TEMPE, Ariz. -- He has seemingly been around forever. In an age when most blue-chip college quarterbacks at top-shelf Division I-A programs usually get to start two years, three max, Tommie Frazier has played all four at Nebraska without redshirting.He has seemingly been in the spotlight since arriving in Lincoln. Next week's Fiesta Bowl will mark Frazier's third straight postseason game with national championship implications, and his fourth straight major bowl.Yet it seems only yesterday that Frazier was the wunderkind freshman who brought coach Tom Osborne's prehistoric option offense into the present.

MIAMI -- The winner seemed relieved.The loser seemed dejected.The coach seemed oblivious to all the commotion.After being accused of doing the obvious too often in his 22 years at Nebraska, coach Tom Osborne did what many anticipated he wouldn't by announcing yesterday that Tommie Frazier will start at quarterback for the top-ranked Cornhuskers against No. 3 Miami in Sunday's Federal Express Orange Bowl.Frazier, a preseason Heisman Trophy contender who led Nebraska to its first four victories this season before missing the last two months with blood clots in his calf, will take over from Brook Berringer, the one-time backup who led the Cornhuskers to seven straight victories.

MIAMI -- Seven straight bowl defeats, and Nebraska wouldn't die. Seven straight bowl defeats, a 17-9 deficit in the fourth quarter, back-to-back turnovers and Nebraska kept coming back for more.Out went Brook Berringer. In came Tommie Frazier. Who would have believed it? Frazier marched the Cornhuskers down the field for a touchdown. Frazier hit Eric Alford for the two-point conversion to tie the score.It was the same stadium where Nebraska had lost the past three Orange Bowls. It was the same end zone where Miami foiled the Cornhuskers' two-point attempt to win their first national championship in 1984.
