For the second straight season, the National Championship is split. Miami defeats Nebraska 22-0 and claims the AP National Championship with a 12-0 season. Meanwhile, Washington also finishes 12-0 and beats Michigan 34-14 in the Rose Bowl, and ends the season ranked #1 in the Coaches Poll. There was a call for the two unbeaten teams to meet in a bowl game, but as Pac-10 Champions, Washington was locked into the Rose Bowl, where they beat #3 Michigan. The Hurricanes defeated #11 Nebraska in the Orange Bowl to win their fourth National Championship in eight years. For the Huskies, it was their first National Championship from a significant poll.
