Item Description

Watch the November 16th Nebraska vs. Michigan State game from Seat 1 and 2 in the 1st row of Section 19. To complete the "Game Day" experience, included is a variety of Husker tailgate items, an autographed photo, and a personal tour of the Heisman and Outland Trophy areas in the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex and The Hewitt Center, which house an amazing collection of Husker trophies, photos, and memorabilia. These areas are located near the equipment, exercise, and locker rooms for the football team and the athlete's dining room, the Training Table. So, you might even get the change to meet current or former Husker athletes.

A Sioux Falls native, Larry Jacobson broke onto the national scene during his junior season, as the Huskers secured their first Big Eight Conference title, an Orange Bowl win, and the 1970 national championship. Larry and the Huskers extended their success the following year with an undefeated season, including a victory over the Oklahoma Sooners - still referred to by many as the "Game of the Century" - and decisive 38-6 trouncing over Alabama in the 1972 Orange Bowl, earning Nebraska their second-straight national title. Following a dominant senior performance, the Washington D.C. Touchdown Club named Larry their lineman of the year, awarding him the Knute Rockne Memorial Award. The Houston Rotary Club selected him as a finalist for their Vince Lombardi Award, and he became Nebraska's first major award winner, capturing the Outland Trophy, which recognizes the nation's best interior lineman.

In the 1972 NFL Draft, Larry was selected 24th overall by the New York Giants and within weeks took over at a starting defensive tackle position, landing him on the cover of Sports Illustrated three times. But, during the 1975 season, he suffered a broken leg that ended his career. Larry has been named to the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame, Nebraska Football Hall of Fame, and the all-time Nebraska team. Nebraska retired his No. 75 jersey in 1994. And, last year the Charlotte Touchdown Club selected Larry as the recipient of its Bronko Nagurski Legends Award, which recognizes "the best of the best" of college football defensive players from the past 40 years.
