This game marked the first and only appearance of two at-large teams in the bowl's history, but that was the only change in the script. There was still some doubt as to the winner until time ran out.

Arkansas capped an 11-point fourth quarter rally when placekicker Kendall Trainor kicked a 37-yard field goal with 23 seconds remaining. Then the Razorbacks watched Arizona State placekicker Kent Bostrom, who was 3-for-3 prior to that point, come up just short on a 59-yard attempt as time expired.
Offensive MVP: Bobby Joe Edmonds, Arkansas (7 rushes, 43 yards, 1 TD, 7 catches, 93 yards, 2 punt returns for 26 yards)
