The Nebraska Cornhuskers represent the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in college football. The program has established itself as a traditional powerhouse, and has the fourth most all-time victories of any NCAA FBS team and is one of only eleven football programs in NCAA Division I history to win 800 or more games.[4] The Cornhuskers are the winningest college football program over the last 50 years, by winning percentage and wins.[5] On June 11, 2010, Nebraska announced that its regents unanimously voted to end the university's affiliation with the Big 12 Conference to join the Big Ten Conference beginning with the 2011 season.[6][7][8]

Nebraska has claimed 43 conference championships and part or all of five national championships: 1970, 1971, 1994, 1995, and 1997. The titles in the 1990s marked the first time since Notre Dame in 1946–49 when a team won three national championships in four seasons. The 2011-2012 Alabama Crimson Tide, the 1994-1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers, and the 1956-1957 Oklahoma Sooners have the only consensus back-to-back national titles by Division 1-A schools.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers also have five undefeated seasons when they were not the national champions; 1902, 1903, 1913, 1914, and 1915. Between 1912 and 1916, a 34-game unbeaten streak was recorded by then head coach Ewald O. Stiehm.[9]

Famous former Huskers include Heisman Trophy winners Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier, and Eric Crouch. Rodgers was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and for the new millennium he was voted the team's "Player of the Century"; his Cornhusker jersey (No. 20) was retired. Rozier was likewise inducted into the hall in 2006. Other Husker players and coaches who are members of the College Football Hall of Fame include: Forrest Behm, Bob Brown, Guy Chamberlin, Sam Francis, Rich Glover, Wayne Meylan, Bobby Reynolds, Dave Rimington, George Sauer, Will Shields, Clarence Swanson, Ed Weir, Grant Wistrom, and coaches Gomer Jones, Pete Elliott, Francis Schmidt, Dana X. Bible, Bob Devaney, Biff Jones, Tom Osborne, Eddie "Robbie" Robinson, and Fielding H. Yost.[10]

The Husker defense is known by the nickname of the "Blackshirts." Depictions of the Blackshirts often include a skull and crossbones. This nickname originated in the early 1960s and continued as a reference to the black practice jerseys worn by first-string defensive players during practice. This tradition developed when Bob Devaney had Mike Corgan, one of his assistant coaches, find contrastive jerseys to offset the red jerseys worn by the offense in practice.[11] Further credit is given to George Kelly, Devaney's defensive line coach until 1968, who frequently referred to the top defensive unit by the name; eventually the rest of the coaching staff caught on, while the first mention of the Blackshirts in print was not until 1969.

HistoryEdit

The early years (1890–1917)Edit

Nebraska football began play in 1890 with a 10–0 victory over the Omaha YMCA on Thanksgiving Day, November 27.[12]

The football program started strong and experienced success from the very beginning, going twenty-eight years straight with only a single losing season. Until the 1-7-1 losing season in 1899 in coach A. Edwin Branch's only year at the helm, Nebraska had compiled a 40-18-3 (0.680) record.

Nebraska's 4th coach, Frank Crawford (1893–94, 9-4-1, 0.679) was the first paid head football coach at Nebraska. Eddie "Robbie" Robinson (1896–1897, 11-4-1, 0.719) and Fielding H. Yost (1898, 8-3-0, 0.727), the sixth and seventh head coaches, were the earliest Nebraska coaches to eventually be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Walter C. Booth (1900–05, 46-8-1, 0.845) was the program's 9th leader, and had the second-best career record spanning more than a year during this era, bested only by Ewald O. Stiehm (1911–15, 35-2-3, 0.913), who won the conference title in all five of his seasons and whose winning percentage as Nebraska's 12th head coach remains an all-time program best.

A brief slump (1918–20)Edit

When the United States became involved in World War I, many young men went off to war, depleting the ranks of football teams nationwide. In addition, travel was severely restricted, causing the cancellation of numerous scheduled football games. Further complicated by the effects of the 1918 flu pandemic, the 1918 college football season was severely impacted.

William G. Kline led Nebraska through the stunted 1918 season, managing a 2-3-1 (0.417) record. Henry Schulte (1919–20, 8-6-3, 0.559), with thirteen years as a coach at other schools before arriving at Nebraska, managed over the next two years to barely attain a winning record as the program recovered from the war and aftermath. Although Schulte stepped down as head football coach after 1920, he remained at Nebraska to coach other sports and as an assistant football coach through 1938.

