Was the ‘95 Fla game the one we were up 2-3 scores then they care roaring back and beat us by double score?
The way Nebraska blew Florida out in the NC, that year’s Nebraska team reminded me of the ‘01 Miami team. No one was going to beat either team that year.
Yes. It was 30-21, early in the 3rd Quarter.
We drove inside the Florida 5, but had to settle for a chip shot field goal which Jeff Hall missed (he had already missed an extra point). Florida drove the length of the field for a TD to make it 30-28.
We put another good drive together, and were in Florida territory when Jay Graham fumbled while diving over the line for a 1st down. It was scooped up by Florida and returned deep into our end of the field. They scored on the very next play. That made it 34-30.
On the first play of the next possession, Jay Graham fumbled again ... and Florida scored on the very next play (again). That made it 41-30.
We went 3 and out on the next possession and our terrible punter, a red-headed geek named Larry Binion, shanked a 15 yard punt. They scored quickly ... again.
We went from being up 30-21 ... to being down 48-30 in the span of about 10 minutes.
Jermaine Copeland, playing QB, fumbled at our own 20 in the 4th Quarter and Florida put their starting QB, Danny Wuerffel back into the game and he threw another TD pass to a starting WR named Chris Doering. This is notable because Fulmer had put 2nd and 3rd team players in the game by then - on both sides of the ball. Very classy of Spurrier. That made it 62-30.
The final score was 62-37.
