|NU First to Win 100 Games in Back-to-Back Decades
Nebraska recorded its 100th win of the 90s with a 40-10 win over Missouri in Columbia on Sept. 25 and finished with a 108-16-1 mark in the 90s (.868, second). Nebraska is the first Division I program to win 100-plus games in consecutive decades as NU won 103 games to 20 losses in the 80s. The only other team to post 100-plus wins in the 80s was Brigham Young with 102 wins and 26 losses. Oklahoma (102-13-3) and Alabama (103-16-1) posted 100-plus wins in the 70s, while Nebraska came close to achieving the mark in three consecutive decades, as NU won 98 games in the 70s. Florida State finished the 90s with a 109-13-1 record (.890, first), but had just 87 wins in the 80s. By decade, the Huskers were 75-30-1 in the 60s (.712); 98-20-4 in the 70s (.820, fifth nationally) and 103-20-0 in the 80s (.837, first). Nebraska posts the best record over the past three decades with a 309-56-5 record. The Huskers have not lost more than 20 games in any of the last three decades.
NU Posts Stellar 90s Record
With three national championships, there's no doubt that the Nebraska Cornhuskers were among the best in the last decade. Nebraska had 108 wins in the 90s. NU's 60-3 five-year run from 1993-97 was not only impressive, but unprecedented in NCAA Division I-A. NU is 81-8 over the last seven years and its five-year record of 58-6 from 1994-98, led the nation. In 1993, the Huskers went 11-1 losing only to Florida State, 18-16, in the Orange Bowl for the national championship. That began a run of wins, records and crystal collections. Nebraska followed 1993 with three perfect seasons in four years, winning national titles in 1994 (13-0), 1995 (12-0) and 1997 (13-0). No other team won three titles in the 90s.
