Crouch does not have the same passing numbers as many of the other guys on this list, but he used a balanced attack that worked out well for Nebraska.
As a traditional game manager, Crouch averaged less than 15 passing attempts per game, but he kept the offense in check with great decision making.
In 1999, Crouch's first season as the starting quarterback for Nebraska, he led the team to a 12-1 record, including a victory over Tennessee in the Fiesta Bowl. Nebraska's only loss that season came in Texas against a tough Longhorns team.
Crouch continued his success in his second season, leading Nebraska to ten wins, including a victory over Northwestern in the Alamo Bowl. During that season, Crouch threw for just 1101 passing yards, but ran for 971 yards and had 20 rushing touchdowns.
In Crouch's third season, he once again led Nebraska to double-digit wins. Nebraska won their first 11 games of the season but lost to Colorado in the Big 12 Championship game, and then lost again to a dominant Miami team in the BCS Championship.
Despite just 4481 passing yards and 29 touchdowns in three seasons as the Nebraska's starting quarterback, Crouch won 31 games, a Cornhusker quarterback record.
