5-7 bowl teams to be selected in order of academic rating

After a bad season on the field for Mike Riley's first Nebraska team, some good work in the classroom by the Huskers when Bo Pelini was coach will keep Big Red playing football this season.

No bowl bonus for Nebraska coaches if picked with 5-7 record

Nebraska Receiver Refuses To Tip Waiter, Brags About It On Twitter

On Monday evening, Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly made two boneheaded moves. 1. He decided not to tip a waiter because the waiter was “bashing on a team”, presumably his. 2. He posted it on social media in a show off manner. Brandon Reilly took this tweet down SOOOO fast. Cool move guy — Jake Fielder (@reddsix) December 1, 2015 Way to...

Nebraska finished a disappointing 5-7 in its first regular season under Mike Riley, but players aren’t going to let upset fans walk all over them. Junior wide receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat today, and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table. Rather than tip “Trey,” Reilly left him a note. Reilly...

WATCH: Nebraska's Brandon Reilly Makes Beautiful Catch Flling Down And Off His Foot

Nebraska was hoping to end a rough season on a high note with a third win in a row. After losing so many close games early in the season winning a third in the row would give the team reason to believe they were better than their record would indicate. However, win No. 3 would not come easy. No one else had managed to beat Iowa so if they were going to it would not be easy.Brandon...

Nebraska and Tommy Armstrong’s Struggles

To say that this season has been a step backwards for Nebraska would be an understatement. After getting fed up with winning nine games a year under Bo Pelini, the administration felt a change was needed to jumpstart a program that hasn’t been the same since the glory days of Tom Osborne. Enter stage left … Mike Riley. Under Riley Nebraska has looked like a team wandering the...

Nebraska (probably) ends forgettable season

“In the final analysis, I had to evaluate where Iowa was.” – Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst in 2014 before deciding to make the coaching change that ended up with Bo Pelini out and Mike Riley in. As humans, we all “burn the tape” in our lives. You’ll hear coaches mention it when a game is so abhorrent, nothing can be gleaned from watching it other than liver...

Video: Nebraska WR Brandon Reilly Makes Ridiculous Catch While On His Back

Some catches take an insane amount of concentration to pull down, and Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly made one of those Friday night against Iowa. Trailing 28-17, Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong launched a ball into tight coverage where it was knocked around–seemingly incomplete–before Reilly somehow maintained control while on his back. Wow. The Sports Daily’s Vine...

Nebraska’s Defensive Line Could Give Them An Edge Against Iowa

I think it’s all going to be alright. Yes, I mean the Cornhuskers have a chance to win three straight (maybe even four) and finish with a six or seven win season. This isn’t ideal, but if you told me that at the (3-6) mark, I would’ve laughed in your face. And not because I wasn’t confident in Nebraska’s talent, but who would’ve thought that after 9 weeks straight of...

The Nebraska Cornhuskers may not be playing until next Friday, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t getting ready for the game against Iowa.

Nebraska’s getting two weeks to prepare for the game that will decide its season.  The Huskers (5-6) have a bye on Saturday before facing Iowa (10-0) next Friday. Win, and the Huskers will be 6-6, bowl eligible and have (potentially) a win against an undefeated, top-five Hawkeyes’ team. That’d be a heck of a way to finish Year 1 of the Mike Riley era, which started incredibly...
