I had to leave the room and go upstairs to watch it by myself. Knew we could do it but time was getting short. Both quarterbacks made a mistake. Glad I was young enough to tolerate high blood pressure...lol.With just seconds remaining in the 3rd quarter of the 1995 Orange Bowl, Nebraska was trailing 17-9 but was driving in Miami territory. Brook Berringer had a hard time handling a snap, and he never quite got a clean handoff to the running back. Miami recovered the fumble, but the Husker defense forced the Canes to punt. The snap sailed over the punter's head, and he chased it down and tried to kick it out of the back of his own end zone. Nebraska got the ball 1st & goal inside the 5.
This is where the most underrated play occurs. Berringer tried to throw the ball away, but a Miami defender snagged it out of the air in the end zone. Nebraska had turned the ball over on two straight offensive snaps in Miami territory, and that ended Berringer's night.
That play paved the way for Frazier to be re-inserted in the game, leading to Osborne's first national championship. It was an unfortunate play for Brook, but an underrated important turning point for the team.
