No. 16 Nebraska looks to start faster vs. Rutgers

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska goes into its game against Rutgers hoping to carry over the momentum from the second half of last week's game against Northwestern.

Video: Joe Tessitore Explains Why The SEC Is The Best Conference In College Football

Earlier this week, Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini made it clear that he thinks that ESPN (partially because of the SEC Network) is a bit biased when it comes to its coverage of the Southeastern Conference. Wednesday, network broadcaster Joe Tessitore joined Paul Finebaum on his radio show to explain exactly why he believes that the league hasn’t been “propped up” by the network...

Bo Pelini Has Finally Handed Out The Blackshirts To His Nebraska Defense

Seven games into its season, the Nebraska defense can now call itself “The Blackshirts,” the nickname given to the Huskers’ first-team unit and other key players beginning in the 1960s.  At today’s practice, Bo Pelini handed out the black practice jerseys to his defense, which allowed only 17 points to Northwestern following a seven-point second-half performance against...

Bo Pelini says the ESPN-SEC relationship is not good for college football

Before we get started, that’s the greatest sports picture of the year, right? College football is a universe filled with conflicts of interests and complex relationships.  Athletes and institutions, sponsors and scholarships, television networks and conferences. There’s a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” nature about the sport that always lies somewhere beneath...

Bo Pelini doesn’t agree with ESPN’s relationship with the SEC

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has had his problems in the past with the Southern Eastern Conference. Before the start of the season, Pelini had a few things to say about Ole Miss recruiting practices. Now Pelini has another problem but it is with the conference as a whole along with the carrier of their network.

Records mean little to Abdullah if Neb doesn't win

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Ameer Abdullah says this is no time for him to celebrate his personal achievements, not with six weeks left in the regular season. So don't bother asking him what he thinks about being the first Nebraska player to post three 1,000-yard rushing seasons, or about becoming the school's No. 2 all-time leading rusher, or about scoring a career-high four touchdowns...

Nebraska Cornhuskers remind rest of B1G why they’re still contenders in 2014

Remember when Nebraska was a Top 15 team? It seems like ages ago that the Huskers were the class of the Big Ten West and a potential College Football Playoff contender. Everything was going fine, then it all came crashing down in the form of a 27-22 loss at Michigan State three weeks ago. Yet, following the bye week the question was how Nebraska would respond to the loss. Staring...

Nebraska returner Pierson-El stars on offense too

Nebraska's De'Mornay Pierson-El quickly established his reputation as one of the nation's top punt returners. This freshman can do more than special teams. Knowing that Pierson-El has returned two punts for touchdowns, Northwestern mostly kicked away from him Saturday. That didn't stop him from hurting the Wildcats in other ways in the Cornhuskers' 38-17 road...

Kenny Bell: greatest Nebraska Cornhuskers WR ALL TIME. PERIOD

Kenny Bell is the greatest NU wideout of all time. Seriously. Nebraska Cornhuskers football is a very proud program that has accomplished a lot of things. However, they really haven’t had a whole lot of standout receivers. Kenny Bell had 5 receptions for 89 yards tonight at Northwestern through three quarters. He finished with those numbers as the Huskers blew Northwestern out...

Bye Week In Nebraska: The Calm Before The Inevitable Storm

Nebraska had some issues snapping the ball during its loss against Michigan State Saturday night.
