Description

Bob Devaney brings an Irish grin and a swagger to Nebraska in 1962, and in eight short years he transforms NU from doormat to powerhouse! The 1970 Huskers are loaded with talent and a young redheaded OC calling the plays. They cruise through the '70 season to find themselves the beneficiary of #1 Texas and #2 Ohio State stumbling in their bowl matchups earlier in the day on January 1st, 1971. It leaves the Orange Bowl between #3 NU and #5 LSU to decide the 1970 National Title! It's Nebraska's first ever and stamps Nebraska footballs ticket to pre-eminence for the next 30 years. Coach Devaney is named coach of the year and young upstarts like Johnny The Jet Rodgers, Jerry Tagge and Willie Harper shine, while seasoned veterans Jerry Murtaugh, Dave Walline, and Ed Periard define emerging Blackshirts pride. DVD box set includes all 12 games from the '70 championship season complete with Lyell Bremser's radio broadcast and as edited by renowned Husker historian Paul Jacobsen.
