Something new from long ago

Category: Football

Thanks to the efforts of Brian Niemann, Husker fans now have some new resources at their fingertips when looking back at the 1971 Orange Bowl, the clincher for Nebraska’s first football national championship.

For the first time, a log of every play is available, from the opening kickoff to the final kneel-down. Brian studied the game video to fill in the many details that aren’t included in the official game statistics.

He also produced a package of graphics derived from game statistics and facts. Among the half-dozen works is a Fanalytix GameView360 chart like the ones he created for HuskerMax’s 2020 game pages.

We thank Brian for his work, and we hope you enjoy it.
