RESULTS - Round of 512

(34) 2004 Oklahoma - 26
(479) 1981 USC - 16
The Oklahoma defense came to play against Marcus Allen and the Trojans. USC's excellent offensive line (Roy Foster, Don Mosebar, Bruce Matthews) clearly wasn't used to the speed OU brought at linebacker. Lance Mitchell and Rufus Alexander made plays all over the field and helped keep Allen out of the end zone altogether. And this time QB John Mazur couldn't lead the Trojans back.

(290) 1991 Nebraska - 29
(223) 2004 Louisville - 34
The Nebraska offense didn't have any troubles moving the ball against Bobby Petrino's defense. The problem was John Parella and the defense couldn't put any pressure on Stefan LeFors, allowing the Louisville quarterback to sit back in the pocket and throw for 289 yards and 4 touchdowns. QB Keithen McCant was smooth running the Nebraska offense, and Derek Brown added 143 yards rushing, but it wasn't enough.

(162) 1997 Kansas State - 27
(351) 1984 SMU - 17
Jerry Ball and the SMU defense managed to slow down Michael Bishop and the high flying K-State attack. Unfortunately quarterback Don King was harassed by the Wildcat defense all night. The Mustang offense only managed 10 points against a defense that featured LB Jeff Kelly, DE Darren Howard, and S Jarrod Cooper. The other SMU points came on a Kit Case interception return for touchdown in the second quarter.

(607) 1977 Grambling - 17
(95) 2000 Florida State - 34
Eddie Robinson's best Grambling team finally met it's demise against the 2000 Seminoles here in the third round. Chris Weinke was picked off by Everson Walls once, but he threw for 411 yards and 4 touchdowns. Marvin "Snoop" Minnis caught three of those TD passes, and Atrews Bell caught the other.
