1) 2001, Husker Don’t. Eric Crouch and the Cornhuskers were undefeated and first in the BCS standings when Colorado handed them an epic beatdown. CU won 62-36 and Nebraska was eliminated from Big 12 title contention. But when Tennessee lost in the SEC title game two weeks later, Nebraska rose to No. 2 in the BCS standings and “earned” the right to play Miami for the championship. It was 34-0 Hurricanes at half in the Rose Bowl and Oregon fans are still wondering how their team got left out.
