Couple of memories....My brother in law, who was a huge Miami fan came with us to the game. I bought him this flouresent green Miami shirt, so he would stick out like a sore thumb. He loved it too because liked to talk trash with the fans around us. He was REAL cocky from the time we left our tailgate in the old intramural fields behind Dick Howser, till we got to our seats. Oddly I too felt REAL good about the game. I mean we beat Auburn AT Auburn the week before and the hype was not as big in the press as before since we had lost the first two in a row. And Miami was coming in #1 with all sorts of attitude. And when I got to my seats, it was so packed, that you could not sit down, so we just stood and when we jumped on them during those first 2 plays, you knew you were in for "one for the ages" as a 'Nole fan, and I immediately looked over at my bro in law and he looked like someone had just kicked him in the nuts.
Besides those two plays the other two back to back decibal bangers were when Kirk Carruthers recovered that Miami fumble at our own 1 yard line in the third quarter, than on the ensuing first play from scrimage, P.T. launched that bomb to Ronald Lewis at like the 50 yard line from our own end zone. The place went nuts. We march it the rest of the way down the field on the ground and put the game away.
What a night.
1. We beat Auburn in Tally.
2. I am pretty sure it was Shannon Baker that caught the PT pass but I may be wrong on that one. Ronnie Lewis caught touchdown to win the Fiesta Bowl against Nebraska.
