Berringer, the backup quarterback who filled in for an injured Tommie Frazier and led Nebraska to the 1994 national title, died on this day in 1996 when the plane the 22-year-old was piloting crashed in Raymond, Nebraska.

Two years ago, to commemorate the 18th anniversary of No. 18’s death, BTN Originals produced “Unbeaten” The Life of Brook Berringer,” a documentary that profiled the quarterback’s story.
