Editorial Reviews

Stretching across the rolling prairies of the northern plains and digging deep into a glorious history of football that dates back to 1890 Cornhuskers football has colored the state in the scarlet and cream of winners for generations. This one-of-a-kind collection of complete game broadcasts honors the University of Nebraska's national championship teams. From the first of coach Bob Devaney's back-to-back titles to the thrice-turned championship squads of coach Tom Osborne this anthology is rich in history swells with Cornhuskers lore and provides countless remarkable moments in their original broadcast form. Revel in the Cornhuskers players their play and the glorious national championships these men brought to Lincoln.

First of all, $10.99 for 5 complete games is an unbelievable price. So unbelievable that I doubt it'll be there for long. Anyway, this collection includes:

Games:
1971 Orange Bowl vs. LSU
1982 Regular Season vs. Oklahoma
1995 Orange Bowl vs. Miami
1996 Fiesta Bowl vs. Florida
1998 Orange Bowl vs. Tennessee

I haven't watched the extras, as of yet, but only 3 are listed:

Reflections of Perfection (Story of the 1996 Fiesta Bowl)
No Doubt Huskers Light It Up 1997
1997 Reunion: Charlie McBride, Defensive Coordinator

I can't figure out why they don't put any of this information in the product description, but A&E leaves it out all the time. That's probably not the best way to generate sales.

One really bad mistake the makers of this set made was putting the wrong score to the 1996 Fiesta Bowl on the outside AND inside of the box (and in the product description on this page). This was Nebraska's 62-24 blowout win over Florida, but the box and the product description on this page put the score as 24-17. Woops! That was the score of the 1995 Orange Bowl, not the '96 Fiesta Bowl (both games are included).

It took 3 weeks to get here, and there are obviously other games that could have been included, but at the current price, one can't complain too much.

The DVDs are copies of taped broadcast games. The 95 and 96 games were awesome, but the 71 and 82 games were very poor and had very distorted sound and picture. Whoever produced this did a sloppy job.

As we don't have college football here in Australia I find this a great change from the boring local codes of football. I find the college football is very entertaining, keeps me on the edge of my seat at times. It is very enjoyable watching how they play and their technics. I also enjoy Nebraska's type and style of football.
Keep it coming.

This is an older dvd collection that only has through the 1998 orange bowl, but I bought this for the 1996 fiesta bowl vs florida so it's all I needed. the 1996 game has the network commentators, who aren't as great as Pavelka, but it's still a great set.

The seller provided quick shipping and exactly what was descibed. This is among the NEEDS for any True Husker fan. I agree the '82 game isn't the best choice but the rest makes up for it.
Thanks!

This was a wonderful gift for a Cornhusker fan. I gave this to my father in law and he just loved it. He enjoys watching these great games over and over.
