Miami, Fla., Jan. 1, 1993--The Seminoles struck first in the opening quarter and scored 20 unanswered points before split end Corey Dixon caught a 41-yard bomb from Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier with 1:31 remaining in the first half to end the Seminole run.

Nebraska had missed on two field goal opportunities, while Florida State was good on two attempts. After Nebraska stalled on its first possession of the second half, the Seminoles put together an 85-yard drive to go up 27-7. That would prove to be FSU's last score, as the Husker defense forced the Seminoles to punt on all of their five remaining possessions and limited the potent offense to 102 total yards from that point. Frazier connected with tight end Gerald Armstrong on a 1-yard pass with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter to pull within 13, but threw two interceptions as No. 3 FSU held on for a 27-14 victory.

The No. 11 Huskers were slowed by five fumbles and turned the ball over three times after leading the nation in turnover margin during the regular season. Dixon had a career-best day, with 123 of Nebraska's 146 receiving yards and ran a 35-yard reverse en route to being named the Nebraska MVP. Trev Alberts was the Huskers' leading tackler with a career-high 14 tackles. The Huskers were limited to 144 yards rushing after leading the nation in rushing in the regular season.

NU dropped to 9-3 on the season and finished 14th in the final polls, its 24th consecutive year finishing in the AP top 25. FSU upped its record to 11-1 and finished second to Alabama in the polls.
