Nebraska Cornhusker Legend Tom Osborne visits Eastern Iowa

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Legendary Nebraska football coach Tom Osborne was in Cedar Rapids on Monday to speak at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet. Osborne who became the Husker Athletic Director in 2008 held a question and answer session with the media. Osborne addressed the question of the upcoming Big Ten rivalry between Nebraska and the Iowa Hawkeyes by saying the rivalry is not a sure thing.

Osborne said, "It seems like a lot of people are saying well, this will be a rivalry. This is natural and so on. Rivalries usually occur when you don't declare them rivalries. They occur over time. There has to be a certain level of excellence on both sides, and I suspect that eventually it will be a rivalry."

The Hawks and Huskers meet on the gridiron the day after Thanksgiving in Lincoln.
