The Cornhuskers have two official mascots, Herbie Husker and Lil' Red.

The Cornhuskers participate in all sponsor events in the Big 12 except for men's swimming and diving. In addition the Huskers play in three non-sponsor Big 12 events, Rifle, Bowling and Men's gym.

Football

The Husker football team began competitive play in 1890 and has claimed 46 conference championships and part or all of five national championships: 1970, 1971, 1994, 1995, and 1997. The latter three marking one of only two times that a team has won three NCAA Division I-A national football championships in four seasons. The other was Notre Dame in 1946, 1947 and 1949. Over the past 25 years, the Huskers' three Division I national championships are the second most of any Division I university, behind only the University of Miami, which has won five.

The coach who brought about the most wins, and incidentally the most losses, in Cornhusker history is Tom Osborne, who led the team for 25 seasons, from 1973 to 1997; his final record at Nebraska was 255 wins, 49 losses and 3 ties. During his tenure, the team won three national titles, including one (USA Today Coaches' Poll) in his final season. Osborne was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Nebraska's 3rd congressional district in 2000.

Nebraska's home games always open with the Tunnel Walk, which signifies the entry of the team onto the field. When the Cornhuskers play at home in Memorial Stadium, the stadium holds more people than Bellevue (the third-largest city in Nebraska). The current attendence record was set on September 27, 2008 when 85,831 fans filled the stadium. They currently hold the NCAA record for the most consecutive sold out home games; the sellout streak dates back to November 3, 1962.

The most recent Husker coach was Bill Callahan, (after being fired by interim Athletic Director Tom Osborne on November 24, 2007); the previous three coaches were Frank Solich, Tom Osborne, and Bob Devaney. Callahan represented a break from tradition in many ways. First, Callahan was the first head coach since 1956 not to be hand-picked by his predecessor. Second, Bill Callahan had implemented the West Coast Offense at Nebraska. The Huskers had previously been known for the tough running game; specifically, running the option with a strong backfield, while their new style relies heavily on a balance between the run and the pass.

Nebraska became one of only 4 teams in division 1-A football to reach 800 lifetime wins on October 14, 2006 with a 21-3 victory over Kansas State. Other teams with 800 wins are Texas, Notre Dame, and Michigan.

On December 2, 2007 athletic director Tom Osborne named Bo Pelini head football coach at Nebraska. Bo Pelini accepted the job, leaving his position of defensive coordinator at LSU after the 2008 National Championship win against Ohio State. Pelini was defensive coordinator at Nebraska in 2003 and was interim head coach for the 2003 Alamo Bowl game replacing former head coach Frank Solich.

Coach Pelini went on to win the bowl game making him 1-0 as head coach at Nebraska.

Currently the Cornhuskers have a 3-1 record for the 2008 season bringing Coach Pelini's all time head-coaching record 4-1

Volleyball

Nebraska is home to one of the nation's top volleyball programs. The Nebraska women's volleyball team is coached by John Cook (2000-present). The program has won three national titles, in 1995, 2000, and 2006. In 1995 the Cornhuskers capped off a 32-1 season by defeating the Texas Longhorns 3 games to 1 in the national championship game. The second national championship came in 2000, when the Huskers completed a 34-0 season by beating the Wisconsin Badgers for the championship 3 games to 2. The Huskers won their third national championship in 2006 with at 33-1 record by beating the Stanford Cardinal in 4 sets. They reached the championship match in 2005, but fell to the University of Washington in three sets.

Nebraska volleyball is a popular spectator sport in the state. In 2005, an NCAA volleyball-record 13,252 tickets were presold for the NCAA regionals. The vast majority of these sales are attributed to Nebraska volleyball fans, as the games was played at Qwest Center Omaha. On December 16, 2006, this record was broken when Nebraska played Stanford in the National Championship game with 17,209 in attendance.

The team plays their home matches in the Nebraska Coliseum. During the 2004 season, the Huskers averaged a home attendance of 4,336. Nebraska has an all-time record of 419-30 in the Coliseum.Team records The Nebraska Cornhuskers Women's Volleyball team holds 3 NCAA team records:

Soccer

Nebraska became the first team in the Big Eight to create women's soccer as a varsity sport in the 1995 season. John Walker was hired to coach the soccer team in April 1994 and was determined to get the Huskers into an NCAA tournament by 2008. During his second season, he led the Huskers to the NCAA tournament followed by an addition nine consecutive trips to the tournament, with his first miss in the 2006 season. The team has reached the Sweet sixteen eight times and to the Elite Eight on two occasions. John Walker has earned NSCAA/Umbro National Coach-of-the-Year, NSCAA/Umbro Central Region Coach-of-the-Year and Big 12 Conference Coach-of-the-Year over his tenure at Lincoln. The Husker program has created many professional athletes that went on to the WUSA.

Winter varsity sports

Men's basketball

While the University of Nebraska has experienced varying amounts of success for their intercollegiate athletic programs, men's basketball has been an exception. Nebraska has not won a conference title since sharing the Big Seven Conference with Kansas and Kansas State in 1950, and they haven't won an outright conference title since going a perfect 12-0 through the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletics Association in 1916.

