OU LB Reggie Barnes is who hit Mickey out of bounds and drove him into the OU bench. Slid into an aluminum bench and suffered a severe cut to his lower leg. His calf muscles were cut to the bone, and he required a 1.5 hour surgery that night in Lincoln to repair the damage. Was one of the more unusual injuries i can remember as he was bleeding badly and OU trainers there were able to stabilize him until the Husker trainers made it across the field. Nebraska tanked after that play and OU gave TO his worst loss ever. NU went onto the Citrus Bowl vs #1 Georgia Tech and lost big again. In the 2nd half of that game NU game on with Mitchell/Hasse to put up a fight. The Unity Council was born out of the ashes of that season and the rest is history.
