This was another first for the Holiday Bowl - its first National Championship game. BYU finished 13-0 and won the National Championship by defeating Michigan.

Cougar quarterback Robbie Bosco passed for 343 yards and two touchdowns despite playing most of the game on a severely injured ankle. Bosco's 13-yard touchdown pass to Kelly Smith was the game-winner with 1:23 remaining.

The BYU defense, perhaps wiser from a thrashing by Ohio State two years before, gained revenge against the Big Ten. The Cougars limited the Michigan offense to 120 rushing yards on 49 attempts.
