  • After the season

    Coach Stiehm's first year at Nebraska seemed like a continuation of the relative success of the program's past several seasons. The Cornhuskers' program total improved to 123-46-10 (.715), while the conference overall record improved to 7-2-2 (.727). Nebraska and Iowa were named Co-Champions of the Missouri Valley conference.
