The 1995 Orange Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1995 between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Miami Hurricanes. It was the 61st edition of the Orange Bowl and the national championship game for the 1994 season. Nebraska came into the game with a 12-0 record and no. 1 AP ranking, whereas Miami was 10-1 and ranked no. 3. The game was a rematch of the historic 1984 Orange Bowl.

Although the Bowl Coalition’s National Championship Game, it was a match-up of the no. 1 and no. 3 teams in the country, as no. 2 Penn State was obligated to play in the Rose Bowl as the Big Ten champion. The Nittany Lions, like the Cornhuskers, were undefeated, which led to much controversy after both teams emerged from their bowl games victorious but only Nebraska was crowned national champions. It was not until the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was formed in 1998 that the Big Ten and Pac-10 would allow their champions to compete in national championship games outside the Rose Bowl.
