Husker football great, Johnny Rodgers, wasn't present Tuesday afternoon, when the Nebraska pardons board granted him a hearing.
In 1971 Rodgers was sentenced to two years probation for a gas station robbery the year before.
He's requesting a full pardon for the felony.
The 62–year–old Heisman Trophy winner says the crime has been hanging over him since his conviction.
His hearing is set for November 14th.