Climb back to dominance (1921–41)Edit

By the end of the post-war slump, Nebraska had been led by fifteen head coaches over thirty-one years, but a new period of relative stability followed as Nebraska once again experienced success in college football.

Fred Dawson (1921–24, 23-7-2, 0.750) arrived at Nebraska after stints at Columbia, Denver, and Virginia. During the entire three-year tenure of Knute Rockne's Four Horsemen, Notre Dame lost only two games; one each in 1922 and 1923, both to Nebraska in Lincoln before packed houses. In his four years he won three conference titles and compiled the best record from this era, though it was nearly matched by the two coaches to follow him.

First-time head coach Ernest E. Bearg (1925–28, 23-7-3, 0.742) pulled in a title in his final season before handing over the team to Dana X. Bible (1929–36, 50-15-7, 0.743). Bible had an established reputation after fifteen years of experience as head coach, bringing in five Southwest Conference titles for Texas A&M, and his success continued as he led Nebraska to six more conference titles in his eight seasons.

Biff Jones (1937–41, 28-14-4, 0.652) was not as successful as his predecessors, yet still was a winning coach who claimed two titles in his tenure and brought Nebraska to their first ever bowl game, a loss to Stanford in the 1941 Rose Bowl. The following year, as the nation began to more fully be drawn closer to involvement in World War II, the program set a new record low with five straight midseason losses. One week after the final game of the season, Japan carried out the attack on Pearl Harbor. The country was again at war. Many thousands of young men joined the armed forces and were soon shipped abroad, as Nebraska's fortunes once again headed into a downturn.

Slide into obscurity (1942–61)Edit

Nebraska was led by three head coaches during the war years, with a scarcity of players available as so many of the country's young men were abroad and at war. By 1945, the year the war ended, the Cornhuskers recorded a losing 11-24-0 (0.314) record.

The situation did not improve after the war, as Bernie Masterson (1946–47, 5-13-0, 0.250) recorded the worst head coach career winning percentage ever compiled at Nebraska in his first and only head football coaching appointment. Previous head coach George Clark (1945 & 1948, 6-13-0, 0.316), a veteran of both world wars with an extensive coaching pedigree and who led Nebraska in the final war season of 1945, returned as Nebraska's coach for 1948 temporarily as a search was made for his successor, prior to his ascension to Athletic Director at Nebraska.

Clark hired Bill Glassford (1949–55, 50-40-4, 0.471), and Nebraska's performance improved somewhat over previous years, especially after the 6-2-1 1950 season, and Nebraska's second-ever bowl appearance, a 7-34 loss to Duke in the 1955 Orange Bowl.

Following Glassford, Pete Elliott, a star quarterback who led Michigan to the 1948 national championship, arrived at Nebraska for his first ever head coaching appointment. Although he would go on to achieve successes later in his career, he recorded a 4-6-0 (0.400) record in his one year at Nebraska. His replacement, Bill Jennings (1957–61, 15-34-1, 0.310) fared even worse at the helm, his final career record with the Cornhuskers being the lowest of all but three of Nebraska's coaches.

The Devaney and Osborne dynasties (1962-–97)Edit

Bob Devaney (1962–72, 101-20-2, 0.829) brought about an immediate turnaround in the fortunes of Nebraska football. He led Nebraska to a 9-2 record in his first season, including Nebraska's first ever bowl win against Miami in the 1962 Gotham Bowl. This was the first of what would eventually be 40 consecutive winning seasons, and Nebraska's NCAA-record ongoing sellout streak began in the seventh game of this season. After five straight bowl game seasons, Devaney's squad suffered two 6–4 years in a row in 1967 and 1968, prompting a change in philosophy suggested by offensive assistant Tom Osborne, who would also advance to Offensive Coordinator the following season. Over the next four seasons, Nebraska suffered just four losses, amassed an overall 42-4-2 (0.896) record, won the conference title in each year, and secured Nebraska's first and second national championships.

File:Tom Osborne (1965).jpg

Devaney stepped down after the 1972 season and took over the duties of Nebraska's Athletic Director. Osborne (1973––97, 255-49-3, 0.836) subsequently became Nebraska's longest-tenured and all-time winningest coach, who also became the NCAA's fifth most winning Division 1-A coach in history over the course of his 25 years at the helm. Osborne never won fewer than nine games in any of his seasons, and secured thirteen conference titles.

