1904: Nebraska schedules a game with Minnesota, the fourth between the schools. The move is seen as a plus for the Cornhuskers in terms of both prestige and finances.
1914: Coach Jumbo Stiehm receives a three-year contract and a pay raise to $3,500 after the Cornhuskers’ 8-0 season of 1913.
1949: Bill Glassford, the coach at New Hampshire for the past three seasons, accepts the Nebraska job at a salary of $10,000 a year.
1964: Bob Devaney sees 1964 shaping up as a rebuilding year for the Huskers.

2009: Nebraska's withdrawal of its scholarship offer to linebacker Shawn Bodtmann of Pennsylvania causes hard feelings.
2014: Former Husker All-America tackle Larry Kramer dies at age 71. Also, defensive end Avery Moss is off the team because of a campus ban related to off-field misconduct.
