Husker Title Runs
The Huskers have the power to be in the hunt for their sixth national title in 2000. NU
has played in nine national championship bowl contests, winning back-to-back national
championship titles in 1970 and 1971 and again in 1994 and 1995. The Huskers had a shot at
the 1996 title until they were upset in the Big 12 Championship by Texas. NU entered that
game ranked No. 3, despite an early-season loss at Arizona State. In 1997, Nebraska went
13-0 and played in its fourth title game in a five-year period, winning the national title
as named by the coaches poll, but not by the AP.
The Huskers' back-to-back national championship titles in 1994 and 1995 marked the ninth
time overall (by just six Division I schools) and first time in 16 years that a team had
repeated, since Alabama won back-to-back titles in 1978-79. Nebraska is only the second
school to win undefeated and consensus back-to-back national titles, the first since
Oklahoma accomplished that feat in 1955-56. No Division I-A school has won three
consecutive national championships. Hall of Fame Coach Bob Devaney (who passed away in May
of 1997) won the school's first national title in 1970 and repeated in 1971. Three teams,
counting Nebraska, have repeated twice, including Oklahoma (1955-56 and 1974-75) and
Alabama (1964-65, 1978-79). Nebraska and Oklahoma are the only schools, since the coaches
began picking national champions, to be unanimous repeat champions, in both polls, posting
perfect, back-to-back national championship seasons. OU went 11-0 in 1955 and 10-0 in
1956. The Huskers are the only team to have won four AP and four coaches poll titles since
1970. Nebraska (1994, 1995, 1997 by coaches) and Notre Dame (1946, 1947, 1949 by AP) are
the only two teams to win three national titles in a four-year period.
