Back-to-back national titles in 1994 and 1995. Three championships in four years. A five-year record of 60-3. As the Huskers’ coach in the 1990s, Tom Osborne enjoyed the best career-finishing run in college football history.
These were nearly unbeatable teams, and for Nebraska’s fans, unbeatable times.
But beyond names, games, scores and statistics, the story of these Husker teams is a human one, played out by genuine, flawed and exceptional people. They were bound together by devotion to each other and an undying love for their coach.
This is the story of the greatest era of Nebraska football.
The book will be available for delivery in November.
