That safety was unbelievable. I was jumping around, all excited, and accidently bumped the buddy next to me who bumped the girlfriend of some big dude next to him. My buddy said "settle down, man" - but what's an excited fella to do?The run was by far the greatest highlight. However in my case the scenario of the back to back defensive plays right in front of us for a safety was special. Especially knowing how cross get into defensive stands like that. :-:
I attended the game and that still brings tears to my eyes. I remembered the Huskers took the field in complete silence prior to the Tunnel Walk.Haven't read all these yet, so it may be mentioned one or more times.
For me, it is the Thur night game against Rice after 9/11 The emotions were unreal but completely different than a game-winning TD or play by a long shot. Was one of the first college FB games after the attack.
The crane with the huge flag flying over the E stadium was a sight to see, and the Tunnel walk was emotional, with the first responders leading the team onto the field. Set all the emotional game-winning events aside, and this is the one I key in on.

Eric Alford catching Tommie Frazier's pass for the two-point conversion to tie the game. I knew with absolute certainty at that moment that we were going to win.Schlesinger’s two touchdowns(I know that’s not a singular, but I can’t separate the two). What a release of emotions after all those years of near-misses and heartbreaks
