The Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex
The Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex is the home of Nebraska Football at the north end of Memorial Stadium. In addition to housing the Huskers' football locker room, Suh Strength Complex and Athletic MEdicine Center, the building houses the football coaches offices and Nebraska's athletic administrative areas.
Large Team Room
The large team room provides space for about 160 people and allows coaches to utilize the most advanced technology as it is equipped with theatre-quality sound and video systems.
Team Meeting Room
The team meeting room is one of several on the football floor, as each position coach has a meeting room. Players and coaches each have more space to view game or practice video, giving them a greater edge in preparing for competition.
The Osborne Athletic Complex
The Osborne Athletic Complex provides Husker student-athletes with a tremendous advantage as everything they need to prepare for competition is all in one area. Athletes have easy access to the football offices, including position and video rooms, which are one floor above the Suh Strength Complex, athletic medicine center and football locker room.
Husker coaches have a tremendous view of Nebraska's new weight room, which is 40 percent bigger than the one that set the standard around the nation in the 1980s and 1990s. Each coaches' office overlooks the strength complex, giving them a birds-eye-view of the work being done every day during the season.
Nebraska has captured five national titles in football since 1970 and is the winningest program in the nation during that period. The Huskers' five national titles, including three Sears Trophies from 1994, 1995 and 1997 - are prominently displayed in the main corridor of the football area.
