Best Answer

Prior to the 2006 season, the BCS Championship Game was played as either the Cotton Bowl, Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, or Orange Bowl instead of its own separate game. The 2002 Rose Bowl was designated as the BCS Championship Game for the 2001 season, therefore, the top two ranked teams in the nation were slotted to play regardless of whether they came from the Big 10 or PAC 10. Nebraska lost to Miami, 37-14, in the 2002 Rose Bowl.
