Michael Rose-Ivey, DaiShon Neal and Mohamed Barry are the three players seen in the photo above taking a knee.
In recent weeks, following San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s lead, college football and NFL players have been kneeling during the national anthem prior to games. Other teams and players have participated in other forms of protests as well.
It is safe to say the trend of protesting the national anthem has reached the college football world.
Nebraska is playing visitor to Northwestern and the Huskers lead the Wildcats 9-7 late in the second quarter.
