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.

It was homecoming in Lincoln last Saturday (9/27/14), and Big Red certainly rose to the occasion by knocking off Illinois 45-14 in front of over 91,000 fans in Memorial Stadium.  The Cornhuskers were once again led by Heisman hopeful Ameer Abdullah who recorded his third 200-yard rushing game as NU amassed 624-yards in total offense. The Blackshirt defense also stepped up with several clutch plays and 3 picks to set up the offense with great field position.

By notching their first conference victory of the year, the 19th ranked Huskers are now 1-0 in the Big-10’s Western Division (5-0 on the season), and head to East Lansing this coming Saturday for a huge showdown against defending champions Michigan State.  Kickoff is set for 5PM, but be sure to tune in at 4:30PM 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!
