The Nebraska Cornhuskers haven’t reached the mountaintop of college football since the days of Tom Osborne, and now it’s Matt Rhule’s turn to try and finish that climb.
While the 2000s haven’t been great for Nebraska, it is still a school with plenty of football history and the infrastructure to compete in the new Big 10.
The Cornhuskers have appeared in 53 bowl games in their history and have a record of 26-27. Nebraska also holds an incredible streak of 35 consecutive years with a bowl game appearance spanning from 1969-2003.
The school’s longest streak of consecutive bowl wins came at the beginning of that stretch with six straight from 1969-1974 under head coach Bob Devaney. Devaney and the Huskers won two national championships in that stretch.
Scott Frost didn’t work out as head coach, and Nebraska hasn’t made a bowl game since 2016, but Matt Rhule will likely change that.
