The East squad edged the West 14-13 in the Japan Bowl as BYU's Ty Detmer scored the West's only touchdown with a 4-yard scramble, capping an 89-yard third-quarter drive in which his passing and scrambling were the main factor. Detmer directed the first drive to a field goal, hitting passes of 29 yards to Lee Miles of Baylor and 11 to Mike Smith of Kansas State.

Meanwhile, in the Hula Bowl, the West squad, coached by BYU's LaVell Edwards, rallied past the East, 27-20, as Fresno State's Mark Barsotti hit California's Brian Treggs with a 77-yard touchdown pass with 3:24 left.
