The 1998 Orange Bowl was played on January 2, 1998 and served as the Bowl Alliance’s designated national championship game for the 1997 season. This 64th edition of the Orange Bowl featured the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Tennessee Volunteers. Tennessee came into the game with an 11–1 record and #3 AP ranking, whereas Nebraska came into the game with a 12–0 and #2 AP ranking. Notably the #1 ranked Michigan Wolverines were not a participant, as the Big Ten champion was still obligated to appear in the Rose Bowl.
