The 62nd Orange Bowl was a post-season college football bowl game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on January 1, 1996, at The Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. Florida State defeated Notre Dame, 31-26. The game was part of the 1995-1996 Bowl Alliance of the 1995 NCAA Division I-A football season and represented the concluding game of the season for both teams. The Orange Bowl was first played in 1935, and the 1996 game represented the 62nd edition of the Orange Bowl. The contest was televised in the United States on CBS.

This would be the last Orange Bowl played in the Orange Bowl Stadium until 1999, as the next three were played in Pro Player Stadium, before moving the game there permanently after the 1999 season
