Georgia Tech made an immediate impact in their bowl appearances by playing in the four major bowl games in their first five bowl games, winning three times. The Yellow Jackets won a national championship in 1928 by defeating California in the Rose Bowl. This game will be remembered for a play by California All-American Roy Riegels in which he scooped up a Georgia Tech fumble and ran towards his own goal line. After finally being stopped at the one-yard line, California had their punt blocked for a safety which gave Georgia Tech a 2-0 lead. The game is also memorable because both teams failed to score 10 points (final score 8-7). Another memorable bowl win came in the 1953 Sugar Bowl against Ole Miss which allowed Georgia Tech to win the national championship again.
