Basking in Glory
The Nebraska football team was expected to arrive on time, but decided to take a little extra time to enjoy the hard fought victory, leading to a one day delay of arriving home.
The Daily Nebraskan article shows the obvious growing Nebraska football tradition as a result of this unprecedented trip to the West coast. The alumni's wishes of having the team take an extra day to return to Lincoln showed the desire to bask in the glory of a hard fought victory, one that would not be the last. The game in Portland became a base for many more strong opponents that Nebraska would schedule over the years, progressively building its proud tradition.
