The 1995 Sun Bowl featured the Iowa Hawkeyes, and the Washington Huskies.

Iowa scored first, after running back Sedrick Shaw rushed for a 58-yard touchdown, and a 7-0 Iowa lead. Kicker Brian Hurley added a 49-yard field goal, to make it 10-0 after one quarter of play.

In the second quarter, Iowa got a safety, increasing its lead to 12-0. Zach Bromert added a pair of 33 and 34-yard field goals, to push the lead to 18-0. Brian Hurley added a 47-yard field goal before half time to make the score 21-0 at the end of the half.

In the third quarter, Brian Hurley kicked a 50-yard field goal, to make the score 24-0. Washington finally got on the board after quarterback Shane Fortney threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jerome Pathon to make it 24-6. Iowa's Michael Burger scored on a pair of touchdown runs to increase the lead to 40-6. Washington scored twice on touchdown passes by back-up quarterback Damon Huard to make the score more respectable.

After two straight bowl losses to Washington (the 1982 Rose Bowl and the 1991 Rose Bowl ) Iowa finally got a measure of revenge with the win.
