FSU Wins First National Title
Led by Charlie Ward, Florida State came from behind to defeat Nebraska 18-16 to secure the school's first-ever national crown.
In a game that had two climactic finishes, the Seminoles overcame the stigma of losing games by a field goal by winning one with their own. True freshman place kicker Scott Bentley's 22-yard field goal his fourth of the day, put Florida State on top with: 21 left to all but seal a victory.
The game seemed to end after Husker quarterback Tommie Frazier hit tight end Trumane Bell with a 29-yard pass as time expired. But officials concurred that: 01 had to be placed back on the clock and the field was cleared for another finish. This time it was Nebraska's 45-yard try that sailed wide left, giving FSU its ninth-straight bowl victory.
An Orange Bowl-record crowd of 81,536 witnessed just the 11th meeting ever between the No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams and just the third ever in the Orange Bowl.
