1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Miami Hurricanes LIMITED EDITION Poster – LLoyd Mattis – RARE #91 of 19,995 COA
The 1995 Orange Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 1, 1995 between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Miami Hurricanes. It was the 61st edition of the Orange Bowl and the national championship game for the 1994 season. Nebraska came into the game with a 12-0 record and no. 1 AP ranking, whereas Miami was 10-1 and ranked no. 3. The game was a rematch of the historic 1984 Orange Bowl.
Although the Bowl Coalition’s National Championship Game, it was a match-up of the no. 1 and no. 3 teams in the country, as no. 2 Penn State was obligated to play in the Rose Bowl as the Big Ten champion. The Nittany Lions, like the Cornhuskers, were undefeated, which led to much controversy after both teams emerged from their bowl games victorious but only Nebraska was crowned national champions. It was not until the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was formed in 1998 that the Big Ten and Pac-10 would allow their champions to compete in national championship games outside the Rose Bowl.
Miami placekicker Dane Prewitt scored the first points of the game with a 44-yard field goal to open up a 3-0 Miami lead. Miami quarterback Frank Costa fired a 35-yard touchdown pass to Trent Jones for a 10-0 Miami lead. Nebraska quarterback Brook Berringer threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mark Gilman before halftime, to close the deficit to 10-7. In the third quarter, Costa threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Harris, to open a 17-7 third-quarter lead.
Nebraska outside linebacker Dwayne Harris sacked Costa in the end zone for a safety before the end of the third quarter, and Miami led 17–9. Fullback Cory Schlesinger scored on a 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to trim the lead to 17-15. Tommie Frazier then found tight end Eric Alford in the back of the end zone to tie the game at 17. A 14-yard touchdown run by Schlesinger gave Nebraska a 24–17 lead, and the defense held on to win the national championship. ~ Source: Wikipedia
