Long before Saturday's Penn State game commanded national attention beyond football-related reasons, a former Nebraska Hall-of-Fame defensive end envisioned the Huskers' new annual cross-divisional game with the Nittany Lions evolving into NU's most competitive rivalry. He bases his prediction on national championship history between the last two teams invited into the 12-team Big Ten Conference.
Remember the Nebraska-Penn State game in 1982? Tony Felici certainly does. That 27-24 loss at Beaver Stadium was Nebraska's only setback in a 12-1 season. With Felici leading the Blackshirts, the Huskers finished third in the season's final poll after a 21-20 Orange Bowl win over LSU.
