Nebraska Cornhuskers Logo

Mascot Logo (1974-2003)

What is this Nebraska Cornhuskers Logo?

Herby Husker logo that evolved out of Nebraska`s trip to the Cotton Bowl in 1974. Artist Dirk West of Lubbock, Texas, designed a Cornhusker cartoon for the Botton Bowl press headquarters that caught the eye of Husker SID Don Bryant. Later, Bryant contacted West for permission to use the cartoon and West expressed a desire to refine his original cartoon and improve some of the character`s features. As a result, West was commissioned to draw an original Cornhusker cartoon character who then served as a mascot for all Husker men`s teams. West`s concept of Nebraska football was appropriate -a burly, rugged, and confident fellow who was proud of both the athletic and the agricultural traditions of the University of Nebraska.
