In honor of celebrating 150 years worth of college football, CBS Sports put together its All-Time All-American team. One school that was represented well was Nebraska.
The Cornhuskers have rich history when it comes to college football, but the program has seen somewhat of a decline in recent years. However, CBS Sports didn’t neglect all the great players that once played for the team.
Nebraska has four players earning first-team spots on the All-Time All-American team. The former Cornhuskers to receive the honor are Tommie Frazier, Dave Rimington, Ndamukong Suh and Johnny Rodgers.
Frazier wasn’t considered the best thrower of the football, yet the dual-threat quarterback led Nebraska to back-to-back national championships.
Suh and Rimington also made CBS Sports’ All-American team due to their production in the trenches. After all, the NCAA created the Rimington Trophy to honor the country’s best center each season.
As for Rodgers, he earned recognition as an all-purpose player and punt returner.

Nebraska also had former players on the second team.
Offensive lineman Will Shields, defensive lineman Rich Glover and kicker Alex Henery were all part of the secondary squad.
It’s hard to argue against any players that made either the first or second team, especially considering how much success they had at the collegiate level.
The full teams can be seen on CBS Sports.
