs and three interceptions. The lone bright spot in the second half for Miami was Kevin Williams’ USF&G Sugar Bowl record 78-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The loss dropped the Hurricanes to a final No. 3 ranking, the seventh straight year Miami finished in the Top 3 nationally.

1992 Orange Bowl

Miami 22, Nebraska 0

The No. 1-ranked Hurricanes capped a 12-0 season and claimed their fourth national championship in nine years by dominating the Big Eight Champion Nebraska Cornhuskers 22-0 in front of an Orange Bowl crowd of 77,747 and an NBC national television audience. Miami used the running of freshman Larry Jones who responded with a career-high 144 yards rushing, which earned him MVP honors and a dominating defense to roll to victory. Miami played with the knowledge that earlier that day the No. 2-ranked Washington Huskies had soundly defeated the Michigan Wolverines in the Rose Bowl, and would ultimately claim a co-national championship with the Hurricanes. The Miami defense held Nebraska to a single yard of offense in the first quarter and 62 total in the first half en route to its second shutout of the year, and the first suffered by a Nebraska team since 1973. For the game the UM defense recorded two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and five sacks, four by sophomore Rusty Medearis.

1991 Cotton Bowl

Miami 46, Texas 3

The No. 4-ranked Hurricanes continued their recent New Year’s Day success, winning the team’s fourth consecutive bowl game in dominating fashion over No. 3-ranked Texas, 46-3, for the most lopsided final score in Cotton Bowl history. The Hurricane defense held Texas to minus four yards total offense in the first stanza and one turnover. Craig Erickson, who was the game’s most outstanding offensive player, completed 17 of 26 passes for 272 yards and set a new Cotton Bowl record with four touchdowns. Russell Maryland, the 1991 Cotton Bowl Classic most outstanding defensive player, tallied nine tackles and three sacks. Miami’s defense established a new Mobil Cotton Bowl record with nine total quarterback sacks and Carlos Huerta’s 50-yard field goal tied a Mobil Cotton Bowl record (Gregg Gantt, Alabama, 1973). The Hurricanes concluded the season with a No. 3 ranking in the Associated Press; their 88th straight week in the Top 10.

1990 Sugar Bowl

Miami 33, Alabama 25

Miami solidified its title of “The Team of the 80’s” with its third national championship in seven years by handing Alabama a 33-25 defeat in the USF&G Sugar Bowl. Miami closing out its scoring by capitalizing on a Charles Pharms interception with an 88-yard drive that Craig Erickson finished off by finding tight end Randy Bethel open for a 12-yard touchdown reception.

1989 Orange Bowl

Miami 23, Nebraska 3

For the first time in four years, Miami was not playing for the national title in its New Year’s bowl game. Moments before kickoff of the 55th annual Orange Bowl Classic vs. Nebraska, the ‘Canes learned that the No. 1 ranked team, Notre Dame, had defeated West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl. As the nation tuned in to the Orange Bowl, many felt the University of Miami would come out flat, knowing that all possibility of a repeat national title had been lost. The Hurricanes showed their true mettle, dominating the Big Eight Champions on offense, defense, and special teams from the opening kickoff. The statistics backed up the scoreboard as the ‘Canes held a 212-29 advantage in total yards and an 11-2 edge in first downs.

1988 Orange Bowl

Miami 20, Oklahoma 14

For the second time in five years, the University of Miami Hurricanes were champions of the college football world. And, just as they had done in 1983, the ’87 ‘Canes knocked off the nation’s No. 1 ranked team in the New Year’s Day Orange Bowl Classic. The second-ranked Hurricanes capped the school’s second straight undefeated regular season with a 20-14 victory over Oklahoma. Sophomore quarterback Steve Walsh hit on 18 of 30 passing attempts for 209 yards and two touchdowns. Senior fullback Melvin Bratton nearly broke a UM single game receiving mark by hauling in nine catches for 102 yards before leaving the game with a knee injury. Bernard Clark stepped into the spotlight at middle linebacker, and walked away with the game’s MVP award after recording 12 unassisted tackles and 14 overall stops, while the entire defensive unit limited the Sooners to just 255 yards in total offense.

