Nebraska Cornhusker football began in 1890. Since 1962, Nebraska has ended up with a top 25 ranking in all but 8 seasons. The Huskers have 46 conference titles and 5 national championships to their credit. With legendary coaches like Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne, and football alumni such as Mike Rozier, Roger Craig, and Tom Rathman, the Huskers have churned out incredible talent every year for decades. Nebraska had long standing rivalries with the Colorado Buffaloes and, most notably, the Oklahoma Sooners, with whom Nebraska has competed for the Big Eight and now the Big 12 title for many years.
The Cornhuskers open new rivalries as they moved to the Big Ten Conference in 2011, leaving the Big 12 behind. Penn State, Iowa, Illinois and more will lock up with Nebraska's football team for years to come.
Nebraska plays their home games at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska. The stadium has a capacity of more than 84,000 and has had a sellout crowd in more consecutive games than any other college football stadium (288 at the time of this writing). Visitors to a Cornhusker game at Memorial will quickly understand what they mean by “a Sea of Red”.
