Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Conference
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are one of the most
decorated college teams in the country, snagging 43 conference titles to date. Now a part of the Midwestern powerhouse known
as the Big Ten Conference, the Cornhuskers have also played in the Big 12, Big 6/7/8, MVIAA and WIUFA since the turn of the
century. The Huskers have been part of the Big Ten since 2010, making a name for themselves quickly in the conference. With
the Iowa Hawkeyes as their biggest rival in the Big Ten, the Cornhuskers are a popular team and are often the team to beat
in the conference year after year. Big Ten football has received a change-up with the arrival of Maryland and Rutgers in 2014,
putting a new target on the Huskers backs as the Big Ten sees some big changes in the roster.
As part of the Big Ten Conference, it's no surprise that some of the biggest rivalries for the Nebraska
Cornhuskers come out of the Big Ten. The Iowa Hawkeyes are the biggest rival for the Cornhuskers, although the team also sees
fierce competition build up between other Big Ten rivals like the Purdue Boilermakers, Illinois Fighting Illini, Minnesota
Golden Gophers and Wisconsin Badgers. The Cornhuskers and Hawkeyes have a big rivalry going for the Heroes Trophy, which is
a traveling trophy passed between Iowa and Nebraska when the two teams play each other every season. Nebraska leads in wins
for Heroes Trophy play at 28-12-3, although the two teams have battled each other on the turf since 1891, when the Hawkeyes
beat the Cornhuskers for the first time.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Tournament History
Cornhuskers are one of the most prolific college football teams in the entire NCAA, creating a legacy that has outlasted the
changing decades in Division I football. The Huskers have accumulated 43 conference championship titles in a little over a
century, amassing five national titles along the way. The Nebraska football team claimed the national championship title in
1970, 1971, 1994, 1995 and 1997, with their wins in the '90s under head coach Tom Osborne marking the first time since the
'40s, when Notre Dame took home three national titles in 1946-49, that a team has won three national titles in four years.
The Nebraska football team is also 24-25 in bowl games, winning the 2013 Capital One Bowl over Georgia, 2012 Capital One Bowl
over South Carolina and 2010 Holiday Bowl over Washington. The Nebraska Cornhuskers have some thick competition in the Big
Ten this season, but they're looking to post some repeat performances in championship and bowl games.
