DuBose, Sundberg and Chad Daffer INT

Official recap
Nebraska spotted Louisiana State a 10-0 lead, then roared back on the passing arm of quarterback Craig Sundberg to take a 28-10 victory in the 1985 Sugar Bowl.

It took the Huskers just six plays to fire back into the game. After Doug DuBose picked up chunks of 10 and 12 yards, Craig Sundberg flipped a screen pass to the dazzling sophomore and Doug streaked 31 yards to score.
