The 2004 Champs Sports Bowl was the 15th edition of the Syracuse Orange.

Georgia Tech started the scoring with a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown, on the second play of scrimmage, giving Georgia Tech the early 7-0 lead. Syracuse quarterback Perry Patterson scored on a 21-yard touchdown run cutting the lead to 7-6. Tech answered with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Reggie Ball to wide receiver Calvin Johnson, increasing Tech's lead to 14-6. Still in the first quarter, Reggie Ball threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Nate Curry increasing the lead to 21-6.

In the second quarter PJ Daniels scored on a 5-yard touchdown run, increasing the lead to 28-6. Later in the quarter, Calvin Johnson scored on a 5 yard wide receiver reverse, increasing the lead to 35-6. That was the half-time score.

In the third quarter, Reggie Ball rushed for an 11-yard touchdown to increase the lead to 42-6. PJ Daniels 1-yard touchdown run increased the lead to 49-6. Perry Patterson found Steve Gregory for a 25-yard touchdown pass. The 2-point conversion was successful making the score 49-14. A Georgia Tech field goal made the final margin 52-14, Georgia Tech.

This would be GT's last bowl victory until the 2012 Sun Bowl where they defeated USC 21-7.
