Nebraska was a warm host to Michigan football team in 1911

By Staff

The records books show that the Michigan football team went to Nebraska in 1911 and played the Cornhuskers to a 6-6 tie.

Go to Greg Dooley's site, however, and you learn a little more. For instance, the Nebraska team made Michigan feel welcome, even playing some of the school's favorite songs and in 1911 there even as an "exhibition kickoff" to start the game. Not quite military jets, but interesting.

MVictors has more on the game, including a clip from the Michigan Daily's coverage of the game.
