9-3-1 was failure then but who wouldn’t take that now? My how times have changed.I remember all of the games from that year because it was my first year writing for an internet sports magazine.
The two games I vividly remember from that year were the A&M game and the Texas game. A&M because that Saturday was the first we'd spent with my wife's estranged father. He was born and raised in Oklahoma, was intentionally a jerk to me for the entire time we knew him and thoroughly enjoyed A&M beating us. Very child like.
The Halloween Texas game I remember because we'd just moved into a new house and didn't have cable yet so I had to go to a local sports bar to watch the game. This was in Parker Colorado, so a Nebraska fan watching Nebraska lose in a Colorado sports bar was also thoroughly enjoyed by others.
Also of note, that was the first year since I'd been watching Husker football (1970) that we lost 4 games. 1976 NU went 9-3-1.
