LINCOLN — Former Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier didn't initially pay too much attention to the Huskers' progress in the EA Sports “NCAA Football” and ESPN “Ultimate Team” online competition that pitted many of college football's top fan bases against each other.
But NU's semifinal matchup against Miami caught his attention. So did the title tilt against Florida State. Frazier knew those teams well, beating Miami in the 1995 Orange Bowl for coach Tom Osborne's first national title, and losing to FSU in the 1993 and 1994 Orange Bowls.
