COINS and Tokens
1965 Big 8 Champions

Not in my collection, but a couple of different views of a sharp coin commemorating the 1965 season.  Displayed as a coin, as a keychain with a hole drilled into the top, and as a paperweight. 

It references the fact that we played Alabama in the Orange Bowl, but no score.  This was the first of three meetings with Bear Bryant's Tide over the next five years, with 'Bama winning the National Championship following the '65 Orange Bowl.  Nebraska won the National Championship following the last meeting, a 38-6 drubbing of Alabama in the '72 Orange Bowl.

Thanks to Chad Johns for the last two photos
