The 1981 Peach Bowl was the first post appearance for Miami since 1967 and their inaugural bowl game under Howard Schnellenberger. Jim Kelly and Jim Burt swept the offensive and defensive game MVPs for Miami. Miami took a 14-0 first-half lead and held off Virginia Tech late winning 20-10.
Miami did not play in the Peach Bowl again until 2004. Behind a blocked field goal returned for a TD by Devin Hester and a punt return score from Roscoe Parrish, Miami defeated Florida 27-10 despite getting outgained 406-277. Hester added an interception and was named the MVP.
Tied at three after one quarter, LSU outscored Miami 17-0 in the second quarter, 14-0 in the third, and added a field goal in the fourth for a 40-3 win and the Hurricanes worst bowl loss in the 2005 Peach Bowl. LSU dominated the game as thoroughly as the score indicated with a 468-153 total yardage advantage.
Wisconsin nearly equaled the LSU win over Miami in 2005 with a 35-3 win over the Hurricanes in the 2018 Pinstripe Bowl. Jonathan Taylor scorched Miami for 205 rushing yards. Wisconsin finished with 333 yards on the ground as a team. Miami QBs combined to go 6-17 for 48 yards with four interceptions.
