Huskers Escape Early Scare

According to the Football Power Index McNeese St had a 1% chance to beat Nebraska on Saturday. But if you ask McNeese St, they felt they had just as good a chance to win the game as the Huskers did, or at least they definitely played like it.

In a game many expected Nebraska to have plenty of symmetry from the previous weeks dominance, the Huskers decided to give fans anxiety attacks with a head scratching performance. The Cowboys took the Huskers to the wire in a game where it took a miraculous run by Ameer Abdullah in the waning moments to prevent overtime.

Huskers Roll Versus Owls

Heading into the Huskers home opener versus Florida Atlantic I had very controlled optimism -- and for good reason. I knew the team returned a starting quarterback that went 7-1 last season. I knew the team had a bevy of running backs that rivaled any in the country. I knew the defensive line was amongst the top in the Big Ten. And I knew the linebacking core was fast and hungry.

But would it all transfer onto the field?

The Big Ten's Opportunity For Respect

The Big Ten Football conference can gain some national respect if they chalk up some victories in a few marquee non-conference games this season. And it all starts with Wisconsin as the lead off batter, when they clash against LSU on August 30th at Camp Randall Stadium.

A victory for Wisconsin in this matchup will not only put the entire nation on notice about this year's Badgers team, it will also send a resounding roar across the football landscape that maybe--just maybe--the Big Ten Football Conference is back.
