Just in time for the season opener, UNL unveiled a tribute to a Husker legend.

A life-size bronze statue of the late great Bob Devaney now sits in the new East Stadium Plaza.

On the stadium's 90th anniversary season, Tom Osborne said they wanted to recognize the man who really built the stadium.

Devaney led the Huskers to back to back champions in 70 and 71. He died in 1997.
