As the week unfolds, and people are climbing back up the cliff’s in Nebraska, their football enthusiasts are rekindling their hopes. Despite the harsh setback last week, anticipation is building for Saturday’s home opener, where victory is the only possible outcome for the Huskers!
Of course Nebraska will win this game outright, it’s just going to be more of a nail-biter than most of you expect.
Considering Nebraska’s recent struggles in the passing game against Southern Illinois, I’m not optimistic about a sudden change.
