High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The 1966 Liberty Bowl
was a post-season American college football bowl game between the
Virginia Tech Hokies and the Miami Hurricanes at Memphis Memorial
Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee on December 10, 1966. The game was
the final contest of the 1966 college football season for both
teams, and ended in a 14-7 victory for the Miami Hurricanes. A
then-record 39,101 tickets were sold for the game, but due to
36-degree temperatures at game time, only 25,012 spectators
attended. The game marked just the second time that Virginia Tech
had played in a bowl game since the creation of the team in 1892.
The game also marked the second time in each school's history that
the two teams had faced each other. The previous meeting, held in
1953, ended in a 26-0 shutout victory for the Hurricanes. Current
Virginia Tech head football coach and then-player Frank Beamer
participated in the game as a backup cornerback for the Hokies.
