The Nebraska Cornhuskers' 1983 12-1 Season, and Heisman Mike Rozier

Rick Rush's painting, "The One and Only," depicts the 1983 game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Oklahoma Sooners. The action in the painting has Heisman Trophy winner Mike Rozier carrying the ball. In this 28-21 victory against Oklahoma, Nebraska earned their third straight Big Eight title, had an undefeated regular season, and earned a chance at the national championship. Nebraska won this battle against arch rival Oklahoma with the terrific threesome of Mike Rozier (#30), Turner Gill (#12), Irving Fryar (#27), and with superior defense. During the 1983 season Mike Rozier broke several records including most rushing touchdowns (29) and the highest average per carry (7.16). During his time at Nebraska he was also able to score against his major rival, Oklahoma. This painting represents that game winning touchdown, which made it one of the most significant of his college career.