1987 Fiesta Bowl

Penn State 14, Miami 10

A national television audience watched the “Battle For No. 1” one day following the completion of all other bowl games. While the nation nervously watched, the Hurricanes found themselves 77-yards from the national championship and with just over three minutes remaining to play. Vinny Testaverde went to work and engineered a thrilling drive that included a 31-yard strike to Brian Blades on a fourth-and-six play from Miami’s own 27. The pass to Blades was the first of six consecutive completions by Testaverde that brought Miami to Penn State’s 6-yard line. However, with 18 seconds remaining, Pete Giftopoulos ended UM’s drive for the national title by intercepting a Testaverde pass at the goal line. The Hurricanes finished with 445 total yards and 22 first downs while holding Penn State to Fiesta Bowl records of 162 yards and just eight first downs, but seven turnovers tripped the ‘Canes on the road to the national title and Miami settled for a final ranking of second in both AP and UPI polls.

1986 Sugar Bowl

Tennessee 35, Miami 7

Amid the revelry of New Orleans’ Bourbon Street, the 1986 Sugar Bowl had it all. Miami, with one of the most dominate offenses in college football was shooting for the national championship. The Volunteers, a much underrated team, who rolled into New Orleans with a hard fought Southeastern Conference title, were looking for the national respect they felt had eluded them. The week prior to the game, UM Coach Jimmy Johnson constantly stressed that the Volunteers were better than their No. 8 national ranking. Much to his chagrin, Johnson proved to be a prophet, as Tennessee used a solid offense and an opportunistic defense to down the second-ranked Hurricanes, 35-7. Despite constant pressure, Vinny Testaverde threw for 217 yards on 20 of 36 passing. Daryl Dickey, who earned MVP honors, finished with 131 yards on 15 of 25 passes.

1985 Fiesta Bowl

UCLA 39, Miami 37

In a thrilling conclusion to a year full of last-minute excitement, the Hurricanes were dealt a narrow 39-37 defeat by the UCLA Bruins before 60,310 fans at the Fiesta Bowl XIV. The lead changed hands seven times before the Bruins John Lee kicked the deciding field goal with :51 remaining. With time running out, Melvin Bratton put the ‘Canes on top with a three-yard TD reception from Kosar with just 2:58 remaining. Bratton’s second tally of the game gave Miami a 37-36 advantage. The Bruins began their final drive of the afternoon at their own 32-yard line and in eight plays moved to the Hurricane seven, setting up Lee’s heroics. His 22-yard field goal gave the PAC 10 team the decisive lead. Miami’s hopes of winning a second straight New Year’s Day bowl game vanished when Bernie Kosar lost a fumble following a sack at the Hurricane 31-yard line with less than a minute to play.

1984 Orange Bowl

Miami 31, Nebraska 30

In what many called the most exciting game ever played in college football, UM ended a storybook season climb to the national championship by dealing Nebraska a thrilling 31-30 defeat. UM quarterback Bernie Kosar earned MVP honors by throwing for a record 300 yards. Linebacker Jack Fernandez was named Defensive MVP as the Hurricane contingent contained a Nebraska offense that had set numerous NCAA records. An NBC-TV audience were shocked when the first quarter ended with the Hurricanes ahead of the country’s No. 1-ranked team by a 17-0 score. Jeff Smith set Nebraska up to claim the National Championship with a 24-yard touchdown run to pull the Huskers to within one. In a decision that most would hail as the true method of establishing a national champion, Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne lined up his team for a two-point conversion attempt. The ball was placed on the left hash mark. Turner Gill rolled right and under pressure from a tremendous rush lofted a pass toward Smith but UM strong safety Ken Calhoun batted the pass away to seal the Miami win.

