Nebraska football fans have been tuning into ESPN on Saturday mornings in order to see what mascot head Lee Corso is going to wear since 1987. Now they'll be able to do it for at least one more season.

During a recent interview with GQ Magazine that focused on his long career, first as a head coach and then as one of the premiere analysts in the country, Corso made it clear that he's going to be doing what he's been doing for so long, in 2024.

"I’m gonna be like that guy in Vaudeville,”Corso said during a recent GQ feature. “They hook him around the neck, and they pull him off the stage as he keeps talking.”

After Corso made it clear that was coming back for another season, one of his longtime partners celebrated the broadcaster going at least one more season as well. Kirk Herbstreit wrote on GQ's social media page about his excitement for the 2024 football season and having Lee Corso around some more.

Appreciate you taking the time to tell our story together," Herbstreit wrote. "Lee has been a very special friend to me for nearly three decades. I owe him so much for his wisdom-encouragement and advice all these years. When I face any big decision in life, Lee is one of the 1st people I seek guidance from. Thanks again for for the time to put this together."

Nebraska football fans will watch Lee Corso for one more year

While Nebraska football fans have been watching Corso since 1987, some health problems over the last decade or so, have seen his GameDay presence diminish. A stroke in 2009 and other health isssue the last few year have had people wondering when he might hang it up.

In 2023, Corso missed five different ESPN GameDay Saturdays. It will be interesting to see how many weekends Nebraska football fans will get to see him next fall.
