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.
Oregon prep begins
Nebraska began its preparation for Oregon on Monday with a light practice that mostly focused on installation. Defensive coordinator Bob Diaco met with the media following practice, where he discussed participation patterns, a Garth Brooks song and that whole Saturday media debacle.
It’ll get better
At least that’s what former Nebraska defensive coordinator Charlie McBride thinks about the Blackshirts. He spoke with Land of 10’s Sean Keeler about Diaco, the defense and the transition to a 3-4.
Nebraska had quite a few top recruits on campus this past Saturday. What did they think of the Huskers and Memorial Stadium? All good things, it appears.
The Huskers released the depth chart for the matchup with Oregon on Monday. Spoiler alert: There’s absolutely nothing different about it.
The line keeps moving
Vegas isn’t sure what to make of the matchup between Nebraska and Oregon on Saturday. Currently, the Ducks are favored by 14 points, but the line keeps on moving.
The other side
What is the Oregon side of things saying about Saturday? The Oregonian previewed the matchup. An interesting fact from the preview? The Huskers now are 9-0 under coach Mike Riley when rushing for more than 200 yards.
Bigger than football
Some things are just bigger than football. That’s why when Nebraska’s student section had a chance to support Wendy Anderson, the wife of Arkansas State coach Blake Anderson, it didn’t hesitate.
There are bigger things than football, as much as we love the sport.
