The 1990 SeaWorld Holiday Bowl was a post-season college football bowl game between the Texas A&M Aggies and BYU Cougars on December 29, 1990 at Jack Murphy Stadium, now known as Qualcomm Stadium, in San Diego. The game was part of the 1990 NCAA Division I-A football season and was the final game of the season for both teams. Texas A&M defeated BYU 65–14.[2][3]

The game featured BYU's Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer, and marked the last time for more than 20 years that the season's Heisman winner would appear in a bowl before New Year's Day. This would not happen again until the 2011 Alamo Bowl, featuring Baylor's Robert Griffin III.[4]
