Finally fits the bill…

It’s the ’55 game that is worth a mention. Bill Glassford’s Huskers had been stunned in the season-opener that year, losing 6-0 at home to a Hawaii team with 28 players.

But the next week Nebraska traveled to Ohio State for what seemed destined to be a humiliation. Instead, the Huskers fought to the wire, losing 28-20 in front of 80,000 fans.

After the game, the Ohio State coach, a guy by the name of Woody Hayes, told the press: “Nebraska should be proud of its team. They are not Big Ten caliber, but they played like it today.”

Big Ten caliber? Fifty-five years later, Nebraska fits the bill.
