The seventh ranked Miami Hurricanes defeated the #1 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish by the score of 27-10 in front of an electric Orange Bowl sellout crowd of 81,634, which at that time, was a stadium record.
The dagger in the heart of the Irish was a 22-play touchdown drive that consumed 10 minutes and 47 seconds off the clock to start the 2nd half and put the Canes up by 14 points, 24-10.
The Miami defense held the Notre Dame offense in check, holding them to under 250 total yards and intercepting 2 passes. To watch a 7-minute highlight video of this game, click the link below:
Miami would move to #2 in the polls and go on to beat Alabama 33-25 in the Sugar Bowl and claim its 3rd National Championship, because the Irish beat #1 Colorado in the Orange Bowl!
