Hell, I'm not even sure 95 Nebraska or 01 Miami could beat 04-05 USC... let alone beat 05 Texas...
Prior to the 2006 Rose Bowl, ESPN's SportsCenter ran a special in which the 2005 USC Trojans, led by stars Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, and LenDale White, were compared with the greatest college teams of the past 50 years, as picked by sports fans voting on ESPN.com, to determine their place in history. The 2001 Miami Hurricanes were the only team picked by fans to defeat the '05 Trojan squad, reflecting the esteem with which the 2001 Hurricanes are held in the college football world.[6]

The only widespread fan poll I recall ESPN running on that subject resulted in a final matchup of 95 Nebraska against 71 Nebraska, which led Kirk Herbstreit to throw a hissy fit on national TV.

I don't believe they have the emoticon here, but it involves the rolling of the eyes and a half-clinched fist making a back and forth motion.

01 Miami would've violated Vince Young and Texass.

2001 Miami would've torn that ancient option offense to shreds, and won BIG (like they did against the 2001 Nebraska option). WAY too much talent on that Miami team.
Please. They almost got knocked off by a 4 loss mediocre VT team.

'95 Nebbish thrashed everyone. They played 4 top ten teams and beat those teams by an average of 23 points.

I still remember all of the talk leading up to the MNC game about how good UF was. LOL.

LOLs. The Big 8 had 4 teams finish in the top ten that year.

Weak as is gets was the Big East circa 2001.

01 canes would have smashed Tommy Frazier and that option. Maybe the greatest team ever besides the 09 Alabama Tide, 99 Florida State, 89 Canes,

Default Wouldnt be close

95 Nebraska beat four teams that FINISHED the season in the top 10 by an average of 31ppg... Those four opponents' records other than the losses to Nebraska were 42-3. 1995 Nebraska beats 2001 Miami 35-20... 2005 Texas isnt even in the conversation

1995 Nebraska played against speed against Florida in the National Championship game in the state of Florida (Orange Bowl) and look how that ended up. Nebraska 95 defense was more dominant than most people remember. NU pulled their starters out of every game early and often. Miami nearly lost to unranked Boston College and Virginia Tech. The only thing Miami has going for them is that they would make the game in Miami. Lets even it up and say they would play in Kansas City in 40 degree weather, then Nebraska would win by 24-plus. If Miami was given a National Championship home game again, then I'd say Nebraska still wins by 10. Nebraska had the better QB, RB, Fullback, Coach, Special Teams. Miamis best things that year were their secondary, Tight end, and Oline. I'm just saying if they only beat a non top ten team (VTECH) by 2 and escape with a victory over a nonranked BC, Nebraska would show them whats up.
