The origin of the Cornhuskers nickname goes back to 1900. A sports writer named Charles Sherman began to call the Nebraska team the Cornhuskers after first hearing it related it Iowa. It caught on and has been used ever since.
Lincoln sportswriter Charles S. (Cy) Sherman provided the nickname. Sherman tired of referring to the Nebraska teams with such an unglamorous term as Bugeaters. Iowa had, from time to time, been called the Cornhuskers, and the name appealed to Sherman. Iowa partisans seemed to prefer Hawkeyes, so Sherman started referring to the Nebraska team as Cornhuskers, and the 1900 team was first to bear that label.
The team was first called Cornhuskers in 1899.
