Official recap
Florida State won, 31-28, when quarterback Danny McManus hit flanker Ronald Lewis with a fourth-down, 15-yard touchdown pass with 3:07 left in the game.

McManus' third TD pass of the day capped a 97-yard, 11-play drive that started just after the Huskers failed to deliver the knockout blow. Leading, 28-24, midway in the fourth quarter, Nebraska had driven from its 26-yard line to the FSU 2, where alternate I-back Tyreese Knox appeared headed for the end zone and a clinching touchdown. But a Seminole defender reached up from the pile and stripped the ball loose.
