Description

Barry Switzer stated many time his 78′ team was the best he ever coached.   But thanks to 9 forced fumbles, 6 recovered by the Blackshirts, the Huskers ruined the Sooners season for once.  This piece posterized Billy Sims’ fumble with 3:37 to go on the NU 3 yard line forever.  Jim Pillen who had a huge day with 8 tackles and two fumble recoveries including this one sealing the victory.  We wont mention what happened the next week or the rematch in the Orange Bowl.  Doesn’t matter.  Taking away an Oklahoma natioal title does!

Everyone i knew as a kid had this poster on their wall.  These are impossible to find and even more so if you take into account this posters condition.  Its mint.  No creases or holes.  Just like new.
