We all know what happened in the 2003 football season, or better yet, what happened AFTER the 2003 season. Frank Solich was let go and Husker fans were left wondering whether or not that was the right move.
In terms of what happened during the 2003 season, it was about average for what Nebraska fans have seen over the past two decades. Nebraska began the season with a conference win over Oklahoma State. I don’t think we’ve seen a season start with a conference opponent since then, but I could be wrong. It’s going to be interesting to start the season in 2020 against Purdue.
