    Why I said top 3. If 95 had played 15 games we would have trounced 15 teams. 95 didn't have one close game. LSU had a couple.

    Washington St was only 14 points and they weren’t ranked..

    Alabama and Auburn were.

    They struggled with Texas and Florida. You obviously didn't watch those games.

    Touché, but we won’t take in consideration beating three top 8 teams soundly at seasons end..

    Head to head they would beat the 95 team by 30 pts. How can you not even see the huge difference in talent?

    I'm not here to argue about LSU's schedule, it was plenty tough, but they could have easily lost 4 games this year. Take Burrow off that team and they would have lost 4 games IMO.

    Legacy[edit]
    Due to their performance against Florida, victories over four teams that finished in the top 10 (by an average score of 49–18), consistent dominance (smallest margin of victory was 14 points, trailed only once all season, rushed for 51 touchdowns and 400 yards per game while allowing only 6 rushing touchdowns all season and 78 rushing yards per game), their record-setting offensive performance, and their statistically impressive defense throughout the season, the 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers are widely regarded as the greatest team in college football history. The team set Division 1-A records by averaging 7.0 yards per rushing attempt, allowing zero quarterback sacks, and allowing five punt returns (for 12 yards) over the entire season. The Cornhuskers average margin of victory was over 38 points, the largest of any Division 1-A team since World War II, despite regularly resting starters after halftime. Analysts often make comparisons to other recent highly regarded champions, such as the 2001 Miami Hurricanes and the 2004 USC Trojans.[3] Such comparisons, as noted by the experts themselves, are nearly impossible to make, as rankings vary from evaluation to evaluation. The 1994 and 1995 Nebraska teams, which went a combined 25–0, remain the only undefeated and untied back-to-back national champions since Oklahoma in 1955 and 1956. In 2011, the 1995 Cornhuskers were named by Playboy Magazine as the greatest college football team of the Playboy era (since 1957).[4]

    You do realize they would still get ran out of the stadium by 45 pts if both teams played by today’s rules?

    People can argue stats, margins of victory, etc. until we're blue in the face.

    I made my assertion based on these things....

    1) The 2019 SEC is a stronger conference than the 1995 Big 8.

    2) The teams that LSU beat this year had a combined win % of .600. The teams Nebraska beat had a combined .539 win %, so Nebraska beating people worse then than LSU did now is kind of irrelevant.

    3) Players today are stronger and faster (and probably bigger and faster on the lines) than in 1995. Just a fact. I doubt the ranking you shared takes that into account.

    Therefore, if the 2019 LSU team lined up and played the 1995 Huskers, while both are in their primes, my money is on LSU...and I'll give you 10 points.

    LSU deserves a spot alongside nebraska 71, nebraska 95, and miami 01. If OSU had won the whole thing I'd say the same about them. They both had some of the most impressive seasons I've witnessed, which goes back to the mid 80s.

    That being said, it's stupid to say that a team this year would beat one from 25 years ago. Of course they would, but that doesnt mean they are the best team ever.

    1) 5 of the 14 SEC teams where in the top 25... In 1995 half of the Big 8 were ranked in the top 10...

    Math here tells me you’re wrong on this one.

    This players are so much better, stronger and faster BS is pure crap. Let me throw out some names who were on the teams we beat. Peyton Manning. HOF QB. Warren Sapp and Ray Lewis HOF defenders. I'm going to add to this list but you're telling me these NFL Hall of famers are not good enough to compete with the bigger, faster and stronger players of this "modern" age of football?? Get the **** out of here with that bullshit. Lol

    You can't seriously believe that players in general from 1995 are equal in athleticism as players in 2020. If so, where is the point of demarcation? Could the 4 horsemen compete with players from 2020? Or is it limited to 1990, 1980, 1970?

    Are you kidding? So the NFL HOFer's I mentioned couldn't cut it in todays CFB? Are you that dense? Ray Lewis and Sapp?? Manning. Leonard Little, Al Wilson, Jamal Lewis. Kevin Carter. Buy a clue. I'm not talking about 100 years ago genius. 25 isn't that big a difference.

    You're comparing a 30 year old to a 20 year old. Could warren sapp have been as effective in the NFL as a college junior as he was as a 10 year veteran? How many super bowls does Peyton Manning lead his team to as a 21 year old? You are pushing a fallacy. Unless you're willing to say that the 71 huskers could beat the 2019 Tigers, you have to admit that the level of talent has improved over time.

    WTF are you talking about? I'm talking about the same players who were that great in COLLEGE that translated to the NFL. And once again I'm not saying 40 or 50 years ago. 25 years. I'm pointing out how much NFL talent was on the teams that NU beat in the 90's. Read.

    I can buy that to a point, but I'll just throw out a couple of examples for a comparison. If you want to argue that guys like Lawrence Phillips and Ahman Green were small, slow, or weak compared to now you would get laughed out of here. There wasn't a running back in last nights game in the same stratosphere as either guy. You can make a point about most teams back then, but Nebraska was huge and very fast. That's the reason they flat out destroyed people.

    I didn't talk about rankings. I talked about winning percentages of opponents.

    Maybe you need to brush up on your reading comprehension.

    Ya, Ahman and his 4.2 and L.P. and his 4.3 at 210-220 lbs is not big enough or fast enough for these millennial idiots and their "modern" age of football. Lol

    I didn't say that Phillips and Green were weak compared to now. I said players now overall are stronger and faster...or at a minimum just faster. Not the same as saying someone is weak.

    I'd also argue that neither Frazier nor Wuerffel are in the same stratosphere as Lawrence or Burrow as QBs.

    Did you or Did you not say that the SEC was a stronger conference than the Big 8?

    My comprehension is fine comparing 8 teams to 14..

    According to www.nflcombineresults.com, Ahman was a 4.4.

    And, again....in general, stronger and faster, as a whole.. In other words, that is collectively, not just one person at a position on one team.

    A bottom feeder team in the 2019 SEC would beat a bottom feeder Big 8 team from 25 years ago by 2-3 touchdowns. That's what I meant.

    If that is what you meant than you can’t say I can’t comprehend...If you have 14 teams compared to 8..

    You than take the 3 best teams away in the conference and the 3 worst teams away...

    Comprehend that..

    What a ridiculous statement. This LSU team while great is not the most dominant of all time. Im biased on the 95 Huskers so I won’t go there. 2001 Miami with there ridiculous talent would have beat both those teams last night.
