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 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.
