90s Nebraska vs Today's AlabamaRetired 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
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."
