Offensive tackle Jon Phillips: On Nebraska being favored couldnt have worked out better. We were perceived to be the underdog, and that's what we liked about it We knew good and well that we could hang in there with any of them. We knew that, with our schemes and our offensive line, we could potentially dominate the game like we did. The very first drive, we drove down to the 6-yard line and fumbled.

Most teams would've been over on the sidelines disgusted. We were encouraged. We took the ban and shoved it down their throats. We felt like if we could hang onto the ban, we could do it the whole game. "They were predicting 35-21 from Nebraska's offense.

The most points I gave them myself was 10 points and that was seven of them on our turnovers," On Nebraska's defense "They havent played an offensive line as good as ours. They've played passing teams and they are good pass rushers but as far as size, strength and mobility, they havent played anybody of our cauV ber. Even though they're a good defensive line, they Ye not as thick as we are: "When you come off the ball and knock someone 5 yards down the field, you know that it's going to be a long day for them. I'm not trying to be cocky, but I don't think anybody's going to be good against the run against us." On playing Miami in the Orange Bowl "We have a lot of respect for them, but I tell you what we want to kifl them." Barry Switzer tent ready yet to take a look at Miami, Oklahoma's foe in the Orange BowL "They are a very talented team, but I dont want to think about that yet We just wanted to get to the Orange Bowl," he said. And even though Orange Bowl appearances are old hat for the Sooners (eight times since Switzer became head coach and 15 times overall), Switzer isnt tired of the trek to Miami "I'm not sick of the same bowl not when you're playing for the national he said.

"At least I dont need a tour guide. I know my way around Miami pretty well" Free safety David Vickers: On Oklahoma's mood coming into the game "All the talk going down to No. 2, playing bad the past couple of weeks all of that added to our concern about being prepared, and Td say this is by far the best week of practice we've had, maybe since I've been here. We really wanted to get out today." On Nebraska quarterback Steve Taylor "He's a good quarterback. He's not as great as he says, but I had a feeling we'd shut him down.

Our defensive line, our ends and everyone put a lot of pressure on him. That shows how good we On Nebraska's pre-game talking "I think it's like Brian Bosworth. He used to talk, and not on our part, but he used to talk a lot to get himself fired up and it kind of had its effect on us. That's what I think their thinking is, let's get them NU quarterback Steve Taylor looks dejected as he walks off the Oklahoma tight end Lance Price shows how he thinks the Sooners field after loss. should be ranked after OU's final touchdown.

Cornhusker cornerback Lorenzo Hicks came away with respect for Oklahoma. But the Sooners may not be the best in the nation, he said. "Oklahoma No.

No, I dont think so," Hicks said. "From what I've seen and read about the way they're playing, I think Florida State is the No. 1 team right now." Nebraska will play the Seminoles in the Fiesta Bowl "It's going to be pretty tough," said Hicks. When OU's Dante Jones intercepted Steve Taylor's pass with 2:43 left in the game, a disgruntled fan in the North end zone tossed a Sony Watchman TV on the 1 Offensive tackle Keven Light- ner praised Oklahoma defensive backs David Vickers and Rickey Dixon. "I dont think they have any better than those two," Lightner said On Patrick Collins' 65-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, the go-ahead TD for the Sooners, Husker safety Mark Blazek said the Blackshirt defense shifted to a different coverage, reacting to a Sooner back in motion.

It was the only time all day the Huskers used that coverage. "As far as being sound, it was fine, we just didn't attack it and get outside," he said. On Keith Jones' 25-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, Nebraska guard John McCormick said Oklahoma's defensive end tried to string; turf. No one was hurt, but the TV was shattered. 1 Nebraska strong safety Jeff Tomjack, who intercepted a pass, would cast a No.

1 vote for Oklahoma if he had one. Based on Saturday's pme, the Sooners "deserve it," he said. According to Tomjack, the Cornhusk-ers didn't play with as much emotion Saturday as they did in last year's 20-17 loss to Oklahoma. "I've been thinking about that" he said. "There probably wasn't as much because going into this game we thought we were the better team.

Looking back now, it probably would've helped. We" should've had a little more." Nebraska quarterback Steve.
