It’s never surprising anymore to see Nebraska fans turn out to help the Huskers win an online voting competition.
NU fans came out in droves for EA Sports and ESPN’s “Ultimate Team” competition, to see which school had the best team of football players from the last 25 years. Nebraska defeated No. 11-seed Florida State in the final round 122,200 votes to 121,100.

The Husker team was captained by running back Mike Rozier and included: QB Tommie Frazier, QB Eric Crouch, RB Ahman Green, RB Joel Makovicka, RB Rex Burkhead, DE Grant Wistrom, DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, DT Ndamukong Suh, LB Trev Alberts and S Mike Brown.
Along the way, Nebraska defeated No. 4-seed (and Capital One Bowl nemesis) Georgia 55 percent to 45 percent, No. 5-seed Florida 69-31, and top-seeded Miami 52-48.
