What is an unclaimed national championship
University of Nebraska-Lincoln football team
The Nebraska Cornhuskers Soccer The team competes in the Football Bowl Subdivision of NCAA Division I and represents the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the West Division of the Big Ten. Nebraska plays its home games at Memorial Stadium, where every game has sold out since 1962. The team is trained by Scott Frost.
Nebraska is one of the most famous programs in college football history. Until 2019, the Cornhuskers occupy seventh place in all victories among the FBS teams. Nebraska claims 46 conference championships and five national championships (1970, 1971, 1994, 1995, and 1997) and has won nine other national championships that the school does not claim. NU's 1971 and 1995 championship winning teams are among the best in college football history. Famous Cornhuskers include Heisman Trophy winners Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier and Eric Crouch, who join 22 other Cornhuskers in the College Football Hall of Fame. Notable among these are players Bob Brown, Guy Chamberlin, Tommie Frazier, Rich Glover, Dave Rimington and Will Shields, and coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne.
The program's first long period of success came shortly after the turn of the century. Between 1900 and 1916, Nebraska had five unbeaten seasons and played 34 straight games without loss, still a programming record. Despite spanning 21 conference championships in 33 seasons, the Cornhuskers did not have much national success until Bob Devaney was hired in 1962. In eleven seasons as head coach, Devaney won two national championships, eight conference titles, and coached 22 All-Americans, but perhaps his most sustained accomplishment was the hiring of Tom Osborne as offensive coordinator in 1969. Osborne was named Devaney's successor in 1973 and established himself as one of the finest coaches in college football history for the next 25 years, with its signature I-Form offenses and revolutionary strength, conditioning and nutrition programs. After Osborne stepped down in 1997, Nebraska went through four head coaches before hiring native Scott Frost in 2017.
Conference affiliations

Six former Nebraska head coaches have inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame: Eddie N. Robinson, Fielding H. Yost, Dana X. Bible, Biff Jones, Bob Devaney, and Tom Osborne. Osborne leads the program in most of the major categories. Its career win percentage of 0.836 is the fourth highest in the history of great college football. Thirteen Nebraska coaches have won a conference championship at the school, and Devaney and Osborne have together won five national titles.

Bowl games 
Nebraska has played in 53 bowl games, including an NCAA record of 35 straight from 1969 to 2003 with a record of 26 to 27.
Memorial Stadium 
Memorial Stadium, known as The Sea of Red, has been home to the Cornhuskers since 1923 and is the site of an ongoing NCAA record sell-off of 375 games. The sell-off streak dates back to 1962, Bob Devaney's first season in Nebraska. The stadium becomes the "third largest city in Nebraska" on match days as its capacity exceeds that of all cities in Nebraska except Omaha and Lincoln.
The stadium has undergone a number of expansions since 1923, increasing the official capacity to 85,458. The largest crowd in Memorial Stadium history occurred on September 20, 2014, a Nebraska win over Miami with an announced attendance of 91,585.
There are three statues outside the stadium. The oldest, revealed in 1997, shows six Nebraska defenders attacking a ball carrier. Creator Fred Hoppe said, "The memorial shows the pride of Nebraskans in their football team." In 2006, Hoppe created a statue of Tom Osborne with his arm around quarterback Brook Berringer, which is located outside the Osborne Athletic Complex. On August 30, 2013, a bronze statue of Bob Devaney was unveiled at the main entrance of the newly designed East Stadium. The sculptor Joe Putjenter also created the tunnel walk gates in the stadium.
Before the construction of Memorial Stadium, Nebraska played its home games at Antelope Park and Nebraska Field.
Since 1994 Nebraska's home games have been opened with the “Tunnel Walk”. Shortly before kick-off, the Memorial Stadium “Sirius” plays while the Huskers take the field out of the northwest tunnel. Immediately before the Tunnel Walk, the west side of Memorial Stadium yells “Husker” in unison, while the east side replies with “Power”.
At every home game since the 1930s Fans released red helium balloons when the Huskers score their first points. In 2012, a global helium shortage threatened the tradition, but the university allowed a limited number of balloon releases throughout the season. The tradition normalized again the following year.
Nebraska has a long-running walk-on program designed to attract student-athletes who have not received scholarship offers. NU accepted its first gig in the early 1960s, and Tom Osborne started an official program in 1973 after the NCAA reduced the number of scholarships schools could offer. The size and stature of the program mean that Nebraska's rosters are often unusually large. NU had 141 players on their Fiesta Bowl team in 1996, while their opponent Florida only had 94. Osborne attributed flexibility to his companions in order to better locate future opponents. Unlike some other schools, Nebraska's walk-in schools have the same access to training facilities and academic advice as those with scholarships. Nebraska has made six All-American walk-ons and has 29 in the NFL.
