The 1986 Sugar Bowl, featuring the 2nd ranked Miami Hurricanes and the 8th ranked Tennessee Volunteers, was played on January 1, 1986, at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Miami appeared dominant on its opening drive, and scored first on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Vinny Testaverde to Michael Irvin to take a 7–0 lead. As the game wore on, however, Tennessee's defense began to shut down Miami's vaunted passing attack. In the second quarter, Daryl Dickey threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Smith as Tennessee tied the game at 7–7. Tim McGee recovered a fumble in the end zone as Tennessee jumped out to a 14–7 halftime lead.

In the third quarter, Sam Henderson scored on a 1-yard touchdown run as Tennessee led 21–7. Jeff Powell scored on a 60-yard touchdown run to make it 28–7. In the fourth quarter, Charles Wilson scored on a 6-yard run as Tennessee won by a 35–7 margin.

Tennessee quarterback Daryl Dickey was named Most Valuable Player.