Nebraska posted a 60–3–0 record between the 1993-97 seasons to end Osborne's tenure . ESPN.com has named the 1995 Nebraska Cornhusker team the greatest team of all time.[13] Fan voting has consistently pegged the 1995 Cornhuskers or the 2001 Miami Hurricanes (who would later cap their perfect season against Nebraska in the Rose Bowl) as the greatest college football team in history.

The Post-Osborne era (1998-present)Edit

Upon Osborne's retirement, the program was handed over to coaching assistant Frank Solich (1998–2003, 58-18, 0.766), who also had played for Nebraska from 1963-1965. In his six seasons, Solich won one Big 12 North Division title, an outright conference championship, and took the Cornhuskers to the 2001 National Championship Game. After a weak 7-7 campaign in 2002, Solich changed his approach, much as Devaney had done after 1968, and made changes to his assistant coaching staff. The turnaround appeared successful, as Solich's 2003 team went 9-3 in the regular season. However, second-year Nebraska Athletic Director Steve Pederson fired Solich before the bowl game, justifying the move by stating he would not "let Nebraska gravitate into mediocrity", and would not "surrender the Big 12 to Oklahoma and Texas".[14] Solich's defensive coordinator, Bo Pelini, hired in the 2002 staffing shakeup, was appointed interim coach and led the Cornhuskers to a 17-3 Alamo Bowl win over Michigan State to close out the 2003 Nebraska season with a 10-3 record.

Although Pelini interviewed for the position as permanent replacement, ultimately former Oakland Raiders head coach Bill Callahan (2004–2007, 27-22, 0.551) was named as Solich's successor. Callahan's mandate to prevent Nebraska's decline was not immediately successful, as he installed the West Coast offense made popular in the National Football League. His 2004 first-year record of 5-6 was Nebraska's first losing season since 1961. The 8-4 2005 season showed improvement, and Nebraska's 9-5 record in 2006 accompanied a conference division title. However, in 2007, Nebraska dropped five games in a row for the first time since 1958, including a record-setting 76-39 loss to Kansas. Pederson was fired as athletic director in the middle of the five-game slide, and Tom Osborne returned from his political career to fill in as interim athletic director. Callahan subsequently put up just one more win, against Kansas State, before closing the season with a 65–51 loss to Colorado. In four years, Callahan had achieved the lowest winning percentage by a Nebraska head coach in 46 years, and Osborne fired him the following day.

Osborne selected Bo Pelini (2008–present, 38-12, 0.760 as of the end of the 2011 season) to return to Nebraska as the 32nd head coach of the Cornhuskers. Pelini's first team tied for the division title with a 9-4 record, the best record among all twenty-eight first-season coaches in college football's FBS division. In 2009, Nebraska led the nation in scoring defense, finishing 10-4 with another division championship and a #14 overall ranking. Following the 2009 season, Pelini was given his second raise and contract extension. In 2010, Nebraska again finished 10-4 with another division championship and a #20 overall ranking.

The Cornhuskers' 2011 season, its first as a member of the Big Ten Conference, was moderately successful, with wins over eventual Legends division champion Michigan State and Leaders division runner-up Penn State, but a close loss to Northwestern, and blowout losses to Wisconsin and Michigan. Nebraska finished its season in disappointing fashion, losing to South Carolina 30-13 in the Capital One Bowl, for a final record of 9-4.

Logos and uniformsEdit

Nebraska has worn traditional uniforms throughout its history. The first helmet was red, with a white stripe. This was later changed to a plain white helmet with a black number on the side. During 1967–1969, a red, offset "NU" was placed on each side of the helmet. From 1970, the "NU" was changed to the simple, familiar "N" that remains today, although it is thought a few "NU" helmets remained in use as late as 1972. There were not enough U stickers available before the 1970 season, which became the first national championship season. The single letter was considered a good luck charm so it remained.

The helmet design has remained essentially unchanged since 1970, with the exception of the face mask, as it was changed from grey to red prior to the 1982 Orange Bowl game against Clemson.

File:HerbieHusker.JPG

The jerseys have only been altered a few times, with the addition of shoulder stripes and numbers. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Huskers wore full shoulder stripes reminiscent of those worn by the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. These were gradually phased out when mesh and tearaway jerseys became popular. For the 1974 Cotton Bowl Classic, the jersey has the script "Nebraska" embroidered onto the front. From 1980–83, Nebraska's jerseys featured just a simple block "N" on the sleeves. In 1984, two sleeve stripes and sleeve numbers were added back to the uniform, where they essentially remain today, although the stripes and numbers have decreased in size as jersey sleeves have shortened over the years.