Uniform story 
Nebraska's first helmet was red with a single white stripe, which was later changed to plain white with a black number on the side. From 1967 to 1969 the helmet had a red, offset “NU” on each side. In 1970 this was changed to the now known single “N”, although some “NU” helmets were still in 1972. The change was necessary due to a lack of "U" stickers, and when the program claimed its first national championship, the single N remained. The helmet design has remained essentially unchanged since then, with the exception of a face mask change from gray to red in 1982.
The Huskers wore full shoulder stripes in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but these gradually faded as mesh and tearaway jerseys became popular. From 1980 to 1983 Nebraska's jerseys only had one “N” block on the sleeves. In 1984, stripes and TV numbers were permanently added, although both have lost size due to the shortening of the jersey sleeves. A patch was placed on the left shoulder to commemorate the 100th season of Nebraska football in 1989. it stayed the following season and was changed to read "Nebraska Football: A Winning Tradition". The players' last names first appeared on jerseys for street games and bowl games in the late 1970s, but home jerseys remained nameless except for seniors who played their last home game. In 1990 all jerseys were given a permanent surname.
Nebraska's defense has been known as the “black shirt” since the 1960s, a reference to the black jerseys worn by starting players during training. Representations of the black shirts often include a skull. The tradition began when Bob Devaney made defense use contrasting jerseys to offset the red the offensive wore in practice.
The team traditionally wears white trousers at home and red trousers on the street, although there have been exceptions. Nebraska first donned red pants and red jerseys in 1986 for its competition with Oklahoma. The combination was unofficially withdrawn after a late defeat in Nebraska. Nebraska first wore all-white uniforms in the 1991 Florida Citrus Bowl, a 45-21 loss to Georgia Tech. NU used white-on-white combo for their first three street games in 1992, but lost two of them, including a disgruntled loss to Iowa State. The "surrender suits" as they came to be known have not been seen for over a decade. In 2007, the white-on-white combo was worn for Bill Callahan's last game as head coach, an embarrassing loss to Colorado. Nebraska again dressed in all white in 2014 to contrast the red uniforms of the Fresno state. NU won 55-19 and wore white shorts in three other street games that season.
From 1968 to 1994, Nebraska's pants had two stripes on each side. These were removed before the 1995 season and the pants remained streak-free until 2001. In 2002, Nebraska experimented with large side panels on their jerseys and pants, and only wore white to every street game. The changes were unpopular with fans, and Nebraska was quick to roll back most of the changes, including the permanent return of the pantstripes. When Scott Frost became head coach in 2018, the pants stripes were removed as a tribute to the uniform style from Frost's playing career.
Nebraska first wore throwback uniforms in 2009 to celebrate Memorial Stadium's 300th consecutive sale. In 2012, Nebraska and Wisconsin played in the first “Adidas Unrivaled” game. Both schools' uniforms featured block letters instead of front numbers and proved extremely unpopular. The following year Nebraska wore black jerseys with white stenciled script numbers against UCLA. In 2014, Nebraska wore an all-red uniform with black metal stripes on the jersey and pants, and used a similar design for all-black and all-white uniforms for the next two years.
In 2017, Nebraska wore throwback uniforms to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the school's national championship team in 1997. Unlike previous years, this design has been well received. Nebraska wore throwback uniforms again in 2018 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Nebraska wore alternate uniforms with Blackshirt designs in 2019, which featured a black jersey and Blackshirts logo on both sleeves. Frost suggested that this iteration could be a permanent design to be worn after Nebraska's defense played particularly well.
Adidas has been Nebraska's official shoe and uniform sponsor since 1996. In 2017, the school and sponsor agreed on a record 11-year contract for $ 128 million in apparel.
Trophy games 
The Nebraska-Colorado rivalry, one-sided for much of its history, gained momentum with Colorado's resurgence in the 1990s. The teams have scored 71 times, with the 1898 series, a 23-10 Nebraska win. The Cornhuskers run the 49–20-2 series. The rivalry began when Colorado joined the Big Eight in 1947; They played at the same conference as Nebraska until 2010. A bison head named Mr. Chip was introduced to the winning team in the 1950s. However, that exchange ended when Colorado misplaced the trophy in 1961. The teams haven't played annually since both programs left the Big 12 in 2011, but future non-conference games are planned for 2023 and 2024.
The Heroes Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the Iowa - Nebraska game (also known as "The Heroes Game") since 2011. The teams have met 51 times, with the 1891 series claiming a 22-0 win in Iowa. The Cornhuskers run the series 29-19-3. Iowa holds the trophy after beating the Cornhuskers in 2020. The teams play annually and will meet next in 2021.
