Peach Bowl
 < 2004 (Dec) 2006

The 2005 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl featured two top 10-ranked teams. The ninth-ranked Miami Hurricanes battled the tenth-ranked LSU Tigers in this contest, the last to be played as the "Peach Bowl" until 2014.

Miami took an early 3–0 lead on a 21-yard field goal from Jon Peattie. LSU responded with Chris Jackson kicking a 37-yard field goal as the teams were tied at 3 after one quarter. In the second quarter, backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Craig Davis as LSU led 10–3. A 47-yard Chris Jackson field goal, and a 4-yard touchdown pass from Flynn to Joseph Addai gave the Tigers a 20–3 halftime lead.

In the third quarter, Addai scored on a 6-yard touchdown run extending the lead to 27–3. Jacob Hester's one-yard touchdown run gave the Tigers a 34–3 lead. In the fourth quarter, Mario Stevenson and Chris Jackson kicked field goals to give the Tigers the 40–3 win.
