  •  Herbie Husker is the current mascot of the University of Nebraska football team. Herbie was created by artist Dirk West and first appeared on the cover of the Husker's media guide in 1974. Later, Herbie Husker became the University of Nebraska's official mascot. Herbie has gone through a few makeovers, the most recent coming before the 2003 college football season. Until 2003 he was dressed in denim coveralls, a red cowboy hat emblazoned with a large N, and has an ear of corn in his pocket. After the 2003 makeover, he now dons a red cowboy hat, red workshirt, blue jeans and workboots. This was done to update the overall appearance of the state's agricultural workers and general public. During halftime of the 2006 Capital One Bowl, Herbie was named National Mascot of the year for 2005.
