College Football Hall of Fame

Latest offers

The recruiting dead period ends Thursday night, and the Nebraska staff is doing all it can to get ahead now. That means plenty of offers have recently gone out from the Huskers.


Frost has been clear he wants to build the bond back up on the Nebraska football team. With a fresh start ahead, strengthening that bond could be exactly what the Huskers need.

A nod for JD Spielman

Nebraska wide receiver JD Spielman was one of six Big Ten selections on the Freshman All-America team released by the Football Writers Association of America on Monday. Spielman became the first Nebraska wide receiver to be named to the team.
