The 1996 edition to the Alamo Bowl featured the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Iowa opened the scoring with a 1 yard touchdown run from quarterback Matt Sherman, opening up a 6-0 lead. In the second quarter, Sedrick Shaw rushed 20 yards for a touchdown. The ensuing 2 point conversion attempt was successful, and Iowa built a 14-0 lead. Zach Bromert added field goals of 36 and 26 yards, as Iowa's lead ballooned to 20-0. In the fourth quarter, Rodney Filer scored on a 14 yard touchdown run,making the final score 27-0, Iowa.

The win was somewhat bittersweet for Iowa, as one of the players had lost their mother in a fatal car accident while she drove to San Antonio to attend the game. Therefore, as a symbolic gesture of mourning, the entire Iowa team stripped their helmets of all markings.
