Football team to be recognized at MBB game

There's plenty of reason to celebrate after the 2005 Husker football team finished the year off in style, winning their last three, finalizing their season with a dramatic win over the 20th ranked Michigan Wolverines. The University of Nerbaska along with the Alamo Bowl Chairman, will pay one more tribute to that group with the official presentation of the 2005 Alamo Bowl Trophy at this weekend's men's basketball game as the Huskers host the Missouri Tigers.

The Nebraska football team will be recognized at halftime of Saturday's men's basketball game between Nebraska and Missouri at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Nebraska Head Coach Bill Callahan, the Husker coaching staff and the majority of the players from the 2005 team will be present for the halftime recognition. Also on hand Saturday will be MasterCard Alamo Bowl Chairman Joe Linson, who will present the Husker football team with the Alamo Bowl trophy.

The presentation is in recognition of Nebraska's 2005 season that culminated with the victory over Michigan in the Alamo Bowl. The Alamo Bowl win was Nebraska's 22nd all-time bowl victory and the 43rd bowl trip in school history. The Huskers finished the year with an 8-4 record by winning the final three games of the season.  

Tipoff for Saturday's game with Missouri is set for 3 p.m. Tickets remain for the contest and are available by visiting or calling the Athletic Ticket Office at 1-800-8BIG RED.
