RECORD SETTER: In 1985, Roger Craig became the first Husker to score in a Super Bowl — and in that game he set single-game Super Bowl records for touchdowns (3) and points (18). The touchdown record has since been tied, most recently in 2023 by Jalen Hurts, who also scored a two-point conversion to break the scoring record.

REPEAT CONTENDERS: Mick Tingelhoff has the most Super Bowl appearances (4) among Huskers but never played on the winning team. Roger Craig has the most wins (3) of any Husker.

NU vs. NU: Twelve Super Bowls have featured Huskers on both teams. According to play-by-play logs, the only time a Husker has tackled a Husker was in 1990, when Marc Munford had tackles against Roger Craig and Tom Rathman. Jim Skow recovered a Craig fumble in the 1989 game. Defensive stats for all ex-Huskers here.
