Tom Osborne, 83, served as Nebraska’s head coach from 1973-97, posting a 255-49-3 record and winning three national championships. It sounds like his work also left a big mark on a young Meyer.
Meyer, who began his head coaching career in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) with the Bowling Green Falcons in 2001, has also won three national titles, two with the Florida Gators in 2006 and 2008, and the other with Ohio State in 2014.
During his Buckeye tenure, which lasted seven seasons from 2012-18, Meyer faced the Cornhuskers four times and won each contest.
Nebraska’s clash with Ohio State in Columbus will kick at 12 p.m. ET on FOX.
