The 15th Holiday Bowl saw 24th-ranked Hawaii outscore the Fighting Illini, 27-17 giving the WAC its second Holiday Bowl win against the Big Ten in eight tries. In the first half, Illinois led the Rainbows 10-7 after Illinois quarterback Jason Verduzco threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to John Wright and Chris Richardson kicked a 19-yard field goal. Hawaii's explosive offense was held to only 87 first-half yards.

However, Hawaii gained control of the game for good at the 9:29 mark of the third quarter on running back Travis Sims' second touchdown, a 1-yard run. Sims ran for 113 yards. Hawaii quarterback Michael Carter rushed for 105 yards and threw for 115.