Nebraska has a distinction of one of the few major conference programs never to win a single game in the NCAA Tournament. In fact, in the over 90 years of varsity competition at the University, the first trip to the NCAA Tournament for Nebraska did not come until 1986. Much of the team's success came under the tenure of Danny Nee, head coach from 1987 to 2000. Nee is the team's all-time winningest head coach with a record of 254-190. Nee led the Cornhuskers to five of their six NCAA Tournament appearances, six bids to the National Invitation Tournament, including the 1996 NIT Championship.

The current head coach is Doc Sadler. Barry Collier, who led Nebraska from 2000 to August 2006, left to become athletic director at Butler University. He previously had been Butler's head coach from 1989 to 2000.

Women's basketball

Women’s basketball started as a club sport in 1970 and five years later it became a varsity sport when scholarships were offered. George Nicodemus was the first head coach and had a 22-9 record in his first season, taking the Huskers to the AIAW where they lost in the second round of the tournament. Five different head coaches would be hired after Nicodemus left the program in 1971 until 1986 when Angela Beck took a stable head coach position. Beck led the Huskers to their first NCAA bid after winning the Big 8 championship in 1988. She led the Huskers back to the NCAA in 93 and 96. She left the program in 1996 to pursue other opportunities and was replaced by Paul Sanderford. Sanderford led the Huskers to a NCAA sub-regional in 1998 and 1999 and received a third consecutive NCAA bid in 2000. Connie Yori became the head coach in 2002 and has led the Huskers to WNIT in 2004, 2005, 2006, and NCAA in 2007 and 2008.

Women’s gymnastics

The Nebraska Women’s Gymnastics team was first established in 1975. After the first season, the school hired head coach Karen Balke to lead a team of all freshman and sophomores for one year. Judy Schalk took over as head coach in 1977 until 1983. She led the Huskers to five conference titles and to one AIWA bid. In 1983, Rick Walton was hired to serve as head coach and led the Huskers to there first NCAA women’s gym event title when Michele Bryant came in first place on the vault. He captured four straight Big 8 championship titles and led the huskers to the NCAAs four times in a row. After the 1993 season, Rick Walton left the program and Dan Kendig was brought in. In his first year he became the Big 12 coach of the year after leading the Huskers to a Big 8 championship. In 1997 the Huskers reached the Super Six Finals for the first time by beating #1 ranked Utah. Kendig was named national coach of the year in 1999 after earning 6 conference championships in a row. Kendig's team has won four event titles when Heather Brink won two NCAA event titles in all around and vault in 2000 and Richelle Simpson won the all around title and the floor exercise title in 2003. Currently the Huskers are going back to the NCAA for the ninth year in a row after winning the Big 12 championship for the eighth time. The huskers have never had a losing season.

Bill Straub was hired as the full time bowling coach and has led the team to three more IBC titles in 1997, 1999 and 2001.

Baseball

Nebraska baseball has seen a resurgence in the past decade. After many years of being a perennial doormat, the 2000 Huskers became the first team in school history to advance to the Super Regionals in the NCAA tournament. In 2001 and 2002, the Huskers made their first and second appearances in the College World Series. Much of the success of these teams and the teams that have followed is due to the efforts of Dave Van Horn, who compiled a record of 214-92 while leading Huskers from 1998-2002. After the 2002 season, Van Horn left to accept a position at his alma mater, Arkansas; assistant coach Mike Anderson became head coach. In 2005, the Huskers had their most successful season ever, going 57-15 and advancing to the College World Series for the third time in five years.

In 2002, the Huskers moved into the friendly confines of Hawks Field at Haymarket Park, widely considered one of the best collegiate baseball facilities in the country. Since this move, the Huskers have seen their attendance break numerous records. In the 2005 Super Regional against Miami, an overflow crowd of 8,711 watched as Nebraska clinched their third trip to the College World Series.

While 8 pitchers from 2007 left for the draft, the 2008 Cornhuskers team is the youngest for Mike Anderson with 15 newcomers. They started off with an 11-3 record and started strong in the Big 12 winning their first 4 series. They won 7 of their 9 series going 17-9-1 in conference play. From February 29 to March 18, the Huskers earned a 14 game win streak, the longest since 2000. Like '06, they slumped at the end goin 2-4 in the postseason and losing their own regional. They went 29-5-1 at home and 11-9 away from Hawks Field. They were ranked as high as #5 and ended in 3rd place in the Big 12. Jake Opitz, Mitch Abeita, and Johnny Dorn were selected to the All Big 12 First Team as Dorn also earned 3rd Team All-American honors.

The past four regionals that Nebraska has hosted they have managed to reach the super regionals once which was in 2005.

Fans

In addition to the performance both on and off the field, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are also known for having proclaimed their fans "The greatest fans in college football". Above the main entrance to Memorial Stadium is the inscription "Through these gates pass the greatest fans in college football. In 2001, President George W. Bush observed, "I can't go without saying how impressed I am by the Nebraska fan base. Whether it be for women's volleyball or football, there's nothing like the Big Red.

Football fans are known as The Sea of Red due to the overwhelming amount of red they wear. They have sold out every home game since November 3, 1962. The large crowds not only cheer for their team but will also applaud the visiting team as they leave the field at the end of the game. Nebraska fans are known for following their team on the road, such as in 2002 when 60,000 fans traveled to Pasadena to watch the Huskers play the Miami Hurricanes in the Rose Bowl and in 2000 when Cornhusker fans took over Notre Dame Stadium.
