Quantcast
Steve Taylor at QB
Official recap
Michigan took full advantage of every one of five key Nebraska errors in the third quarter to score 24 unanswered points and turn a 14-3 halftime deficit into a 27-23 win over NU in the Sunkist Fiesta Bowl.

Nebraska led at halftime on a pair of second-quarter TDs by Doug DuBose — a 5-yard pass from McCathorn Clayton and a 3-yard run — but disaster struck soon and often after Michigan kicked off to start the second half.
