Oregon State won 3–0, the-lowest scoring bowl game since a 0-0 tie between Air Force and TCU in the 1959 Cotton Bowl and the lowest-scoring Sun Bowl since a 0–0 tie between Arizona State and The Catholic University of America on January 1, 1940. It was the first shutout loss for the Panthers since 1996. This game, however, was special because the only points were scored on a field goal kicked off of a botched hold.
This game marked the 41st consecutive telecast by CBS Sports. No other network and bowl game has been paired for a longer period of time.
