 <  1988   1990

The 1989 Orange Bowl was a college football bowl game that was played on January 2 in Miami, Florida. The 55th edition of the game was the first that had an official corporate sponsor, Federal Express (now FedEx, who continued to sponsor the bowl until 2010). The second-ranked Miami Hurricanes defeated the sixth-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers of the Big Eight Conference.[2][3][4]

It was a rematch of the 1984 game, in which Miami had won its first national championship. Despite the high rankings of both teams,[5] the game was not determining of the national title since top-ranked and undefeated Notre Dame (which had defeated Miami by a point earlier in the season) convincingly won the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona earlier in the day.[6]

Game summary

The rematch did not turn out to be as close as the 1984 game, and Miami led 20–0 at halftime. Nebraska finally scored with a 50-yard field goal in the third quarter, but Miami responded with its own in the fourth.[2] Hurricanes quarterback Steve Walsh also set a new Orange Bowl record with 44 attempted passes, with 23 completions.

Miami retained its #2 ranking in the final AP poll and Nebraska fell to tenth.[7]

The game was head coach Jimmy Johnson's last with Miami, as he left in February to become the second head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL.[9]

Nebraska and Miami have since faced off again in the post-season three times, twice in the Orange Bowl in 1992 and 1995, and once in the Rose Bowl in 2002.
