One of the bright spots Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium happened prior to Nebraska's game against Northern Illinois. The 2017 class of the Nebraska Football Hall of Fame was introduced to the crowd before Saturday's contest.
And one of the inductees in the 2017 class is former Husker quarterback, Zac Taylor. Despite only playing two seasons at Nebraska, Taylor is one of the most accomplished signal callers in Husker history. Taylor is third all-time at Nebraska with 5,850 passing yards.
"I feel really honored, really surprised when I first learned about because there are so many great people who are involved, great champions who have played here." said Taylor, who played for Nebraska from 2005-06.
Taylor started 26 games for the Huskers at quarterback and ended his career at Nebraska being named the 2006 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year. Taylor now works on the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Rams as an assistant wide receivers coach.
