Any item associated with 1994 is a great item to collect as this was Tom Osborne's First National Title and the Third in School History.

 

Osborne was on the door step to winning a National Title on many occassions, but each time, something happened to prevent that allusive Title

 

But, then, during the last 5 years of his career, he won Three National Titles and played for a fourth almost played for a fifth.  Truly a glorious time in the history of the Nebraska program.

Here is a bit of history about the

1994

NEBRASKA

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

 
But, a little history always helps understand memorabilia and we must go back to the Orange Bowl of 1994 - which was played after the 1993 season to understand just how determined the Nebraska team was to win the First Title for their Coach and their school.  
 
Nebraska was undefeated in 1993, and they were invited to play against Florida State in the 1994 Orange Bowl.
 
And, FSU was an exceptional Florida State Team with the Heisman Trophy Winner in Charlie Ward.
 
And, the game was a thrilled and amazing game and to be truthful, Nebraska beat that Florida State Team in almost every way - except on the scoreboard. 
 
 The officiating in that Orange Bowl was horrible, as ESPN has stated on numerous occassions.
 
But, after numereous bad calls, Nebraska fell to Florida State by a score of
 
18 to 16
 
Nebraska did have a chance at the end to win the game, if they would have only made a long field goal, but the field goal was no good and Nebraska lost a heartbreaker.
 
The Nebraska players were upset and determined to return and finish the work they began.  Every player felt that they had
 
UNFINISHED BUSINESS AT THE ORANGE BOWL.
 
 
Thus, the MOTTO heading into the 1994 Season was
 
UNFINISHED BUSINESS
 
 
And, as the 1994 season started, things were going great. 
But then, in the second game of the season - Mike Minter, the starting safety and one of the exceptional players on defense was seriously injured with a knee injury in he Texas Tech game and major knee surgery was needed.  He was out for the season.
 
Mike Minter had a sensational NFL and he was one of the great players on thata 1994 team.
 
But then, it was only a couple weeks later and the headlines in the paper shocked everyone,
 
Tommie Frazier was out with Blood Clots
 
 
The dream of
FINISHING BUSINESS GREW DIMMER EACH DAY as the news of Tommie Frazier was not good.
 
 
In stepped Brook Berringer who did an unbelievable job of keeping the team together and everyone focused.
 
 
But, the roller coaster did not stop. 
 
Brook Berringer played in the Wyoming Game, but was injured near the end of that game and was taken to the hospital with bruised (or cracked) ribs.  He had to wear a special protective rib pad.
 
Matt Turman finished the Wyoming game and that game was actually close and the final score was 42 to 32 - but it was closer than the score showed.
 
Brook Berringer came back to play the first half of the Oklahoma State game, but because he was in tremendous pain, he did not play much in the second half and Matt Turman held things together as the Huskers beat the Cowboys by a score of 32 to 3. 
 
Keep in mind, the Huskers were winning with a Third String Walk-on Quarterback in Matt Turman.
 
But, the next game on the schedule was no easy task, the Huskers were playing a much improved Kansas State Wildcat team at Manhattan.  They had an exceptional quarterback in Chad May and they were out for blood.
Tommie Frazier and Mike Minter actually drove down to the game and sat in the stadium and watched the game as the Walk-on Quarterback by the name of Matt Turman started the game.  He handed the ball to Lawrence Phillips all game long and it was a defensive battle.  Finally, at the end of the first half, Brook Berringer was feeling good enough and he entered the game and played a good chunk of the second half and the Huskers were mighty lucky to get out of Manhattan with a 17 to 6 victory.
 
Surprisingly, after that game, the Huskers were dropped in the polls, even though Nebraska was still winning with a third string quarterback.
 
But, Tommie Frazier continued to be on blood thinning medicine for the blood clots he was having.  And, by the next game against Missouri, Brook was feeling better and he played brilliantly.
 
By then, Nebraska was raised in polls to the #3 team in the country. 
 
Nebraska had been ranked #1 - but after Tommie Frazier went out with blood clots, the polls dropped Nebraska after the KSU game.
 
