FILE - In this Jan. 3, 1996 file photo, Nebraska head football coach Tom Osborne stands between Nebraska's two National Championship trophies during the homecoming rally at the Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln, Neb. Osborne, the retired Nebraska coach isn’t getting drawn into arguments over how his 1990s teams that won three national championships in four years would fare against the Alabama teams that just accomplished the same feat. Osborne said Wednesday he admires what the Crimson Tide has done under Nick Saban. The Cornhuskers' 60-3 record from 1993-97 is the greatest five-year stretch in history. Alabama is 61-7 since 2008.
