Husker Football: Big Red Morphine – Huskers Vs. Wildcats ’00


Welcome back for your weekend dose of Big Red Morphine, Husker Cornerians! As the now drafted former Cornhuskers take to NFL mini-camps, we went to the libraries and shuffled around for today’s feature.

We decided upon a game that should be a fan favorite. An opponent getting ran over by an old-fashion Huskers running game? Check. NFL players dotting the roster? Check. An absolute blowout? Check.

Best of all, a Big Ten conference matchup that once wasn’t? That’s a big check.

Before Nebraska faced Northwestern on an annual basis, they met up with the Big Ten’s Upset Special in the 2000 Alamo Bowl.

The college football world expected a scrappy game. Instead, they witnessed a Big Red evisceration of the new millennium’s Wildcats.

Take some time to slip on some red, get a cold beverage and sit back while enjoying a Big Ten bash before the idea was ever a remote possibility.