Shoulder patches were added to the jerseys beginning in 1989, with a patch that commemorated the 100th season of Nebraska football. The following season, a patch with "Nebraska Football: A Winning Tradition" embroidered on it was added above the left breast of the jersey. In 1999 a new version of this patch debuted and it has remained there to date.

Names began appearing on the backs of the jerseys for bowl games beginning in the 1970s. Around 1980, the players' names began appearing on the road jerseys. The home jerseys remained nameless except for when worn during bowl games, with one exception. A brief tradition was established for the last home game of each season, where seniors (playing their final game in Memorial Stadium) were allowed to wear names on their jerseys; underclassmen, however, did not. This explains why footage of many Oklahoma-Nebraska games played in Lincoln during this era feature some Nebraska players with names on their jerseys and some without. From approximately 1988 onwards, names were permanently affixed to the home jersey, where they remain.

The team traditionally wears white pants at home and red on the road, although there have been exceptions. Nebraska donned red pants with red jerseys for the first (and to date, only) time in school history for its 1986 contest against Oklahoma. Nebraska led this game for 58½ minutes before losing a 20-17 heartbreaker due to some late OU heroics, and the combination was deemed to be unlucky.

File:NebraskaWisconsin2012.jpg

Nebraska began periodically donning all-white, beginning with the 1991 Citrus Bowl game against Georgia Tech (a game in which they were blown out, 45-21). They next tried the combo during the 1992 season, wearing all-white for the first three road games of that year. They lost two of the three, including an embarrassing 19-10 decision to an unranked Iowa State squad. The combination was not tried again until the ill-fated 2002 uniform (see next paragraph) and was also worn during Bill Callahan's last game as head coach (another embarrassing loss, this time 65-51 to Colorado). As a result, Husker fans typically associate the all-white look with losing and tend to prefer the red road pants.

From 1968–94, the pants had two stripes down each side. Originally they were thin stripes, but became thicker sometime in the mid-1970s.These were removed prior to the 1995 season, and the pants remained stripe-less until 2001. For the 2002 season, Nebraska experimented with side panels on the jersey and pants, and went to all white permanently on the road. The look was overwhelmingly disliked by most fans, presumably because the Huskers went 7-7, which was at the time their worst season in 40 years. In 2003, Nebraska returned to a look similar to the one they wore from 1995–2001. In 2004, the two pant stripes returned to the uniform, where they have remained since.

On September 26, 2009, for the first time in school history, the Cornhuskers wore "throwback" uniforms from 1962 in honor of Nebraska's 300th consecutive sell out. Adidas is the official shoe and uniform sponsor of Nebraska athletics.

For the 2010 season, the numbers on the outside of the shoulder were placed on the top of the shoulder pads, similar to the style of the late 1970s.

Memorial StadiumEdit

File:091507-USCNeb-MemorialStadium.jpg

The Huskers currently hold the record for the most consecutive sold out home games, which celebrated its 325th consecutive sellout on November 17, 2012 when the Huskers played host to the University of Minnesota. The stadium is currently under construction to add approximately 6,000 additional seats bringing attendance to over 92,000 on game days. The sellout streak dates back to November 3, 1962 during Bob Devaney's first season at Nebraska. The Huskers lost the first game in the current streak, a Homecoming game, to Missouri 16–7; 36,501 fans were in attendance.[15][16]

Since the 1994 season, Nebraska's home games have opened with the Tunnel Walk. Before the team enters, the HuskerVision screens light up with a burst of computer animation, and "Sirius" (an instrumental by The Alan Parsons Project) blares from the speakers. Accompanied by cheers from the crowd, the Huskers take the field. When the Cornhuskers play at home in Memorial Stadium, the stadium holds more people than the third-largest city in Nebraska, Bellevue.

RivalriesEdit

NaturalEdit

OklahomaEdit

Historically, the Nebraska–Oklahoma rivalry often carried league championship and occasional national championship implications. The teams regularly battled for the Big Eight Conference title until 1996, when the conference was absorbed by the new Big 12 Conference. Out of the Big Eight, Big Seven, and Big Six's 89-year history, Nebraska or Oklahoma won or shared the conference championship 71 times.[17] The Cornhuskers and Sooners also played several games during the 1970s and 1980s that decided the national championship.[18]

Trophy gamesEdit

MissouriEdit

The Victory Bell is awarded to the winning team. Nebraska won the last meeting between the two schools and now holds the Victory Bell until a game is scheduled between the two schools again.

IowaEdit

The Heroes Game awards the Heroes Trophy the winning team.
