The 2005 Orange Bowl represented the BCS National Championship Game of the 2004 season and was played on January 4, 2005 at Pro Player Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

The teams were Southern California Trojans and Oklahoma Sooners. Both programs entered with undefeated, 12-0 records. The Trojans defeated the Sooners by a score of 55-19, led by quarterback Matt Leinart. ESPN named Leinart's performance as one of the top-10 performances in the first ten years of the BCS system.Ted Miller, [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3400731 Young's double delivery highlights memorable BCS performances] , ESPN.com, May 19, 2008, Accessed May 19, 2008.]

The game featured many firsts regarding Heisman Trophy: Leinart had won the 2004 Heisman award the month prior to the game, and Oklahoma quarterback Jason White had won the award the previous season, making it the first game to have two past-Heisman winners on the same field (and on opposite teams). The game featured four of the five Heisman finalists that year: Leinart (winner), Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson (first runner-up), White (second runner-up) and USC running back Reggie Bush (fourth runner-up); Bush would win the award the following season.

coring Summary

Halftime

The game included an infamous moment during the halftime show when singer Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, known at the time as Ashlee Simpson, was loudly jeered by the crowd after finishing her set. [ [http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/01/06/entertainment/main665240.shtml Orange Bowl Boos Ashlee Simpson] , CBS News, January 5, 2005. Note that 72,000 jeering figure conflicts with Orange bowl attendance of 77,912.] Ted Miller, [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3400731 Young's double delivery highlights memorable BCS performances] , ESPN.com, May 19, 2008, Accessed May 19, 2008.] Simpson performed "La La" at the halftime show. After her performance, many of the 72,000-plus spectators booed. Others note that Kelly Clarkson had performed before Simpson-Wentz in the show to a far more positive reaction, and assert that Simpson's performance was poor and very off-key.cite news | last=Graham | first=Renée | title=Ashlee Simpson's career comes courtesy of Daddy dearest | date=11 January 2005 | publisher=Boston Globe | url=http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/articles/2005/01/11/ashlee_simpsons_career_comes_courtesy_of_daddy_dearest/] [cite news | last=Pulskamp | first=Andrew | title=Ashlee Simpson's Halftime Performance Falls Flat|date=5 January 2005 | publisher=Local10.com | url=http://www.local10.com/entertainment/4048912/detail.html -- This news media source includes a video clip of the end of the performance.] [cite web | title=MTV - Orange Bowl halftime show story | url=http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1495731/20050111/index.jhtml?headlines=true | accessmonthday=August 27 | accessyear=2005 ] [cite web | title=Audio of Orange Bowl performance (MP3) | url=http://graphics.boston.com/audio/ae/ashlee_simpson_orange_bowl.mp3 | accessmonthday=September 7 | accessyear=2005 ] Problems with a wireless microphone and sound levels caused much of Clarkson's problems with her song, "Since You've Been Gone." For Trace Adkins, the sound levels were off as well. There had been no problem with R & B singer JoJo's performance of the "Star Spangled Banner".
