Nebraska is known as Outland U because they have brought home the trophy so many times. There was a streak of three years in a row where a Husker won the award. Dave Rimington is the only person to have won the award twice.  Also, the award ceremony is held annually in Omaha, NE, at the Doubletree hotel.

The Outland Trophy watch list typically comes out around the first day of summer (June 21st) and it is very likely that the Husker's will have at least one guy on that list.  Jared Crick and Mike Caputo are the most likely to be on this list.
