The Ultimate Husker Fullback Bracket: The Championship

It is Rathman vs Makovicka (yes, you have to click to find out which one)

We have made it to the end! Two fullbacks are left to battle for the title of ultimate Husker fan-favorite-blocker-occasional-ball-carrier-even-more-occasional-receiver.

Your finalists are Tom Rathman and Joel Makovicka.

Again, there were a handful of FBs that could have been here and no one would have batted an eye. This was a really fun bracket (Thanks Brew!)

That said, I know who I’m voting for. How about you?!?

Polls close Thursday evening.

The Championship

2) Tom Rathman – His 881 yds in 1985 is the best ever for a Husker FB (7.5 per!). Hitting the century mark 4X is also best ever for a Husker FB. ( bio)


5) Joel Mackovica – 2X AAA. Dr. Mackovica, D.P.T., tied for the FB record of 9 TDs in one season (’97), set the FB record with 3 TDs in one game (OU, ’97). ( bio)

Tom Rathman

This one is more about his time with the 49ers, but I still think you’ll enjoy it.

Joel Makovicka
