On Sept. 15 the Huskers welcomed a new member into the Nebraska football hall of fame. That member was Zac Taylor, the Huskers’ quarterback for all of the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
Taylor holds, or is tied in, the Husker records for completions in a game (36), most attempts in a game without an interception (55), single game yards per completion (26.33) and most touchdowns in a season (26). He also has the second-highest mark for yards in a season, notched during his senior year with 3,197 yards.
Although he spent his first two years at Wake Forest and Butler County Community College and didn’t join the Huskers until his junior year, he made his presence known.
In 2005, he led the Huskers to a win over Michigan in the Alamo Bowl. In 2006, Nebraska snagged the Big 12 North division title with Taylor at the helm.
After his time at Nebraska, Taylor spent the summer before the 2007 season with the Buccaneers but ultimately didn’t make the cut. He spent the remainder of that season playing in Canada before transitioning to coaching where he remains today. Taylor serves as the Los Angeles Rams’ assistant wide receivers coach.
