There was more controversy about the matchup, for the Cornhuskers lost their regular-season finale 62-36 to Colorado, a loss that kept them out of the Big 12 title game. Colorado later won the Big 12, but Nebraska jumped over one-loss Oregon to play Miami. They didn't jump the Hurricanes, however. Future NFL stars Andre Johnson, Clinton Portis and Jeremy Shockey propelled Miami to a dominant victory over Nebraska as the Rose Bowl. Here, Johnson celebrates with Shockey after scoring on an 8-yard touchdown pass against Nebraska in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
