Memory Lane: 1986 Rose Bowl Highlights Between Iowa and UCLA

I have been looking for highlights of past UCLA big bowl games on YouTube. Specifically, really wanted to see highlights of the Rose Bowls between UCLA and Michigan and UCLA and Illinois from back in the 80s. Well haven't found anything yet. But I did stumble into the highlights from the 1986 Rose Bowl against Iowa.

Iowa came in as the favorites in that game with a 10-1 record (as they were ranked number 1 for number of weeks that season with one loss coming against tOSU). Bruins came in with a record of 8-2-1 (with their losses coming against Washington, Southern Cal, and tie with eventual Sugar Bowl/SEC champion Tennessee). So everyone thought Iowa was going to blow up the Bruins. Didn't really work out that way. Here are the highlights from a turnover riddled first half when Bruins took the lead thanks to freshman RB Eric Ball:

And the second when Bruins sealed the deal:

It's a matter of time we get back to those days. I have to say I miss those road jerseys. It will be cool when we bring those old school colors backs this season. Thanks to gohawkeyes529  for putting up those videos.

Similarly, if anyone finds them, wouldn't mind seeing highlights from the 1998 Cotton Bowl (against Texas A&M), the Fiesta Bowl win in 1985 against defending national champions Miami. It's always fun to take this kind of trip through the memory lane.

GO BRUINS.