 Nebraska beat Missouri by a score of 42 to 7.
 
But then came the big test.  Colorado came to Lincoln on October 29, 1994 with the #2 ranked team in the country.  They had the leading Heisman candidate in Rashaan Salaam, a fabulous receiver in Michael Westbrook and a sensational quarterback in Kordell Stewart.  Everyone thought Colorado was going to beat Nebraska badly.  But, Brook Berringer had his best day at Quarterback as he looked like a pro quarterback and the Huskers demolished the Buffalo by a score of 24 to 7.  Osborne played it very close to the vest in the second half and the score could have been worst, but Osborne just wanted to keep Colorado in check and not make a mistake and not risk any more injuries with risky or plays that could backfire.   Osborne just wanted to get out of that game with a win.
 
By now, everyone was feeling good about Brook Berringer and the Cornhuskers and Nebraska was once again elevated to the #1 spot in the polls.   But still, Frazier was out and Minter was out - who was rehabing his knee. 
 
Nebraska played Kansas next and won by a score of 45 to 17 and then there was a game that was much closer than people expected as Nebraska struggled against Iowa State and with two late touchdowns left Ames with an uncomfortable 28 to 12 victory.  The late scores made it look like it was a good victory, but it was not.  There was a point in the fourth quarter that was extemely uncomfortable as Iowa State could have taken the lead as Nebraska was hanging onto a 14 to 12 lead.  But, the two late touchdowns made it look better than it really was.
 
By now, Tommie Frazier had been decreasing his medicine and was allowed to return to practice on a limited basis. 
 
Nobody knew it, but Coach Osborne was getting Tommie Frazier for the Oklahoma game, just in case the Huskers needed a spark in that game. 
It was kept quiet, but, Tommie Frazier actually joined the traveling squad on that Oklahoma trip. But, this is the real strange part, he did not wear his normal jersey.  I've heard a couple different stories, but the story that Glen Abbott (the Head Equipment Manager) told me is that Tommie Frazier felt uncomfortable wearing his #15 jersey because the team had been wearing wrist bands with his number of #15 (his number) and Mike Minter's number of #10.  He also was not starting that game, he knew that he would not start the game and he would only play in case of a dire emergency.  In other words, Brook Berringer would have to be knocked out of the game in order for Tommie Frazier to see action.  Because he was not starting, and because he wanted to keep a low profile and because the team was wearing his number on their wristbands, he did not wear his regular jersey.  Instead, Frazier wore a jersey with #17. 
 
But, Frazier was an insurance policy for Nebraska that day in Norman, Oklahoma as the Huskers won a close game against the Sooner by a score of 13 to 3.
 
It was after that Oklahoma game that Nebraska again had an undefeated regular season and a #1 ranking and Nebraska was extended an invitation to play the Miami Hurricanes in the 1995 Orange Bowl - another home game for the Miami Hurricanes. 
 
And, Tommie Frazier went back into training in earnest to earn his starting job back, which he did.  And, in the 1995 Orange Bowl, he returned to his #15 jersey - because he was once again the starting quarterback.
 
In that game, it took both Frazier and Berringer as they both played and contributed heavily.  Frazier started, but was then pulled after an awful interception when Nebraska was in scoring position.  Entered Berringer who played well and helped Nebraska get on the scoreboard.
 
But, after Berringer threw another interception late in the third quarter, while the Huskers were in scoring position again, Tom Osborne re-inserted Frazier and Frazier was the spark that Nebraska needed.
 
In the end, it was Tommie Frazier who led Nebraska from behind in the fourth quarter on two scoring drives and Nebraska finally beat Miami on their own turf by a score of
 
24 to 17
 
And Osborne finally had his first National Title and the Third in School history.

On our listing we state that we ship internationally by priority mail.  However, if you send us your address, I will check to see if your country offers First Class Package Mail with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance and will quote a price.  But, you must send us your full address through the Ebay Message System.

 If you bid, please understand these costs.
