Nebraska QB Killed

RAYMOND, Nebraska () -- Brook Berringer, the backup quarterback who helped Nebraska win the 1994 U.S. college football title died when the small plane he was piloting crashed in a farm field.


Plane owner Harry Barr said the other person killed Thursday in the two-seat plane was Toby Lake, the brother of Berringer's girlfriend.


Berringer, 22, who was expected to be drafted by the National Football League this weekend, held a pilot's license and often flew the two-seat plane, Barr said.


Berringer was 7-0 as a starter during the 1994 season when Tommie Frazier was sidelined with blood clots in his leg.
