Bowl Alliance National Championship Game
 < 1997 1999 (BCS Era)

The 1998 Orange Bowl was played on January 2, 1998 and served as the Bowl Alliance's designated national championship game for the 1997 season. This 64th edition of the Orange Bowl featured the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Tennessee Volunteers. Tennessee came into the game with an 11–1 record and #3 AP ranking, whereas Nebraska came into the game with a 12–0 and #2 AP ranking. Notably the #1 ranked Michigan Wolverines were not a participant, as the Big Ten champion was still obligated to appear in the Rose Bowl.

Game summary[edit]

Nebraska opened up a 7–0 lead after the first quarter and led 14–3 lead at halftime. Nebraska put the game away in the opening drive of the third quarter via their power running game, driving the opening kickoff for a touchdown to push the lead to 21–3. Nebraska's lead jumped to 28–3 after a Scott Frost touchdown. Quarterback Peyton Manning fired a 5-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Peerless Price to cut the lead to 28–9. The ensuing two-point conversion failed and the lead remained at 19. Nebraska then drove 59 yards in 3 plays, before running back Ahman Green scored on a 22-yard touchdown run to move the lead up to 35–9 going into the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Scott Frost added a 9-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to put the game away for Nebraska. Tennessee's back-up quarterback Tee Martin threw a touchdown pass in the final minutes, and the ensuing two-point conversion was successful, making the final margin 42–17.

Nebraska's Green was named game MVP after rushing for an Orange Bowl record 201 yards and two touchdowns. In his final game at Tennessee, Manning completed 21-of-31 attempts for only 131 yards passing. The game was also the last for Nebraska head coach Tom Osborne, who had been at the helm since 1973.

Aftermath[edit]

Nebraska won a share of the national championship, capturing the top spot in the Coaches Poll and receiving the AFCA National Championship Trophy. The Cornhuskers finished the season ranked No. 2 in the AP Poll, behind the also-undefeated Rose Bowl champion Michigan Wolverines.

Tennessee finished the 1997 season 11–2. This was the last loss by the Volunteers until September 18, 1999.

The two teams met exactly two years later, on January 2, 2000, in the Fiesta Bowl.

The next season the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was formed, allowing the Big Ten Conference and Pacific-10 Conference champions to participate in bowl games other than the Rose Bowl.
