Beyond the Box Score: 1997 Nebraska-Missouri

January 17, 2019

One of the two or three most famous plays in the history of Nebraska football is officially written in the history books (i.e. the box score) this way: M.Davison crossing pass from S.Frost for 12 yards to the MISSOURI0, 1STDOWN NU, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:00.

That’s the flea-kicker. Doesn’t exactly capture the moment does it? In some ways that’s good for Nebraska. 

The Huskers were the No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll entering that game with 46-of-70 first-place votes.
