Nebraska football to wear Miami-inspired cleats Saturday

There was a time when Nebraska and the Orange Bowl were synonymous.

The Huskers went to 17 Orange Bowls, the first in 1955 and the last in 1998, and won four of their national championships in Miami (1970, 1971, 1994 & 1997).

With Nebraska headed back to Miami to face the Hurricanes at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday, adidas, which outfits both programs, is rolling out special cleats to mark the occasion.

Miami will sport individualized cleats for every player, while Nebraska players will be wearing the Miami-inspired cleats in the photos above and below.

The palm tree is a nice touch, but not as nice as the 17 “N’s” to account for each Nebraska Orange Bowl.

What do you think, Big Ten fans?
