Nebraska Aiming To Reverse Recent Bowl History

The stat trotted out most often during bowl season, regardless of the school, is a program’s record in bowls.  Whether or not the Huskers won the 1962 Gotham Bowl, a game played five years before Bo Pelini was even born, has no effect on this year’s game. But not all bowl history is relegated to trivia and tailgate trash talk. Recent bowl history, especially when the current players and coaches are involved, can indicate how the players might perform on […]

Pelini And Cornhuskers Looking Forward, Not Back

Lately, no stat has been used to define the Nebraska Cornhuskers more than the 539 rushing yards allowed against Wisconsin in the B1G Ten Championship Game. But one stat, let alone one game, does not define a team. “It’s not the first time we’ve gotten hit in the mouth,” said Huskers Head Coach Bo Pelini at today’s Capital One Bowl press event. “Everyone who’s played the sport of football has.” Georgia knows the feeling well, having given up 350 yards to […]

Cornhuskers Excited About Return Appearance In Orlando

Few teams qualify for “storied program” status. There are even fewer coaches that can truly be classified as legends. In the case of Tom Osborne and the Nebraska Cornhuskers, both monikers fit snuggly. When the former head coach and congressman and current Athletic Director Osborne pays you a compliment, it means something.
