Since first playing football in 1890, the Huskers have made two Rose Bowl appearances

A January 1, 1941 match up against the Stanford Indians marked the first time that the boys from Lincoln traveled west for the big game. Reports indicate that fans were so excited with the invitation, that classes were cancelled. With free time on their hands, students stormed the state capitol and demanded that the state's governor lead the singing of the university song. Despite the excitement surrounding the bowl bid, Head coach Biff Jones' team lost to Stanford 21-13.

With the 2001 BCS Championship on the line, Nebraska faced the Miami Hurricanes in the 2002 Rose Bowl which was played on January 3, 2002. Coach Frank Solich's squad entered the game with an 11-1 record while the top-ranked Hurricanes were undefeated. The red-clad fans left disappointed that afternoon as Miami led 34-0 at the half and cruised to a 37-14 victory.
