Overview

“For Nebraska, we will.”- 1916 Nebraska vs. Oregon State: This project is intended to be a chronological look into the Nebraska Cornhusker football team’s trip to Portland, Oregon, to take on the Oregon Agricultural College Aggies. The Huskers intended on making their schedules tougher, thanks to Dr. E.J. Stewart and his determination to make the Nebraska football program one of the top in the nation. The ability of Nebraska University to schedule stronger out of conference opponents led to a growth in support, not only in the state of Nebraska, but nationwide (Cornhusker Yearbook, "The Future" letter).  “Husker Spirit” became one of the main staples of Nebraska football and still continues to make the Huskers a special team to play against on any given Saturday.
