(Lincoln, Nebraska-AP) -- At least three Nebraska Cornhuskers say Saturday's game against Oklahoma holds a special significance.

Placekicker Josh Brown, nose tackle Jason Lohr and offensive lineman Jon Rutherford are all graduates of Oklahoma high schools.

All three turned down an offer to attend O-U in favor of Nebraska.

Brown says the game is a chance for him to back up his decision to go to Nebraska after graduating from Foyil High School.

Lohr was a prep All-American at Jenks while Rutherford graduated from Midwest City High School

Although Oklahoma was struggling when each came out of high school, none of the three believe they would have made a different decision had current Sooner coach Bob Stoops been in charge at the time.
