The 2001 Jeep Seattle Bowl was the first edition to be named as such of the college football bowl game (previously known as the Oahu Bowl), and was to be played at Qwest Field in Seattle, Washington. The game pitted the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets from the ACC and the Stanford Cardinal from the Pac-10. The game was the final competition of the 2001 football season for each team and resulted in a 24–14 Georgia Tech upset victory over the 11th ranked Stanford team.

The game was played at Safeco Field because Qwest Field had not yet been completed.


Georgia Tech coach Mac McWhorter was coaching on an interim basis (his only game as head coach) after coach George O'Leary left for the head coaching job at Notre Dame (which he was not able to keep due to a controversy). Coincidentally, Stanford coach Tyrone Willingham did become the next coach at Notre Dame, and thus this was his last game as head coach of Stanford.
