With Nebraska's 300th consecutive sellout coming in 2009d, I thought I'd use the opportunity to look back at some of the best battles that Memorial Stadium has hosted since the streak began against Missouri back on homecoming day of 1962.
As you would imagine, this list was extremely hard to narrow down, as there have been some epic clashes hosted in Lincoln. Granted, none have really happened this decade except one, but hey, let's not worry about the recent futility.
Great programs have had their ups and downs, but through it all, Huskers fans have shown a commitment to their team like no other in all of sports.
The criteria for the list: Extra consideration given to games where both teams are highly ranked, or where one team is in position for a national title and the other is in the spoiler role.
Fantastic finishes get notice as well, though there are a couple where the dominance of NU stood out against a team perceived to be stronger. I couldn't make a top 10 list, that was too difficult with all these classics. Rather, this is just 10 games in chronological order.
And yes, losses are included in this list, considering that having a wins-only clause would have kept out some Husker/Sooner classics. Any other games you feel warranted a spot, feel free to comment.
