Are there others?

. . .

1996 Fiesta Bowl - Nebraska 62, Florida 24 - and it wasn't that close

The 38-point margin of victory between a No. 1 and No. 2 team was the second-largest ever (Army 48, Notre Dame 0, 1945).
. . .
I think that's the game that convinced Steve Spurrier that he needed a new DC, so he hired Bob Stoops off the K-State staff.

I've only been to three bowl games.

1972 (season) Sugar Bowl
Oklahoma 14, Penn State 0.  OU had 3 turnovers inside the PSU 5-yard line, or it would have been worse.  The MVP was WR Tinker Owens, Steve's little brother.
OU had a stupid 20-14 loss at Colorado in the rain, or it might have been for the MNC.  Woulda/coulda/shoulda.
Two buddies and I got to the stadium early and had to wait around until the gates opened.  The PSU marching band arrived and acted like total jackasses as they passed by us.

2005 Liberty Bowl
Tulsa 31, Fresno State 24.  Beach Boys played at halftime.  We had tickets to all the TU festivities on Beale St. the night before the game and must have eaten something that had gone bad, as my wife and I were as sick as dogs 24 hours later.

2006 Armed Forces Bowl
Utah 25, Tulsa 13. I don't know if Steve Kragthorpe had already accepted the Louisville job and was checked out or not, but Tulsa played an apathetic game against a not-great Ute squad.  I just about came to blows with someone who was taking exception to me loudly complaining about Tulsa's poor play.  I had been to nearly every home game and figured I had a right to bitch.
This was when I found out that my buddy had Parkinson's disease.  He died of it this past May.

1994 Orange Bowl - FSU 18, Nebraska 16

Soph Tommie Frazier out played hypesman winner Charlie Ward.

17 point dog Huskers outplayed the Noles

Bobby Bowden's 1st national title

________________________________________

1995 Orange Bowl - Nebraska 24, Miami 17

the fullback trap got the great Cane defense in the 4th quarter

Tom Osborne's 1st national title
________________________________________

1996 Fiesta Bowl - Nebraska 62, Florida 24 - and it wasn't that close

The 38-point margin of victory between a No. 1 and No. 2 team was the second-largest ever (Army 48, Notre Dame 0, 1945).
_______________________________________

2002 Rose Bowl - Miami 37, Nebraska 14

hypesman winner Eric Crouch and the Huskers had no chance vs one of the most talented college teams of all-time

Larry Coker's only national title
I went to all of those games too.  Didn't cross your path I suspect with all that red.

I've also hit an Auburn v Wisconsin Music City,  Auburn held the lead late, seem to recall several UW self inflicted mistakes.  and a Arizona State v Kansas State Holiday Bowl, KSU impressive 2nd half comeback.  Lot of good talent in that game.  and the '90 Fiesta Bowl when PT Willis lit up Tyrone Byrd and co.  FSU 41 Nebraska 17. 

I really enjoyed the Tempe based Fiestas.  I go to Cactus League a lot so I know the Glendale stadium experience leaves a lot to be desired. Like going to a mall. 

Music City is fabulous.  The old OB was something else.  Such mystique, I was a teenager.

The 18 to 16 OB remains one of the best sporting events I've attended.  So exhausting.

1982 Peach Bowl, Iowa 28 - Tenn. 22 - Chuck Long was an incredible passer, Redshirt Freshman.
1985 Rose Bowl, UCLA 45 - Iowa 28 - Chuck Long put on an incredible passing performance, and Ronnie Harmon fumbled the game away.
1993 Alamo Bowl, Cal. 37 - Iowa 3 - Don't remember much about this nightmare.
1996 Alamo Bowl, Iowa 27 - Texas Tech 0 - Sat in 2nd row behind the Hawkeye bench. Chuck Long came into the hospitality room in the Hyatt where my brother-in-law and I were serving drinks and hors d'oeuvres for the San Antonio I-Club. We dropped my 7-year old nephew onto the field so he could meet the Hawkeye players following the game.
----------
Not quite a bowl, but it was the Eddie Robinson Classic on Aug 24, 2002, a neutral site season opening game at Arrowhead Stadium
2002 Eddie Robinson Classic, Florida State 38 - Iowa State 31 - This was the 1st year Bobby Bowden's teams started to go downhill. Iowa State had a great team, and the game ended with Iowa State stopped at the 1-yard line. I saw a lot of Iowa State alumni I knew in the parking lots, which surprised me. I didn't see any of my FSU acquaintances.

I thought Spurrier went to the Redskins after that season
perhaps that game put that move off a year or two
that was all the talk leading up to the bowl game - Spurrier was an offensive genius and had his pick of NFL jobs

a couple very fortunate Husker fans to have attended that list

agreed on the 18-16 loss.  Huskers were robbed

I've only been to the Pizza Bowl in Detroit two years ago. Mo Ibrahim had about 250 yards and the Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech spun into the catch fence in Paul Johnson's last game.

Only been to the Continental Tire Bowl in Charlotte in 2002.  UVA beat WVU 48-22.  It sucked. I had crappy seats, WVU got whipped, and UVA’s pep band did a Family Feud parody at halftime with every hillbilly stereotype you can imagine.

All and all, I should have stayed home.

I hate/despise bands that do stuff like that.  They break down our sense of sharing a common culture and exacerbate regional, religious, and class animosities.  And they are always from a school that at least perceives itself to be elite.  Stanford, Rice, UVA.  I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting.

hate is a very strong word

marching bands really are not needed in my opinion

I don't need to be entertained at halftime, I'm busy taking a leak, grabbing a drink or whatever I've neglected during the first half.

Is the Vegas bowl still a thing? Might check that out one of these years.

Yes, and I've meant to attend this bowl for quite awhile now. Was planning on making it my bowl trip with my Dad for this year. COVID not only nixed this year's edition, but Vegas has been dead since April. The gaming floors are about the only activity throughout the casinos. Everything else Vegas is a destination for – the pools, nightclubs, shows, and buffets – is shutdown.

The kicker for this year's bowl was the move from the middle-of-nowhere UNLV stadium, which has the feel of a dusty horse track, to the new Raiders stadium across I-15 from Mandalay Bay. Will try next season.

Spurrier went to the NFL after the 2001 season, 6 years after that.
He won the NC the following year, in 1996.
