90s Nebraska vs Today's Alabama

Retired Nebraska coach Tom

Osborne isn't getting drawn into arguments over how his 1990s teams that won

three national championships in four years would fare against the Alabama teams

that just accomplished the same feat.

Osborne said Wednesday he admires what the

Crimson Tide has done under Nick Saban.

The Cornhuskers' 60-3 record from 1993-97

is the greatest five-year stretch in college football history. Alabama is 61-7

since 2008.

Grant Wistrom, who played defensive end on

all three of Osborne's title teams, said the 1990s Huskers would be hard-pressed

to beat the 21st-century Tide.


Green, who became the Green Bay Packers' all-time leading rusher after leaving

Nebraska following the 1997 season, said "it would be a three-point or

overtime win for one of us."
