8. Tommie FrazierQuarterback | Nebraska
Few players have thrived on a bigger stage and in bigger games more than Frazier, who led Nebraska to national championships in 1994 and '95.
After missing seven games because of a blood clot as a junior in 1994, Frazier returned to rally the Cornhuskers to a 24-17 victory over Miami in the 1995 Orange Bowl. The next season, Frazier ran for 199 yards with two touchdowns in a 62-24 rout of Florida in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl.
He had a 33-3 record as a starting quarterback with 5,476 yards of total offense and 79 touchdowns. Because of recurring health problems, he was never drafted by an NFL team.
