This tri-blended college football tee is to commemorate the Sunkist Fiesta Bowl and includes the phrase "Mane the 'Cane". The shirt is likely from the 1987 bowl when the Miami Hurricanes faced off against the Penn State Nittany Lions. The Fiesta Bowl closed out the 1986 NCAA Division I-A football season and it also served as the National Championship Game, determining the Championship winner between the No. 1 ranked Hurricanes and the No. 2 ranked Nittany Lions. Penn State ended up winning the bowl with a final score 14 to 10 granting them the No. 1 ranking and the national championship.

It was a tense game with both teams tied at 7 to 7 by the end of the first half. Miami managed to score a field goal in the fourth quarter to retake the lead but Penn State retaliated with a touchdown. There was still time on the clock for Miami to overtake them. The Hurricanes attempted one final pass to the endzone but it was intercepted with just 18 seconds left on the clock, ensuring Penn State's victory.
