RESULTS - Round of 512

(101) 1993 West Virginia - 27
(613) 1988 Alabama - 18
The loss of RB Bobby Humphrey finally caught up to the Tide. Without a running game, Alabama couldn't keep the chains moving and found many promising drives stall out. West Virginia canceled out the "Derrick Thomas Advantage" by running right at the terrorizing linebacker.

(357) 1982 New Mexico - 19
(156) 1996 Nebraska - 37
DeAngelo Evans had a big game for the Huskers, running for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns. On the other side of the ball, Grant Wistrom and Jason Peter teamed up to shut down UNM tailback Mike Carter.

(229) 1987 Texas A&M - 21
(284) 1989 Arkansas - 20
In a matchup featuring two old Southwest Conference rivals, Keith Woodside carried the day for the Aggies. On just 11 carries, Woodside piled up 132 yards and a touchdown against Bubba Barrow and the Razorback defense. Ken Hatfield's wishbone offense put up the yards, but couldn't capitalize in the clutch.

(540) 1979 Baylor - 13
(28) 1981 Pittsburgh - 27
Jackie Sherrill reserved yet another ticket for the Bracket 28 semi-finals (he also coached the '87 Aggies in this bracket) by riding junior quarterback Dan Marino and a stout defense. Baylor tailback Walter Abercrombie only managed 32 yards on 19 carries against a Pitt defensive front that featured Bill Maas, Michael Woods, and All American linebacker Sal Sunseri.

Bracket Semifinals:
(101) 1993 West Virginia vs (156) 1996 Nebraska
(28) 1981 Pittsburgh vs (229) 1987 Texas A&M
