Former Nebraska standout Grant Wistrom has an impressive ring collection.

Grant Wistrom dominated the football field during his time at the University of Nebraska and he has the rings to prove it. The former No. 6 overall pick from the 1998 NFL Draft showcased his ring collection from his tenure with Nebraska. With the help of his wife, Melissa, Wistrom's 14 rings can be seen on display.

During Wistrom's four years with the Cornhuskers, Nebraska won three national championships (1994, 1995, 1997). So that accounts for three of Wistrom's rings, but what about the other nine?

The other rings came from bowl games, conference titles, and individual awards, according to Wistrom.

For players and coaches with four championships, "one for the thumb" is a popular phrase. Well, Wistrom has enough rings for all ten fingers, and then some.
