Big Red Football

nebraska_logoNebraska Cornhuskers Football On Alternative Talk 1150
Follow Big Red football again this year as Head Coach Bo Pelini is gunning for his 7th straight 9-win season. The Huskers will be led on offense by senior all-purpose running back Ameer Abdullah and sophomore quarterback Tommy Armstrong III. And, combined with an always tough Blackshirt defense anchored by All American Randy Gregory – it’s no surprise that Nebraska is once again expected to compete for the newly established Western Division title – and earn a berth to the Big-10 Conference championship game in December.

Big Red celebrated its 13 seniors last home game in front of an NCAA record 340 consecutive sellout at Memorial Stadium last Saturday (11/22/14) against Minnesota. And even though the Huskers once again got off to a good start, NU was unable to seal the deal as the Gophers came back to steal one late, 28-24. Sophomore QB Tommy Armstrong, Jr. let the Cornhusker attack by going 12-19 for 223 passing yards and one touchdown.

The disappointing loss at home drops Nebraska to 4-3 in conference play and to 8-3 on the season – and Coach Pelini must now rally the troops this week for a Friday morning showdown against the Iowa Hawkeyes in Iowa City. It’s a 9AM kickoff with the Husker pre-game show beginning at 8:30AM right here on Alternative Talk 1150… so Let’s Go Big Red!
