'92 Wash at USC just a guess based on graphics and when Conway tore up Texas Tech in a Cotton Bowl around that time.  maybe that was Keyshawn?
'89 Canes at MSU.    this is around the time when the Canes went to visit Big Ten schools and pulled out two close ones and a whipping at Madison, this one at EL and another one around the same time period at the Big House.  I just remember the Canes stuffing Sparty at the goal line somewhat late in that game, and that weasel Huerta kept crushing field goals. 

the OU at N game, I may need to reflect longer but guessing '86.  It looks dark and rainy, and OU didn't get their magic going until the 2nd half.  One of the best OU/N games of all-time.  Certainly worth a watch to see Keith Jackson's ridiculousness (the TE).  Keith Jackson is on the call with Tim Brant.

edit: the other tell,  OU in all white, and Nebraska in all red (a disgraceful look).

Definitely at the Superdome. Gonna go w the 80 Sugar Bowl by process of eliminating the 79 and 81 game,
UGA played in the Sugar Biowl after the 80, 81, and 82 seasons, musta been 1979 season.

Well, then it had to be 87.  Damn



The highly anticipated Nebraska-Oklahoma “Game of the Century II” turned out to be a one-sided affair that failed to live up to the buildup — and the Huskers failed to back up their unusually brash predictions of victory.
Nebraska was a four-point favorite and had moved ahead of Oklahoma into the No. 1 spot in the polls during the week of the game. The 900-plus media credentials issued for the contest set a Memorial Stadium record.
The Huskers jumped to a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter when Keith Jones’ 25-yard run capped an 84-yard drive, but after that the game was virtually all Oklahoma. The Sooners claimed their fourth consecutive Big Eight title and retook the No. 1 ranking with a 17-7 win that was considerably more decisive on the field than it was on the scoreboard.

No, it has to be 1984.  Those are ABC graphics and CBS did game in 87, and the halftime stats were not in Nebraska favor in 87.  Odd quirk where game was in Lincoln in both 86 and 87.  It was also sunny in 87.

Correct!


Will take a correct answer as invite to select my own screenshot.

Context: Honolulu’s front page had this headline the following morning:

“UH’s 54-48 victory over Houston is a real riot”
