    It looks like Nebraska will be night warriors this year. Not a bad thing at all as it will put them on the National stage and assuming that they win it can only help in the standings. Now if they look bad and lose it doesn’t matter because they won’t be in the standings anyway.

    Might be our only shot at playing in the Rose Bowl anytime soon.
