Conor's father, Terry, was a four-year letterwinner at defensive tackle for Nebraska from 1990 to 1994. A two-time first-team Academic All-American, Terry Connealy was a first-team All-Big Eight selection as a junior before earning second-team all-conference accolades as a senior, when Nebraska went 13-0 and claimed the 1994 national championship.
