California exploded for 17 points in the second quarter and defeated Iowa 37-3 in the inaugural Alamo Bowl. The Golden Bears built a 9-0 lead on three field goals by Doug Brien, then expanded their advantage to 16-0 on a six-yard touchdown pass from Dave Barr to Mike Caldwell. Iowa's deficit grew when Jerrott Willard picked off a Paul Burmeister pass and ran it 61 yards for a score just before halftime. Iowa's only points in the second half came on a 42-yard field goal by Brion Hurley in the third quarter. Iowa finished the season 6-6. A bright spot was punter Nick Gallery, who averaged 43 yards on eight punts. Larry Blue received the Alamo Bowl Sportsmanship Award.
