Vrbo Citrus Bowl 75th Anniversary Spotlight

We’re throwing it all the way back to Dec.18, 1982 for the 37th Tangerine Bowl the last year the game went by the name before changing to the Florida Citrus Bowl! In front of a sellout crowd of 51,296, Auburn took home its first bowl victory since 1974 with freshman running back Bo Jackson leading the way with two rushing touchdowns.

Quarterback Randy Campbell, who completed 10-of-16 passes for 177 yards, earned MVP honors while Boston College sophomore quarterback Doug Flutie passed for 299 yards and two touchdowns to earn Offensive Player of the Game honors.

With the 75th anniversary of the inaugural Tangerine Bowl coming up this season, we want to hear from YOU! Click here and share with us your favorite memory from past games!
