Mike RozierFormer Husker I-back great Mike Rozier will be honored at halftime of Saturday’s Nebraska-Texas game at Memorial Stadium for his upcoming induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Rozier officially will become the 13th Nebraska player inducted on Dec. 5, 2006 at the 49th Annual Awards Dinner in New York City. 

Chuck Neinas, representing the National Football Foundation, will be on hand for Saturday’s on-campus salute, while four other Husker greats—each a Hall of Famer—will stand alongside Rozier during halftime festivities. Former Nebraska Head Coach Tom Osborne, who coached Rozier from 1981 to 1983, will be joined by Forrest Behm (1938-40), Rich Glover (1970-72) and Johnny Rodgers (1970-72) in celebrating the induction of NU’s leading career rusher
