Tempe, Ariz. | Jan. 2, 1987

The 1986 Miami team enjoyed its roguish reputation. But the Hurricanes didn't match their mouth with their play against Penn State in the Fiesta Bowl. The Canes led the Nittany Lions 445-162 in total offense. But Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde threw five picks, the last to linebacker Pete Giftopoulos near the Penn State goal line with :18 to play. Joe Paterno's Nittany Lions won the game, 14-10, and the national championship.
