Autzen Stadium can be ‘very disruptive’ for Huskers; last time Nebraska wore red on the road

Autzen Stadium-Nebraska football

Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Huskers football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Very disruptive

Most of Nebraska’s football staff coached at Oregon State. That means most know what to expect from Oregon fans at Autzen Stadium on Saturday and from the noise being piped into Nebraska’s practice, they’re expecting it to be ”very disruptive.”

It was 1976 …

That’s the last time Nebraska wore their red home jerseys on the road. That Sept. 11 matchup in Baton Rouge against LSU ended in a tie, but the Huskers are hoping for a win against Oregon on Saturday.

Watching the weather

Oregon has been battling dangerous wildfires that have resulted in hazardous smoke in the area. It could affect games this weekend if the weather doesn’t cooperate soon.

Back home for IMG

Brendan “Bookie” Radley-Hiles and his IMG Academy teammates have been on the road for the last two weeks. They were scheduled to back home this week — you might be surprised to learn that Bookie prefers to play on the road — but IMG’s home game against Baltimore’s St. Frances Academy was postponed because of Hurricane Irma.

The loneliest number

One might be the loneliest number, but it’s exactly how many votes the Huskers received in this week’s AP Top 25. There’s always next week!

Tom Osborne’s time

What if Tom Osborne had accepted a job elsewhere before becoming Bob Devaney’s successor? It could have happened, and Hail Varsity’s Mike Babcock took a look at the history behind the decision.

Over the hump

Need help getting over the hump of this week? This video of Nebraska’s tunnel walk (and Husker Prayer) should do the trick. If only the Huskers were at home again this week.

Oversleep and miss a recent Big Red Rising? No worries. We have all our past editions here.
