1947: The Big Six conference gets ready to grow to seven as it agrees to admit Colorado. The move creates an annual border-state clash between the Huskers and Buffaloes, teams that last met in 1907. The league's decision to change its formal name to “Mid-West Conference” would soon be reversed – and in an odd twist, it could be said that CU moved from the Big Seven to the Big Seven. | NU-CU series
 
1962: Dick Monroe, an assistant coach during Bill Jennings’ five-year tenure at Nebraska, joins the staff at Idaho, whose new head coach is another former NU assistant, Dee Andros.
 
1967: Bob Devaney re-evaluates his offense in the after­math of the Sugar Bowl drubbing and considers adding the I for­ma­tion to NU’s existing mix of formations: unbalanced T, pro-style and spread.
 
1992: Fans receive news of player dismissals and suspensions in the wake of an off-campus brawl between Nebraska football and baseball players.

«2002: Tradition­alists cringe at the announce­ment of a pending redesign* of Husker uniforms. With the unveiling still months away, fans are left to guess how extensive the redo will be. The new look would be scrapped after just one season.
 
2007: Former Husker, Packer and Steeler Lloyd Voss dies in Pittsburgh at age 65. Also, Bill Callahan’s agent* hopes for a contract extension for the head coach, who has taken the Huskers to their first January bowl since the 2001 season.
