The second-most prolific and arguably the most successful name in Nebraska football history, "Brown" has stretched across the backs of 18 Husker lettermen trailing only Johnson (19) in Husker lore. Above, Mike Brown (left) and Ralph Brown II (right) played together on Nebraska's 1997 national championship team. Known as the "Brown Brothers" as leaders of the Blackshirt secondary from 1996 to 1999, they were not related. They have both enjoyed long NFL careers with Mike earning All-Pro honors with the Chicago Bears, and Ralph appearing in the 2009 Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals. Mike and Ralph join place-kickers Kris and Josh Brown as active NFL Huskers with the last name of Brown in 2009.
