On a Saturday night when Nebraska honored its 1994 national championship team, the current Huskers did a little number of their own on Miami with a 41-31 victory before a record Memorial Stadium crowd.
For more than 30 years, Nebraskans have wanted Miami in their yard, with their weather, on their turf, surrounded on all four sides by “Go Big Red” with the walls closing in. When the moment happened, and they pried open the old box of Miami emotions, well, oh my.
So much about Nebraska (and college football) has changed in 20 years. But the essence of Saturday’s win felt so familiar. Like a tribute to that night at the Orange Bowl 20 years ago, when Nebraska ran Miami into the ground. This time the Huskers didn’t wait till the fourth quarter.
Texas earned its third victory over Nebraska in the last year with a 25-23, 21-25, 25-29, 23-25, 15-8 win at the Devaney Center in front of a sell-out crowd of 8,312 fans.
