Nebraska Football HOF Class All Played For ’71 Huskers

All six members of the 2021 Nebraska Football Hall of Fame class played on the Huskers’ 1971 national championship team.  The inductees are: defensive end John Adkins, center Doug Dumler, defensive tackle Bill Janssen, tight end Jerry List, monster back Dave Mason and guard Keith Wortman. 

The 1971 NU team captured a second straight national title with a 13-0 record.  Nebraska defeated number-2 Oklahoma, 35-31 in the Game of the Century and capped its championship with a 38-6 dismantling of second-ranked Alabama in the Orange Bowl. 

The Hall of Fame class will be officially inducted at a banquet in Lincoln on September 10th, and will be recognized the next day during the Huskers’ home game against Buffalo.
