Condotta Looks At Nebraska, Washington History

Saturday’s Washington-Nebraska game at Husky Stadium marks the eighth meeting between the Huskies and Huskers, with half of those meetings coming in the 1990s. In the early 90s, UW was at the peak of its success and the games against Nebraska were fiercely competitive and highly anticipated by fans of both teams.

Bob Condotta took a look at the series and some of its most memorable moments.

But to most UW fans, the series boils down to games in 1991 and 1992 that were as memorable as any during a time the Huskies were among the elite of college football, plus the 1997 contest in Seattle that marked the coming-out party for Marques Tuiasosopo.

Though both programs have slipped since then, Nebraska is back in the top-ten and Washington is in the middle of a rebuilding, with anticipation as high as its been in the last decade. The history and current state of the programs make this matchup one of the biggest Montlake has seen in some time.

Washington and Nebraska kick it off Saturday at 12:30 p.m. on ABC.
