Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bill Jennings (c. 1918 - June 8, 2002) was an American football player and coach. He served as the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1957 to 1961. He coached the Huskers for five losing seasons, compiling a 15-34-1 record. His best seasons were 1959 and 1960, when the Huskers were 4-6 both years. His record in the Big Eight Conference was 8-24 and his Husker teams never won more than two conference games per season. Among Jennings's most notable upsets was the ending of Bud Wilkinson's 74-straight conference victories. The Cornhuskers beat the Oklahoma Sooners, 17-14, at Nebraska's 1959 homecoming game on Halloween. Jennings followed up a second consecutive win the following year with a 25-21 victory in Norman. The 1959 win was the first for Nebraska since 1942, and the 1959-1960 wins were the first consecutive victories over the Sooners since 1939-1942.show more
