By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 5 days ago
The locals are restless in the heart of Husker Nation as the Big Red starts the season 1-2 for the first time since 1981. A tonic in the form of a win over the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles would be more than welcomed. Unfortunately, Nebraska finds itself without linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey again, this time due to groin injury while Josh Banderas is gutting things out with one of his...

Big Ten Week 4 Predictions: Michigan Battles BYU, Indiana and Maryland Look for Key Wins

By Steven Lassan, 11 months 6 days ago
The Big Ten’s Week 4 slate is lacking in terms of depth with intriguing matchups, but Saturday’s BYU-Michigan contest should be one of the top games from the early round of kickoffs.

I often find myself watching college football games and wondering if a certain coach could do better — or at the very least — be a better fit elsewhere. Plenty of coaches have success wherever they go, but that doesn't make some of the stops awkward or eventually stale. I've put together a list of five successful college coaches, who despite their success...

He was a senior-to-be, one of few near locks to start and hopefully could take some of the young guns under his wing. Perhaps those who voted for the lineman are having second thoughts following the Huskers’ gut-wrenching 36-33 overtime loss to the Miami Hurricanes. There were plenty of...

An Open Letter to the Concerned Nebraska Football Fan

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 11 months 1 week ago
To whom it may concern, I knew we’d have this talk at some point during the season. I was hoping it wouldn’t be this soon, but part of me is glad it is. The Cornhuskers have lost two games that they didn’t have to this year and that’s tough. BYU was a solid comeback effort to be lost on a gut punch pass. Miami, well, you gotta admit that was one heck of a...

The 5 Most Important Games in the Miami vs. Nebraska Rivalry

By Aaron Tallent, 11 months 1 week ago
If not for a successful Hail Mary by BYU, this week’s Nebraska/Miami matchup would garner more enthusiasm. Nevertheless, both programs still have a great deal to prove in this third week of the season and what better time do so than in one of the most pivotal rivalries in college football. Nebraska and Miami have faced off 11 times over the years, with each program having exorcised...