1981 Peach Bowl

Miami 20, Virginia Tech 10

Atlanta’s steel blue sky provided the backdrop as the Hurricanes embarked on their first post-season bowl appearance since 1967, squaring off against Virginia Tech on a clear Georgia day at Fulton County Stadium. Performing on national television (CBS), Howard Schnellenberger’s troops set the pace early with two long scoring drives that proved to be the winning margin. UM took the opening kickoff 68 yards to paydirt, with QB Jim Kelly hitting Larry Brodsky on a 15-yard strike to culminate the nine-play drive. On Miami’s third possession Kelly connected through the air on three occasions to spark a 10-play, 99-yard drive. Chris Hobbs did the honors with a 12-yard scamper up the middle to cap what CBS commentator Hank Stram described as “a textbook-perfect scoring drive.” Danny Miller’s second PAT of the afternoon made the score 14-0. The Hokies closed the gap to 14-10 early in the second half, but two field goals by Miller put the game beyond Tech’s grasp and assured Miami of its first bowl victory since 1966. Kelly was selected the game’s outstanding player on offense, while UM middle guard Jim Burt was named defensive MVP.

1967 Bluebonnet Bowl

Colorado 31, Miami 21

In a wild scoring spectacle Colorado finally won 31-21 after the lead had changed hands five times at Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas. In the first quarter, Colorado’s Larry Plantz tallied from seven yards out while Miami came back to deadlock the count on Joe Mira’s score from the two. UM moved ahead moments later as Jimmy Dye stole a pass from Dan Kelly and romped 77 yards. A 31-yard field goal by John Farler just before half-time, followed by an 80-yard TD march with the second half kickoff, sent the Buffaloes roaring to the front again, 17-14. Miami regained the lead 21-17 in the final period on an 85-yard drive sparked by Bill Miller’s four pass completions to Jerry Daanen, the last one for nine yards and the score. With six minutes remaining, Colorado surged ahead for the third time on a dazzling 38-yard gallop by Bob Anderson. UM was coached by Charlie Tate.

1966 Liberty Bowl

Miami 14, Virginia Tech 7

Playing in frigid 36-degree weather in Memphis, Miami found itself on the trailing end of a 7-0 score at half-time, but in the end proved to be too powerful for Virginia Tech. Tech’s only score of the game came early in the opening quarter after Jim Richard blocked Bobby Stokes’ punt deep in UM territory. It took the Virginians five plays to go 21 yards for the TD. Miami tied the game in the third period on a 53-yard drive, highlighted by Bill Miller’s passing and the running of Joe Mira. Miller threw seven yards to Mira and Ray Harris made good on his conversion try. A 7-yard march in the final quarter brought UM its winning TD. On the drive, Miller completed three air bombs to end Jimmy Cox (12,11, and 38 yards), and Doug McGee barreled over from the one on fourth down with 8:05 left in the game. Miami’s potent defense was led by All-American Ted Hendricks.

1962 Gotham Bowl

Nebraska 36, Miami 34

This spectacle was played in freezing 17-degree weather in ice-plagued, snow-banked Yankee Stadium. The brave souls who showed up will remember the offensive thriller – and All-American George Mira – for many years to come. The score see-sawed back and forth, changing hands six times before Nebraska finally won 36-34. The Hurricanes rolled up an amazing 502 yards rushing and passing to Nebraska’s 296 – and had a margin of 34-12 in first downs. Scoring found Nebraska drawing first blood, but Miami tied it up 6-6 and then took command 12-6. Before the half ended, Nebraska led 13-12 and Miami 20-13 (score was tied at 20-20 at half). In the final half Miami led 27-20, and Nebraska 28-27, 36-27, and 36-34. Mira had one of his finest hours in this Gotham Bowl struggle, shattering his own all-time UM passing record with 24 completions for 321 yards and two touchdowns. This performance won him the game’s MVP award. Scribes hailed him as the greatest passer to appear in Yankee Stadium since Johnny Lujack came to town with Notre Dame in the middle ‘40’s.

Syracuse 15, Miami 14

Miami broke away to a 14-0 lead at half-time, but Syracuse, led by Heisman winner Ernie Davis, came back in the game’s waning minutes to pull it out of the fire, 15-14. Jim Vollenweider romped 12 yards through the entire Syracuse team for Miami’s first TD in the opening quarter, while the other came on a 60-yard punt return by Nick Spinelli seconds before the half ended. Davis put Syracuse back into the running with a score in the third period. Dave Sarette passed to Easterly for a two point conversion. Syracuse’s other tally came on a final period pass, Sarette to Easterly. The winning point was kicked by Ken Erickson.

