Nebraska Cornhuskers: Another season of disappointment

The 38-17 loss on Black Friday to Iowa would seal up another mediocre season for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Nebraska was manhandled by the Hawkeyes for four quarters en route to its third home loss of the season, the most since 2007, when the Huskers went 5-7 for only their second losing season since 1961. It was a fitting end to an otherwise disappointing season for the Huskers,...

Gophers report card: Big yardage but not big points against Spartans

For the second straight week, Minnesota faced one of the top defenses in the Big Ten. In fact, Michigan State's defense is arguably one of the best in the country. The result was a 14-3 loss for the Gophers, who finish the regular season with an 8-4 record that most people wouldn't have expected at the beginning of the year. Here are the grades for Saturday's game in...

Nebraska is poised for 6th straight 9-win season

Another quarterback went down with an injury, and so did an offensive lineman for the sixth time this season. A questionable penalty wiped out what would have been the go-ahead touchdown, and a walk-on who transferred to Nebraska for his final season kicked the winning field goal. Somehow, Nebraska keeps chugging along. The Cornhuskers came out of Saturday's 23-20 overtime...

The Land Grant Rant: Respect the Nebraska Cornhuskers

If it feels like my weekly rant is always starting off with a Nebraska flare lately, it’s because it is. Let’s face it, people who know me know that I’m not the world’s biggest Husker fan. I don’t particularly like writing about the Huskers. In fact, I would even file myself into the “hater” crowd from time to time, having grown up an Iowa football diehard. I snickered...

Nebraska Wins One in the Big House; Snaps Michigan's Winning Streak at Home
