SIU's first-ever Division I-AA semifinal playoff game was played in driving rain and sleet. The crowd of 11,000 seemingly cheered on every play, no matter its significance. No. 1 SIU built a 9-0 halftime lead on three Ron Miller field goals. Nevada (then known as Nevada-Reno) drew within two points with a third-quarter rushing touchdown. SIU scored 14 fourth-quarter points to seal the win, including Terry Taylor's 24-yard interception return for a TD.
