Among those in attendance at Memorial Stadium were college football legends Barry Alvarez and Tom Osborne.
Alvarez had himself a busy day, starting it all of in Madison, where the Wisconsin athletic director's football team shut out Miami (OH), 58-0, before making his way to Lincoln, Nebraska, for the festivities to celebrate the team that went 10-1, including 7-0 in the Big 8, en route to finishing No. 3 in the Coaches Poll.
