Nebraska Cornhuskers Football Tickets
The history of the University of Nebraska football team dates back to 1890 when they were originally known as the Old Gold Knights. The team would not adopt the name Cornhuskers until 1900. In the 1960s, head coach Bob Devaney built Nebraska into a national powerhouse. The team won four Orange Bowls and two national championships during his tenure. That set the stage for the success of Tom Osborne, who coached the team between 1973 and 1997. He coached the team to 13 conference championships and three national championships. Nebraska has switched conferences several times over its history. The school became a member of the Big Six conference, later called the Big Eight conference, in 1928. Following the dissolution of the conference, it joined the Big 12 in 1996 and then became a member of the Big Ten in 2011. If you want to attend a game in person, then you can purchase Nebraska Cornhuskers tickets at the online vendor StubHub.
