What game to watch next?

So I’ve been on leave with a broken foot the last 3 weeks and I’ve got another week to go before I’m most likely released to go back to work. I’ve discovered several classic games on youtube beside the NC games. Including part 1 and 2 of Husker Century I’ve watched
2010 Missouri
71 Oklahoma
78 Oklahoma
77 Alabama, video was terrible
92 Colorado
14 Miami

Haven’t decided what to watch next.

Another one


 
I was home all of last week with sick kids, so I've also been watching a bunch of old games. I've had a morbid fascination with the heartbreaking losses, but here are some of the wins that I've watched recently and really enjoyed:

1982 Iowa @ Nebraska (keep an eye out for "Bobby" Stoops playing Safety for the Hawkeyes and having the unenviable task of trying to cover Irving Fryar):
1983 Kickoff Classic: Penn State vs Nebraska:
1976 Bluebonnet Bowl: Texas Tech vs Nebraska (this one is long, but cool, because it has the original commercials):
1980 Sun Bowl: Mississippi State vs Nebraska:
1987 Sugar Bowl: LSU vs Nebraska:
1983 Orange Bowl: LSU vs Nebraska: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce-OLUju4_U

1974 (December 31) Sugar Bowl: Florida vs Nebraska (not great quality): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QSdb3WFbI0

1972 Orange Bowl: #2 Alabama vs #1 Nebraska: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgVWTqxojGA

Besides the last one, those are some games that people don't talk much about anymore. Other than the first two and the last one, they're all close games, too.

If you want some great games that will still break your heart, decades later, let me know, and I'll give you a list of those, too.

in 1986? we played a very close game at S.Carolina, that went down to the last play, i remember listening to that on radio, coulda been 1985 or 1986
NU had two really close games against South Carolina in '86 and '87. One in Columbia the other in Lincoln. Solid Gamecock teams back then and by 'solid' I mean chemically enhanced like most top 20 D1 teams of the era. Great games.

Great reminders MABC.

Spent a night in jail after both the '85 and '87 Sugar Bowls.

I'm obviously not a huge fan of New Orleans or LSU fans.
