Huskers End Halftime Futility Streak

Big Red NetworkSenior Writer IOctober 25, 2008

Over the last decade, Husker fans have seen a number of hallowed and revered streaks come to an end. In 1998, the Huskers saw a 7-year home-winning streak come to an end, as well as nearly 30 seasons with fewer than 4 losses and just as many with wins over Kansas State, not to mention five straight 11-win seasons. In 2000, the Huskers lost their first game by a large margin in 4 years when the Sooners pounded Nebraska 31-14. In 2001, NU gave up the most points in their history in the regular season finale and 2002 brought the most conference losses since before Bob Devaney was head coach. In 2004, we saw a 35-year bowl streak end and in 2005 a long win streak over Kansas came to an end. The 2007 Nebraska defense set all kinds of futility marks for the Huskers, which is why it was so gratifying to see the Huskers end a nearly five-year streak of losses to teams they trailed at halftime.
