The 1981 Peach Bowl was a post-season college football bowl game between the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Florida Gators. The game took place on December 31, 1981, resulting in a West Virginia win over Florida 26-6.[1] The offensive MVP was Mickey Walczack of West Virginia and the defensive MVP was West Virginia's Don Stemple.[2]

Florida coach Charlie Pell was so disappointed by his team's performance that he burned the game film and buried it in the Gators' practice field.[3]
