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.
When Nebraska and Oregon square off on Saturday, there will be another rivalry on hand. That will be the sibling rivalry between Drew Brown and his brother Reed. Drew kicks for Nebraska, while Reed runs track for Oregon.
So, will Reed cheer for Nebraska or Oregon? That has yet to be determined.
Air quality improves
Some good news from Oregon: Air quality from wildfires has improved in the Eugene area from ‘hazardous’ to ‘unhealthy’ Wednesday morning. Hopefully it continues to improve ahead of the game on Saturday.
Reason for dyed hair
Why did the Blackshirts dye their hair? For team unity, of course. That and more from Wednesday’s Land of 10 mailbag.
A jersey retired
Nebraska announced its plan to retire Jordan Larson’s jersey on Sept. 29 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Well deserved for the volleyball All-American and Olympian who is one of the greatest Huskers athletes of all-time.
Friends or foes?
Coach Mike Riley will have some friends at the game on Saturday. However, they’ll be rooting hard for the Ducks. Ouch.
To be determined
Is Nebraska football making progress under Riley? ESPN’s Mitch Sherman took a look at where the Huskers are now 27 games into the coach’s tenure.
