Take a walk down memory lane to the 1984 Orange Bowl between Nebraska and Miami and you have a game considered by many to be the single best college football matchup of all time. The game had it all, including injuries to a star player and a fumblerooski, but there is one play that's been glossed over in history, one with conspiracy-theory buzz.
On this play, Cornhuskers wide receiver Irving Fryar, a first-team All-American and the No. 1 overall pick in the 1984 NFL Draft, appears to drop the ball on purpose. At the time there were rumors Fryar was being paid, potentially by the mob, to throw the game, or at least alter the point spread. Given the timing in the game this drop is without doubt one of the worst in college football history, conspiracy or not.
