Nebraska, Tennessee Seeing Orange

December 7, 1997

Unable to match the top two teams in the nation, the Orange Bowl on Sunday went for the next best game _ No. 2 Nebraska vs. No. 3 Tennessee and Heisman Trophy hopeful Peyton Manning.

With No. 1 Michigan playing No. 8 Washington State in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 , the Orange Bowl could turn into a national title game only if the Cougars (10-1) upset the Wolverines (11-0).

The Orange is this year’s top bowl alliance game and went for the highest-ranked teams available.

The Sugar Bowl will match No. 4 Florida State (10-1) against No. 9 Ohio State (10-2), while the Fiesta went for No. 10 Kansas State (10-1) vs. No. 14 Syracuse (9-3).
