Nebraska football vs the Mountain West
No conference in college football has had less success against the Nebraska football team than the Mountain West. The Huskers are undefeated against a whopping nine current Moutain West squads. And several are more than just the usual 1-0 type undefeated.
Wyoming: The Wyoming Cowboys and Nebraska Cornhuskers have dueled eight times over the course of their program’s history and only twice have the ‘Pokes managed to stay within one score. They first met up in 1934 (a 50-0 NU win). They last faced off in 2016 where the Huskers won 52-17.
Utah State: It’s been a long time since the Huskers faced off against the Aggies but it used to be a fairly regular occurrence. So was a blowout. Not only is Utah State 0-8 against the Huskers but the closest game in the series – which saw its latest entry in 2003 – was 21 points.
Fresno State: Fresno State played the Huskers in 2011, 2014 and 2016 and lost all three times. Their first meeting, a 42-29 Nebraska win was the closest. Mike Riley and company got the last win against the Mountain West school in 2016, a 43-10 pounding.
New Mexico: The Lobos and Huskers have met just one time. In 1985 they squared off in Lincoln and NU emerged victorious 38-7. For those keeping score at home, that means NU has beaten the FBS New Mexico schools 201-14 in four contests.
UNLV: The Running Rebels played the Huskers exactly once. Considering they lost 48-6 in the 1988 contest, it’s not exactly surprising they haven’t been itching to take on the Cornhuskers again.
Nevada: The Wolfpack haven’t fared any better than most of the rest of the Mountain West. They got a crack at Bill Callahan’s squad in 2007 and got whupped, 52-10.
San Jose State: San Jose State has faced off against NU twice. Once in 2000 and finally once in 2008. They never got closer than 23 points in the end of either game.
Colorado State: The Nebraska football team and the Rams first met up in 1920. They played again in 1921 and 1931. They then went about 60 years before they faced off again. Tom Osborne absolutely owned CSU, logging a 71-14 win in 1991, a 48-13 win in 1993 and a 65-9 win in 1996 to cap off the 6-0 record against the Rams.
