Big Red Today Podcast, Sept. 6
Big Red Today Omaha World-Herald

World-Herald staff writers Jon Nyatawa and Sam McKewon break down Nebraska’s nonconference clash with UCLA in the latest edition of “The Big Red Today Podcast.”

How will the Bruins try to slow down Taylor Martinez? Sam has an idea. Jon was unimpressed by UCLA’s defensive start against Rice last week. Both writers think the Huskers and Bruins are in store for a shootout Saturday. Jon’s never been to Los Angeles, so Sam goes into tour-guide mode before they wrap up by scanning through the weekend’s college football slate trying to find the best chance for an upset (Uh-oh, Big Ten).

Also discussed: The battle for the CyHawk Trophy and Georgia-Missouri.

Duration: 33 minutes, 2 seconds

  1. LA Husker says:


    Make sure to show Jon the enlightened culture of Crenshaw Blvd. There are many historical landmarks there. Make sure to wear ALL Husker red when on your walking tour of the sights. The local population loves sign language. If you make an ‘N’ with you fingers and wave at people, you will be well received.

    God podcast this week. Love the Inner Space reference…”I’m possessed!” Who cares about LA culture, the most lost people in the world. Go Big Red.
