January 1, 1986 – Orange Bowl Stadium
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
 
Lasher Kicks Sooners to Title
Oklahoma scored 16 second-quarter points and shut out top-ranked Penn State in the second half as it won its third national championship in the Orange Bowl.
 
After giving up seven on the Lions' opening drive on a short Tim Manoa run, the Sooner defense shut down Penn State.
 
Tim Lashar kicked the first of his four field goals early in the second quarter to make it 7-3 and swung the momentum to Oklahoma. Jamelle Holieway, who would engineer six scoring drives, found All-American tight end Keith Jackson for a 71-yard touchdown pass on a third-and-24 play.
 
Lashar added a pair of field goals before State's Massimo Manca kicked a 27-yarder with one second left in the half that made it 16-10.
 
The Sooners' top-ranked defense took over in the second half and fullback Lydell Carr scampered 61 yards to make the final 25-10. Oklahoma’s defense was lead Brian Bosworth (13 solo tackles) and picked off four passes.
