Want to make a team of all Huskers in the Madden video game? 

There are 26 former Nebraska players on the game at launch, with almost enough at each position to field a starting 11 on both sides of the ball (you'll have to get creative on defense), plus a punter and kicker.

Madden 20 will be released Aug. 2, and this week the overall player ratings were unveiled. We have the full list of former Huskers and how they stack up compared to the rest of the league.

Nebraska has one former player with an overall rating above 90 and three more in the 80s.

Linebacker Lavonte David of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is once again the highest rated Husker with a 90 overall rating, though that's down five points from this time last year.

Ndamukong Suh (Buccaneers) is tied for No. 2 with an 85 overall rating. Punter Sam Koch (Ravens) also is 85 overall and is the second-highest rated punter in the game. Prince Amukamara (Bears) is the only other former Husker above 80 with an 81 overall rating.

Amukamara has the highest speed rating of any former Husker at 90. Suh has the highest strength rating at 98.

Several more former Huskers don't appear in the game at launch but are currently on NFL rosters: Devine Ozigbo (Saints), Brandon Reilly (Lions), Luke Gifford (Cowboys), Freedom Akinmoladun (Giants), Jerald Foster (Redskins) and Dedrick Young (Browns).
