This is a streak that belongs to the fans, created by the loyalty of those like 90-year-old Betty Graham, those like Milton and Ann, those kids with the caramel apples.
The fans kept filling the place even when there was a blizzard, even during a 5-7 season. And they clapped for the foe at game's end no matter what the scoreboard read.
Bo Pelini is in just his second year as Nebraska head coach, but he already knows about the magic on Vine Street.
"It's something to be proud of that opposing teams, opposing coaches, everybody comes out of here saying, 'Wow, it's different here than any place else.'"
That's just what you do here. This is Nebraska.
So ask again. Why does the 90-year-old still do it? Why will she be there again Saturday?
"It's loyalty, it's the kind of people that live there," she said.
"It's in your blood."
How could you fathom then what we celebrate this weekend?
Three-hundred straight Husker football sellouts. Ten presidents have been in the Oval Office in that span. You've met The Beatles. You've seen a man on the moon. You've purchased a disco ball. You've wondered who shot J.R. You've worn stonewashed jeans. You've burned the photos of you in those jeans. You've worried about Y2K. You've laughed about Y2K. You've cried when the two towers fell and the world changed.
You've kept coming to that stadium. Seen the glory, seen the pain, seen the sleet, seen the rain.
A few heartaches. A few cuss words. So many wins. So many memories.
