Nebraska's 54-year sellout streak could be in jeopardy

Nebraska holds the nation’s longest sellout streak in college football — as the Cornhuskers have sold out every home game since way back in 1962. But it’s possible that the 2016 season sees the end of the 54-year feat. Unless, of course, more fans gobble up tickets. It was reported this past Monday that Nebraska still has 1,400 season tickets available. While school AD Shawn...

WATCH: Ohio State forward slaps floor, gets embarrassed

In basketball, a defender slapping the floor is done as a motivational tool. It sets the tone for the defense and lets the offense know it’s going to have a rough time imposing its will and scoring. Sometimes though, a floor slap doesn’t turn out the way it was planned. Such was the case with Ohio State’s Jae’Sean Tate today against Nebraska. With Cornhusker guard Tai...
