One of Nebraska football's best-known traditions is that of the Blackshirts, which is the nickname for the Huskers' defensive unit. The nickname is derived from the black pullover jerseys worn by defensive players in practice in 1964, which contrasted against offensive players' jerseys. The black pullovers were purchased by assistant Mike Corgan, who was known for his ability to locate bargains. Today, the tradition lives on and is seen as a sign of respect and success. Throw the Bones and show your love for Nebraska Cornhuskers football with this classic tee!
