If there's anything Frazier left as a legacy, it was the high standards he placed on himself.

He took pride in representing Nebraska, and still takes pride to this day when he's approached by Cornhuskers fans.

The one play he gets asked about a lot was his run in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl against Florida. However, Frazier doesn't even rank it as one of the top plays in his career.

“I don't even like talking about the Florida run. Florida had already quit in that game. They weren't even trying to tackle me. It was no big deal,” he said.

That response describes Frazier. He expected to be able to perform in that manner given the circumstances of the game.

Frazier won two national titles while at Nebraska and came within a field goal of a third title. For those who keep count, that's more than Tim Tebow.

While he didn't win a Heisman, Frazier's accomplishments will never be forgotten.
