Fiesta Bowl[edit]

Prior to Oregon (10-1, 7-1 Pac-10) being placed in the 2002 Fiesta Bowl against #3 Colorado, many people believed that Oregon, now at #2, was going to face off against #1 Miami, however, the BCS had named Nebraska as the contender, despite Nebraska not playing in the Big 12 championship game. However, these events transpired since Nebraska's first loss that year to Colorado: #2 Florida lost to Tennessee, the Colorado Buffaloes went on to win the Big 12 Championship Game over #3 Texas, and in the SEC Championship Game, #2 Tennessee was stunned by LSU. This left Miami as the undefeated and undisputed No. 1 team in the country but a host of other teams vying for #2. Oregon played against the 2-loss Colorado Buffaloes on January 1, 2002. Colorado scored first, with a 1-yard touchdown to take the lead, 7-0. Oregon would score after them, tying the game 7-7. Oregon would score on their next 5 possessions, including a 49-yard touchdown run by Maurice Morris, in which Morris sat down on a defender after a failed attempt at a tackle and continued to run, and an 80-yard Joey Harrington pass to WR Samie Parker. Colorado would score twice in the 4th quarter, nailing a field goal and a touchdown with a failed PAT, but Oregon would prevail 38-16, earning their first Fiesta Bowl win under HC Mike Bellotti. This game also marked Bellotti's first 11-win season.
