The two-time All-America walk-on from St. John, Ind., left the Huskers with a degree in communications, numerous accolades and two national championship rings. Tomich had 26 tackles for loss in his career, including 16 sacks.

Tomich recorded 41 tackles, 10 tackles for 40 yards in losses and five sacks for 26 yards. He caused a team-leading four fumbles and recovered one. He led the team with 23 quarterback hurries that caused incomplete passes. Tomich earned All-America honors from Walter Camp in 1996, was a finalist for the Lombardi Award and was named a semifinalist for the Bronko Nagurski Award. He played in the East-West Shrine Game.

 

1995 (Junior)
Tomich earned first-team All-America honors from the Associated Press, leading the Huskers to a second straight national championship. He led the team in sacks with 10, yards lost with 79, fumbles caused and recovered (3-2, respectively), and in quarterback hurries with 24. In the 1996 Fiesta Bowl, Tomich had three tackles, a sack and two quarterback hurries.

 

1994 (Sophomore)
Tomich alternated with Dwayne Harris at left outside linebacker and had 23 tackles, including 4-15 yards lost, after redshirting in
1993. His best outing was a five-tackle day in Kickoff Classic (three solo). Tomich had a tackle for loss in each of the fist three games and two (for five-yards lost) against No. 12 UCLA. Originally a walk-on, Tomich earned a scholarship prior to the 1994 season. In the 1995 Orange Bowl vs. Miami, Tomich saw extensive playing time at outside linebacker and recorded one assisted tackle.
