Nebraska football legend and NFL Hall-of-Famer Mick Tingelhoff passed away on Saturday.  He was 81. 

A native of Lexington, Nebraska, Tingelhoff lettered for NU from 1959 to 1961.  As an undrafted free agent, the center went on to start all 240 games he played for the Minnesota Vikings from 1962 to 1978 and was a six-time Pro Bowl selection.  His 240 straight regular-season starts were the most by any offensive lineman in NFL history.
