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.

The Cornhuskers didn’t have the best first half of football last Saturday (10/18/14) against Northwestern, but pulled it all together in the final 30 minutes with 24 unanswered points to run away from the Wildcats, 38-17. The 2nd half comeback was led largely by a swarming Blackshirt defense, although senior I-Back Ameer Abdullah’s career-high 4 touchdowns really sealed the deal.

With the win, Big Red improves its conference record to 2-1 in the Big-10, and to 6-1 on the season making NU bowl eligible for the seventh consecutive year under Head Coach Bo Pilini. This week, the 19th ranked Cornhuskers return to Memorial Stadium for their only home game in October, when they host the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers in an early Saturday morning match up. Kickoff is set for 9AM, but be sure to tune in at 8:30AM for the Husker Pre-Game Show with your hosts Greg Sharpe, Matt Davison and Lane Grindle right here on Alternative Talk 1150… and Let’s Go Big Red!