The $ 5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the Minnesota - Nebraska game since 2014. The teams have met 61 times since 1900, a 20-12 Minnesota win.

The Victory Bell (also known as the Missouri-Nebraska Bell) has been awarded to the winner of the Missouri-Nebraska game since 1927. The teams have met 104 times, with the 1892 series representing a 1-0 NU win when Missouri fell to protest the presence of African American George Flippin on Nebraska's roster. The Cornhuskers carry the 65-36-3 series. Nebraska holds the victory bell after defeating the Tigers in 2010. The series has been inactive since Nebraska's move to the Big Ten in 2011. There are no future games planned.
The Freedom Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the Nebraska - Wisconsin game since 2014. The teams met 13 times. The 1901 streak was an 18-0 win in Wisconsin. The Badgers run Series 9–4. Wisconsin holds the Freedom Trophy after defeating the Cornhuskers in 2019. The teams play annually and meet on November 21, 2020.
Nebraska and Oklahoma have long been recognized as one of the great rivalries in college football. The teams have scored 86 times, dating back to 1912, a 13-9 Nebraska victory. The Sooners run the 45-38-3 series. The series has been inactive since Nebraska's move to the Big Ten in 2011. Future non-conference games are planned for 2021, 2022, 2029 and 2030. Specifically, the 2021 game in Norman marks the 50th anniversary of Nebraska's 35:31 victory over Oklahoma in the Game of the Century.
Nebraska dominated the series until 1942, going 16-3-3 in the first 22 sessions. The Sooners then won 16 games in a row, the longest run in the series. Nebraska's 1959 win ended both the Cornhuskers' drought against the Sooners and the winning streak at the 74-game conference in Oklahoma. Nebraska won Game of the Century in 1971, of which Courier-Journal's Dave Kindred wrote: "You can stop playing now, you played the perfect game." Oklahoma won every matchup from 1972 to 1977, a run that ended in 1978 when Nebraska upset Oklahoma No. 1; less than two months later, OU won a rematch in the Orange Bowl. Nebraska controlled the 1990s, including a 69-7 win in 1997, the largest profit margin in series history. When the Big 12 started in 1996, the schools stopped playing annually, ending a track they'd known for 68 consecutive years. The teams last met as conference opponents in the 2010 Big 12 Championship Game when Oklahoma beat Nebraska 23:20.
The two programs combined won 74 of 89 Big Eight championships, 41 from Nebraska and 33 from Oklahoma. The teams played 18 times when both were in the top ten in the AP poll and nine times when both were in the top 5.
Nebraska and Kansas share a natural border rivalry and, at 105 years of age, have maintained the longest uninterrupted rivalry in college football history. The teams have scored 117 times, with the 1892 series, a 12-0 Kansas win. The Cornhuskers lead the series 91–23–3, which comprised 36 victories in a row from 1969 to 2004. The series has been inactive since Nebraska's move to the Big Ten in 2011. There are no future games planned.
Nebraska and Kansas State were conference rivals from 1913 to 2010. With only 135 miles between schools, they were the closest cross-border rivals at the Big Eight and Big 12 conferences. The teams have scored 95 times, with the 1911 series, a 59-0 Nebraska victory. Nebraska leads the 78-15-2 series, which comprised 29 straight wins from 1969 to 1997. The series has been inactive since Nebraska's move to the Big Ten in 2011. There are no future games planned.
The 1939 game was televised in Manhattan, Kansas, making it the second televised college football game. The 1992 competition was held in Tokyo as the Coca-Cola Classic.
The Cornhusker rivalry with Texas is known for tension between the two teams rather than the number of games played. The teams have scored 14 times, with the 1933 series, a 26–0 Nebraska victory. Texas leads the series 10-4. The series has been inactive since Nebraska's move to the Big Ten in 2011. There are no future games planned.
In the very first Big 12 championship game, Texas angered two-time defending champions Nebraska. In the 2009 Big 12 Championship Game, Nebraska's own angry bid was spoiled when an extra second put back on the music box allowed Texas to score a game-winning field goal.
Nebraska and Miami are two of college football's biggest bowl rivals, having ripped off in many memorable bowl games over the years. The teams scored 12 times, with the 1951 series, a 19-7 Miami win. The series is bound, 6-6. There are no future games planned.
The most notable game of rivalry is the 1984 Orange Bowl. Top-ranked Nebraska only scored seconds to finish the game between 31 and 30, but NU head coach Tom Osborne opted for a two-point conversion instead of an extra point, even though Nebraska would have won the national championship through a tie. Miami won the game and its first national title.