1952 Gator Bowl

Miami 14, Clemson 0

When injuries cost Miami its backfield ace Frank Smith, and several linemen prior to the game, Clemson was rated a top-heavy favorite. Coach Andy Gustafson even had to start freshmen. One of them was an end, Frank McDonald, who caught a pass to set up a touchdown. Flankman Ed Lutes caught a 46-yard aerial to set up another. Harry Mallios made both TD’s, the first on a pitchout from Jack Hackett in the opening quarter and the other on a short leap over the goal in the second period. Elmer Tremont converted after both scores and contributed much towards frustrating Clemson’s scoring ambitions with his punting. He booted nine times for an average of 44.5 yards per kick. Miami’s defensive standout was Jim Dooley, the MVP. He intercepted four passes to set a Gator Bowl record.

After being run over in the first half (Clemson led 9 to 1 in first downs, 158 yards to 39 in total offense, and by a 13-0 score), Miami caught fire in the third period and moved ahead 14-13. Harry Mallios, taking a pitchout from Bob Schneidenbach, sailed around right end five yards for Miami’s first TD. Frank Smith tallied the other on a 14-yard pass thrown by Jack Hackett. Gordon Watson kicked both extra points. Apparently heading for another score, Miami drew three successive 15-yard penalties. One nullified a score, the others nullified good runs. Still another penalty sent Miami back to its one yard line, where a safety (Sterling Smith tackled Frank Smith behind the goal line) gave Clemson a 15-14 victory. The Orange Bowl record for the longest completed pass through the air was equaled when Bob Schneidenbach tossed to end Ed Lutes for 78 yards.

1946 Orange Bowl

Miami 13, Holy Cross 6

This was a tense, thrilling struggle with each club scoring once in the opening half and missing the extra point. Joe Krull tallied for UM on a reverse and Walter Brennan scored for Holy Cross on a pass from Stan Kozlowski. Seconds before the gun sounded ending the entire game, the Crusaders came up with a long, desperation pass attempt thrown by halfback Gene DeFilippo. 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. Al juggled the pigskin momentarily, and then the former Miami Edison High track star was on his way down the sideline. There wasn’t a man in the Crusader squad who could have caught Hudson on that 89-yard sprint to fame. The game was over as galloping Al shot past the 35-yard line, but he kept on going. When Harry Ghaul kicked the extra point is was anticlimactic, but the final count read UM 13, Holy Cross 6.

This New Year’s game was moved to a wooden stadium on the site of the present Orange Bowl, and the Miami-Bucknell battle inaugurated what is today known as the Orange Bowl Classic. Bucknell, the champion of the smaller eastern colleges, had a sensational backfield and Miami never had a chance. UM failed to complete a single pass in ten tries. Bucknell won 26-0. UM was coached by Tom McCann.

Duquesne 33, Miami 7

The Hurricanes met a Duquesne 11 that rated among the nation’s best and was coached by Elmer Layden, one of the famed Four Horsemen of Notre Dame. The Pittsburghers used three teams, and Miami, which scarcely had any reserve talent, was worn down and Duquesne ran wild in the fourth quarter to win 33-7. (Miami was only down 12-7 when Duquesne started its final surge.) George Reichgott scored UM’s lone TD early in the fourth on a pass from Johnny Ott, and Pete Petrowski booted the extra point. The battle was waged at Moore Park.

1933 Palm Festival

Miami 7, Manhattan 0

In this first Festival of the Palms Classic, Miami was matched against Coach Chick Meehan’s colorful military stepping Manhattan College team of New York City, which was rated best of the eastern small colleges and was favored to win by a wide margin. Bob Zuppke, then Illinois coach, offered to help his ex-pupil Tom McCann prep the Hurricanes and did a masterful job. A fired-up defense stopped the favored New Yorkers, once holding three inches from a goal, while the Hurricanes cut loose on a series of wild spread formations to earn a thrilling 7-0 victory. This game was actually the forerunner to the Orange Bowl Classic. A crowd 3,500 observed the upset.
