Mike Gundy, Quarterback
Oklahoma State, 1988.
Gundy completed 20 of 24 passes for an amazing completion percentage of 83.3%, which is still a game record, in a 62-14 win over Wyoming in 1988. He threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 41 yards.
Raymont Harris, Running Back
Ohio State, 1993.
Harris had a dominating performance for Ohio State in 1993 as the Buckeyes defeated BYU 28-21. He rushed for 235 yards on 39 carries, both Holiday Bowl records. He rushed for three of OSU’s four touchdowns and never lost yardage on his 39 carries.
Les Land, Executive Director
Land was a key figure in the early planning stages of the game, long before it was certified by the NCAA early in 1978. His organizational skills were instrumental in laying the game’s foundation in a very short period of time. When the game became official, Land agreed to serve as the first executive director, taking a leave of absence from his business and serving without pay.
