Nebraska will celebrate anniversaries for six championship teams when the Huskers host Northwestern in a national ESPN2 football telecast Saturday at 11 a.m. The honored teams include the 20th anniversary of national championship seasons for Nebraska football and Husker volleyball and a 10-year anniversary of a national championship in bowling.
Other honorees Saturday are 10th-anniversary teams that include Nebraska’s first baseball squad to win a game in the College World Series. The Huskers’ 2005 NCAA runner-up volleyball team will be honored. So will the Huskers' 2005 women’s gymnastics team, which qualified for the NCAA National Super Six Finals.
Here are time-capsule looks at each of those six teams, including student-athlete and staff members who will be in Lincoln for private reunion events Friday night and Saturday's game day recognition at Memorial Stadium.
