It was Compton’ first career interception in his last game as a Husker. Burkhead had a nice game in his finale, unforunate he had an injury plagued senior season. Rex is one of the most respected and poular Huskers ever, he will be missed.

You left out the best play in a Biig 10 bowl…Clowney’s Collision!

    No doubt that was the best play in Big Ten bowls. But this was for plays made by Big Ten players.

You should have shown where Clowney owned Lewan and about knocked Vincent Smith unconscious while forcing a fumble then recovering the fumble.

At least put in an extra of Clowney unleashing the atomic bomb on Vincent. Hardest hit I’ve seen in my life!

Ben24, if you want to see the hardest hit ever, check out Nebraska’s John Ruud’s hit on Oklahoma’s Kelly Phelps on a kickoff return in the 1978 Nebraska upset of #1 Oklahoma, Phelps was out cold before he hit the ground. Of course the refs blew the call, in one of the worst calls ever, calling no fumble. The play led off an Omaha TV stations’ newscast for years after that. Hardest hit I’ve ever seen.
