ALL HAIL THE HYPNOTOAD
Most fun moment, we had some local Atlanta guys sitting in the middle of our section talking loud on purpose before the game chirping the TCwho, faking bookie calls taking Ole Miss, asking how bad this was going to be for poor TCU, etc.
It was so fun watching them try to sneak out unnoticed in the middle of the second quarter in the middle of SEC chants. Enjoyed asking them why they were leaving…

I have this game on DVD and watch it as well. Yes, that is a total of Minus 23 yards rushing for Tailback U. 1998 Sun Bowl stats:

Game summary​

Basil Mitchell had only 19 carries but ran for 185 yards and two touchdowns as TCU scored on their first three possessions and dominated the time of possession in the first half (having the ball for 20:15). TCU quarterback Patrick Batteaux also had two touchdowns for TCU, both rushing. But Carson Palmer (who had 280 yards passing) threw two touchdowns (one to Billy Miller and the other to Petros Papadakis) that made it 28–16 going into the fourth quarter. After stopping TCU on a drive, the Trojans got the ball back and drove to the TCU 20 early in the fourth quarter. But TCU's defense stuffed their offense, as USC kicked a field goal to make 28–19. From that point on, TCU ate up most of the clock as USC did not score again, giving TCU their first bowl win since 1957 in what would be the first of six consecutive bowl appearances.

Defensive Lineman London Dunlap was named Jimmy Rogers, Jr. Most Valuable Lineman and Running back Basil Mitchell was named C.M. Hendricks Most Valuable Player.[3]

Yeah, there was a ton of trash talk from the Ole Miss fans before the game, not so much when they didn't come back to the stands after halftime. Saw a bunch of OM decals and flags on cars on the way to Atlanta on the 30th, didn't see a single one on the way home on the 1st. Gotta admit I reveled in their embarrassment afterward.

Yeah, it got kind of sparse in the blue and red areas.
