Photos: Former Nebraska Heisman Winner Johnny Rodgers Stopped By The Huskers' Practice Today

The Nebraska football team was in the presence of one the greatest players in college football history this afternoon. 

Johnny Rodgers, who won the 1972 Heisman Trophy while playing for the Huskers, stopped by the team's practice on Wednesday. 

He even did the Heisman pose with new Nebraska coach Mike Riley.
