The 1994 Aloha Bowl was a college football bowl game played December 25, 1995 in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was part of the 1994 NCAA Division I-A football season. It featured the Kansas State Wildcats, and the Boston College Eagles.

Boston College sacked K-State quarterback Chad May eight times, including a four-hit effort by end Mike Mamula, who was named the game's most valuable player.

Kansas State rushed for just 30 yards, and threw for 94 more, for a total of 124 yards.

K-State's only score came with eight seconds left in the first quarter when Joe Gordon crashed the middle of BC's line and blocked a punt by Jeff Beckley. Chris Sublette recovered the ball on the first hop in the end zone and the game was tied, 7-7.

However, BC would answer with its own end zone patrol later in the half when Mamula applied the biggest of his hits on May for a safety with 2:37 left.

Still, a defense that featured punter Eric Hardy, Gordon, and a pair of 10-tackle performances from Chuck Marlowe and Mario Smith kept the Wildcats within striking distance until the end.

BC tacked on a 35-yard field goal by David Gordon[disambiguation needed] with 1:18 remaining in the game to seal the win for the Eagles.[1]
