The Orange Bowl Committee selects a few individuals each year into its prestigious Orange Bowl Hall of Fame presented by AutoNation. With nearly seven decades of tradition in South Florida and among the national college football world, these men typify the Orange Bowl's history. The incoming class is officially recognized during pregame of the Orange Bowl.

Defensive Line, FSU
Orange Bowl: 1994

Derrick Alexander led the Florida State defensive effort in an 18-16 win over Nebraska in the ’94 Orange Bowl, clinching the school’s first-ever national championship. The sophomore All-American had a game-high 11 tackles, including two for loss, and parlayed his success to an eventual No. 11 NFL pick after his junior season.

Shaun Alexander ran for 165 yards and three scores as Alabama lost by a point in overtime to a Tom Brady-quarterbacked Michigan team in the 2000 Orange Bowl. Alexander was the SEC’s Player of the Year and a consensus All-American after rushing for 1,383 yards and 19 TDs. The 19th pick in the 2000 NFL draft left Alabama with 15 school records and three SEC marks.

Frank Beamer led his Virginia Tech program to unprecedented success, winning 238 games in 29 seasons and 23 consecutive bowl berths. His Hokie team’s four OB appearances were highlighted by a 20-7 win over an 11-2 Cincinnati in the 2009 game. The College Football Hall of Famer was the consensus National Coach of the Year in ’99 after an appearance in the BCS National Championship game.

Scott Frost quarterbacked a pair of Orange Bowl wins for Nebraska in 1996 and 1998, with the ’98 win over Tennessee, giving the program its fifth national championship in Tom Osborne’s final year. Frost and fellow Nebraska alum Johnny Rodgers are the only two players to rush for five TDs in their careers in Orange Bowl games.  Frost is now the head coach at Nebraska, after a pair of years as the UCF coach where he garnered national Coach of the Year honors for the Knights’ 13-0 undefeated season in 2017.
