In 2004, the bowl produced what later turned out to be a record-setting drive. In the third quarter, Navy, with a 31-19 lead, successfully forced New Mexico into a three-and-out, culminating a goal-line stand. Taking over on offense, the Midshipmen then executed a drive that encompassed 26 plays, 94 yards, and 14 minutes and 26 seconds of the game clock, stretching well into the fourth quarter. The NCAA later confirmed that the drive was historic, setting records for the number of plays in a drive and time of possession in a drive. [1]


UCLA will play Florida State on December 27, 2006 at 5 pm PST in this year's Emerald Bowl.
