yup, while I was in college 81-84 it was still referred to as the battle of the Big Reds

Obviously the Huskers hung on to the title Big Red

not sure why that title didn't stick to the Sooners

Did it go away with the loss of the annual NU-OU game?  Not sure why NU would keep it and OU not, but once the NU-OU game no longer defined who was gonna win the conf title, maybe the desire to be "the" big red just kind of fell by the wayside, at least as far as OU was concerned.  Durn shame that. 

Looking forward to the 2021 game, fifty years after the GOTC.  It's still quite a ways out and the tix will probably be hard to come by, but I'd love to find a way to get to that one.

Maybe OU dropped it out of embarrassment at the annual butt-kickings by the Huskers.

It seemed to slip in the late 80's early 90's

Huskers had a good short run 1981-1983 with Turner Gill at QB

then back to more Sooner "magic"

I will find a way.  I'm planning to be there.

I'm planning to be there too.

I'd love to see the '22 game in Lincoln as well.  I've never been to Nebraska, much less to Memorial Stadium.

Might have my esposita with me.
