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.
