This is the Huskers' first game against Florida Atlantic, but it's not their first go-around against FAU coach Howard Schnellenberger. The Huskers faced his Miami Hurricanes in the 1984 Orange Bowl
and his Oklahoma Sooners in the Big Eight's very last conference game
in 1995. A win in the bowl game gave Schnellenberger and Miami a breakthrough national title. A shutout loss in the 1995 game helped send him out the door
after one season (5-5-1) as OU's coach. He also was the offensive coordinator for the Alabama team that beat Nebraska in the 1966 Orange Bowl
