On January 2, 1984, Miami played against Nebraska for the national title in the Orange Bowl. With 48 seconds remaining, the Cornhuskers scored a touchdown to bring the game within one. Instead of going for the extra point – this was before the “no tie” rule – and insuring a win based on their rankings going in, Coach Tom Osborne opted for a two-point conversion. But the pass attempt by Nebraska QB Turner Gill was tipped away by Miami safety Ken Calhoun and the Hurricanes won outright with a final score of 31-30. This is still considered one of the greatest games of all time and is a fitting tribute to our ethos.
